Using the state_machine gem
A finite-state machine or "state machine" is a common behavioral model used in computer programming. In a nutshell, a state machine can be in one of a finite number of states. An event or condition can then trigger a transition to another (or the same) state, and various actions can occur during a transition. (See Finite-state machine for more.)
Scott will discuss the state_machine Ruby gem, including
- Why you might want to consider using the state_machine gem
- Summary of functions/options provided by the gem
- How we're using the state_machine gem at Merchants Bonding
