Right on the heels of RubyConf 2006, ITConversations has posted an interview with the Benevolent Dictator of Ruby on the design of his language.
RubyConf was a great time. Some very interesting projects are in the works. The future of the language is bright. I was very impressed by the caliber of talent I met and the passion people feel for the language and their work.
It was really nice to finally talk with so many people from the community. I learned a lot and picked up some great ideas.
Some sessions were recorded on video. Hopefully Chad and Rich will make these and the slides available for those who couldn't make the conference.
