Type-checking in Ruby 3 using RBS

Ruby 3 has introduced a new syntax language for dynamic typing called RBS. In short, it is a language that we can use to describe the data types used in a Ruby class. We can define the data type of variables and the return type of methods used in a class using RBS. Why do we need type-checking? Since Ruby is a dynamically typed language, we don't need to define the data type of the variables we are using. Ruby automatically assigns a type based on the variable's value at runtime. Let's take the below class as an example. # basic_

All about "Data" Simple Immutable Value Objects in Ruby 3.2

In Ruby 3.2, a new class Data was introduced as a way to define simple immutable value objects. A value object is a type of object that represents a value in a program, such as a point in 2D space or a date. The main advantage of value objects is that they are easy to understand, simple to use, and can improve the readability and maintainability of code. The proposal to add Data class was accepted by Matz on the Ruby forum here. How does it work?Using the newly defined class Data we can create a simple immutable

Introduction to Ractors in Ruby 3

Ruby 3 has introduced an experimental feature called Ractors. In this article, let's learn more about Ractor with example usage.

Ruby 3 adds Scheduler Interface for Fibers

Ruby adds Fiber SchedulerInterface to support non-blocking fiber. Splitting long operations into fiber hooks and Scheduler will manage it for us.
