This week I've challenged Practicing Ruby subscribers to analyze and improve a simple brainfuck implementation that Jia and I built. The goal is to practice code reading, refactoring, and design noodling on a non-trivial codebase in an interactive setting.
Mendicant University folks (along with the broader Ruby community) are welcome to join in and participate in this challenge as well, even if they're not subscribed to Practicing Ruby. Check out the full challenge details and dive in if you want to help me build The Most Incredible Brainfuck Implementation EVER!
