This event was just too awesome to not cross-post:
RoR Night @ Gust HQ
Concurrency has been a popular topic in the programming community in the latest decade and has received special attention in the Ruby community in the latest years. José Valim will start his talk by explaining why concurrency has become so important and why it is particularly hard to write safe concurrent software in Ruby, based on his experience from working on Ruby on Rails. He will finish this talk by discussing what Ruby can learn from other languages and the latest advances done by the Ruby community.About Jose
