Exactly one week ago, I had the pleasure of giving a brief talk at NewHaven.rb’s October Lightning Talk meetup. The other presenters totally put me to shame but I did have fun with slides introducing my new RubyGem, CrunchPipe. I hope that CrunchPipe will evolve sufficiently so that it might provide a useful mechanism to help developers organize computation using the pipeline pattern. Furthermore, I find myself very interested in suggestions regarding methods of making CrunchPipe suitable for distributed programming. Checkout the slides for an overview and code examples.
