Far too often, Ruby’s extension mechanisms are used without other extenders in mind. As the number of available gems and plugins grows, the propability increases that some combinations won’t work together. In this session, we focus on how to write reusable extensions that play well together with others, and show techniques how to workaround some of the problems that occur if others haven’t cared that much about extensibility.
