Ruby isn't new or hip, but that's ok. It's a safe choice, which means we're now legacy and powering larger data systems, which is a good thing(™). This hardly means Ruby is boring. It's great to learn the next new thing (and you should!), but that doesn't mean you can't continue to build your next project in Ruby. The community is working on some initiatives to pave a bright future for Ruby. In this talk, we're going to touch on three specific projects that are interesting and applicable to the everyday Rubyist.
Reactive Programming think Node.js (jruby/ratpack)
Ruby Performance in modern APIs and Web Apps (helix/rust)
Scripting / CLI tools in Ruby (mruby/mruby-cli)
Even after 10 years, I've never been more excited to build things in Ruby!
