Today I met Matz. The creator of Ruby.

This is might not be a big deal for others who have been going to the lone star ruby conference for a while, but I got to finally hear Matz today.

I snapped a quick picture along with two of my team members from HomeAway. I am the guy on the right.

Matz used his keynote to talk about features to come in the next version of ruby such as  scoped monkey patching, module prepending, lazy mapping, and ruby keyword arguments.

He also mentioned mruby, that is coming soon.  I checked out the source and ran the tests. Here is the source link

download the source and run ‘make’ and ‘make test’.  You will then find mruby, mirb in the bin directory.

James,Alan, and myself with Matz.
