  • Ruby Through the Ages (or, A Brief History of Ruby)

    by Dr Nic

    Join Dr. Nic Williams for a whimsical journey through the rich history of our favorite programming language. Ruby has come quite the distance from being a language that was designed by Matz to be “more powerful than Perl, and more object-oriented than Python”.

    He’ll take us through the storied evolution of Ruby before addressing the future—What will your investments of time and talent yield? Why Rubinius? Why JRuby? Why YARV? Get the answers to these questions and more with the characteristic cheek you’d expect from a man who once wore a tutu on stage.

    At 9:15am to 9:15am, Wednesday 18th May
