MATSUE, Japan, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Executive Committee for the RubyWorld Conference (RWC) announced on September 12 that it has set the dates for RWC 2013, this year's biggest business conference in Japan, as seen below.
The "Ruby" programming language is entering a new era as its use expands into various situations. February this year marked 20 years since its development, and Ruby 2.0 has been released as a major version for the first time in five years.
In the past, people used to believe that "there would never be software from Japan used around the world." But Ruby's success has clearly revealed that this "common sense of the past" was nothing but a bunch of assumptions.
By telling everyone about Ruby's possibilities, this year's RubyWorld Conference will provide an opportunity to create a "new common sense" as well as "the future."
