…shameful addiction, which I struggle daily to overcome, yesterday I heard about a GoGaRuCo talk called "Why Hasn't Ruby Won?" , and today I learned of a Wired article which will no doubt fuel plenty of Ruby FUD for months (and maybe even years) to come:

Twitter's engineers came to realize that Ruby wasn't the best way to juggle tweets from millions of people across the globe — and make sure the site could stay up during its headline moment …

Sarah Mei gave a talk at GoGaRuCo entitled "Why Hasn't Ruby Won?" It's a trick question; I haven't seen the talk itself, but at the end of the slide deck , Mei concludes:

Ruby can't win, because language choices hinge on familiarity. And everyone who walks in Ruby's door has given their brain a different set of training data than you gave yours. So not everyone's going to be a match.

This is a game where there is no winning. But there is definitely losing.

…rich client-side applications. While we have a strong understanding of how the server executes our code, we also need to have a deep understanding of how the client (browser) executes our code. Don't look at the browser as a black box, but instead start to look at it as a full operating system that your applications run in.

New Relic was proud to be a sponsor of GoGaRuCo 2012. And we're already counting down to GoGaRuCo 2013. See you there.

Aaron Patterson gave a talk at GoGaRuCo 2010 about the latest changes in Ruby 1.9.2′s standard library and one of the topics he spoke on was MiniTest. The Ruby community has been particularly innovative in the world of testing and Ruby 1.8′s Test::Unit library is circa 2003, providing nothing but the most basic testing API. Every Ruby project I've ever worked on has skipped Test::Unit and pulled in many different test gems (e.g. rspec, shoulda, mocha, flexmock) to provide …

While at GoGaRuCo this weekend, I finally made good on an experiment I had been thinking about for a while: a static compiler for Ruby . I thought I'd share it with you good people today.

First we have a simple Ruby script with a class in it:

We compile it with fastruby, and it produces two .java source files: Hello.java and RObject.java.

Hello.java implements the methods the Ruby class does in the script, and calls the same methods (with some mangling for invalid …

In fact DHH, is one of the few counter-examples I can think of - after the first Gogaruco, when these concepts were explained to him he said roughly "Hmm, that makes sense, if you are already the minority in the room, and here for professional development or work, that wouldn't be very fair, to be forcefully exposed to something that highlights just how in the minority you are." When he did that I gained even more respect for him than when I got in a technical debate with him …
