RubyConf 2005 Keynote
Matz talked about1 new features and ideas of the next major version of Ruby, Ruby 2.0, at the 2nd day of Ruby Conference 2005. Here is the video (198MB2). It has whole the session except a short part of the beginning. Please download it to your PC before viewing it. Anybody can upload it to BitTorrent?
RubyConf really gets an international conference. Many people come from US, Europe, Asia and Australia. 13 Japanease are here from Japan: Matz, Aoki, Arai, Etoh, Maeda, Moriwaki (me), Nishida, Ogino, Sasada, Suzuki, Takahashi, Tanaka, Urabe and Igarashi from US.
Sunday’s afternoon there were two workshops: Ruby on Rails 1.0 featrues and Demystifying Continuations. I took the latter. Samples in the slides tell the basics of continuation. As ko1 said at the last of the session, variables of Ruby and C inside Ruby work differently. After getting back from continuations ones of C are reset, while Ruby’s are not.
