CodeMash 2010 – What Makes Ruby Different

Presented by Joe O’Brien, Mark Peabody, Leon Gersing

I always enjoy listening to Joe talk, his enthusiasm about Ruby is admirable. The talk focused on the differences in how to solve many programming problems with different languages. The ones demoed against Ruby were C# and Java.

I did not walk away with learning anything new about Ruby, ironically I learned more about C# in this than I did anything else. But for those new the Ruby it was a good talk especially since most of the developers here are either .Net or J2EE.
