Bozhidar is the author of RuboCop and the editor of the community Ruby and Rails style guides. Most people would probably describe him as an Emacs zealot (and they would be right). He's also quite fond of the Lisp family of languages, functional programming in general and Clojure in particular. Believe it or not, Bozhidar has hobbies and interests outside the realm of computers, but we won't bore with those here.

All About RuboCop

In this talk we'll go over everything you need to know about RuboCop - a powerful Ruby static code analyzer that makes it easy for you to enforce a consistent code style throughout your Ruby projects.

We'll begin by examining the events that lead to the creation of RuboCop, its early days and its evolution, effective RuboCop usage and some of its cool but little-known features. Then we'll continue with a brief look into RuboCop's internals and show you how easy it is to extend its functionality.

We'll wrap the talk with a glimpse inside RuboCop's future and discuss some of the challenges the project faces and some of the work that remains to be done, before RuboCop finally reaches the coveted 1.0 version.
