Rubyist and writer originally from Montreal living and working in Tokyo. I'm the author of Mobility, a pluggable translation framework for Ruby. I work with a team of developers at Degica building payment and e-commerce systems for the Japanese and Asian markets.

The Ruby Module Builder Pattern

Did you know that Ruby has configurable modules? One of the most interesting features of Ruby, the Module Builder Pattern is also probably its least well-known. Simply subclass the Module class, dynamically define some methods in an initializer, and boom, you can create named, customizable modules to include in other classes. In this talk, I'll explain how I've leveraged this unique feature of Ruby to build a translation gem called Mobility that can handle a wide range of different storage strategies through a single, uniform interface.
