Attention all rubyists, there is a world of protocols for you to experience beyond HTTP. In this talk I'll introduce you to some of them, including the one I'm most passionate about: DNS. I'll provide you with some examples of how to use existing libraries to talk various protocols using Ruby and maybe even get into some low-level bit slinging. We'll have a grand old time geeking out and in the end you might just find a protocol that you can fall in love with other than HTTP.
