Episode #175: REPL-Driven Development

In today's episode I cover a classic development technique that doesn't get enough press these days. Interactive, exploratory development was and is common in the Lisp world, and Ruby's dynamic nature is aptly suited to take advantage of this style of programming. Today I'll show you how I used REPL-driven development in Pry and Emacs to begin to build a video export tool.
By the way, right after I made this episode I discovered that Conrad Irwin had done a RubyConf talk on REPL-driven development. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9j_Mf91M0I
