I've been really enjoying James Edward Gray II's Rubies in the Rough articles. Every couple of weeks, he publishes something that is guaranteed to get me thinking about some aspect of coding I hadn't considered before.

His latest article is part I of an exploration of an algorithm for the Hitting Rock Bottom problem posed by by Gregory Brown & Andrea Singh. At its core, the problem asks you to simulate pouring water into a 2D container, filling it using a simple set of rules.

Originally published as part of the first volume of the Practicing Ruby newsletter on February 28, 2011. Most of these issues draw inspiration from discussions and teaching sessions at my free online school, Mendicant University .

In this two part series, I've been looking at the classical design patterns laid out by the Gang of Four and exploring their relevance to modern day Ruby programming. Rather than teaching the design patterns themselves, my goal is to give …

Gregory Brown

Also known as @ seacreature and also known for Ruby Mendicant. I was used to use his Ruport project before, which leverages the ancient PDF Writer to generate PDF reports. But PDF Writer was abandoned. So Gregory decided to create a new foundation to deal with PDF and from there we got Prawn, a more modern and capable Ruby library. Besides that he authored the " Ruby Best Practices" book, which I recommend to anyone interested in improving …
