  • The 9th Bit: Encodings in Ruby 1.9

    by Norman Clarke

    Description: Ruby 1.9 is unusual among contemporary programming languages in that it allows you to choose the encoding used internally for strings. This feature gives Ruby 1.9 great power and flexibility for internationalization, but can be a source of problems and confusion, particularly for Ruby developers making the change from 1.8.

    This talk will briefly go over the general concepts behind Ruby 1.9’s Encoding API, and explain the motivations behind the design decisions Ruby made. We’ll then spend most of the talk looking at the encoding-related challenges that you may face developing web applications in Ruby 1.9, and what you can do to avoid problems.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Wednesday 27th October
