    An opinionated language server for Ruby

    After lunch, I parked at the Ruby LSP table. I worked with Julie and Drew on HEREDOC endings. We also found an issue that we spent some time digging into, but ran out of time before we had a solution. It was fun spelunking through the code with friends. Ufuk joined us in looking at the cursor indentation issue. His sage wisdom helped us navigate through an unfamiliar codebase.

  • Paul Reece gave an introduction to the Polars library. This started with an introduction to the Series and Data Frame data structures. Paul then walked through data cleaning operations available in Polars. He shared a repository of resources and code samples at the end of his session.
