Don Box Cries Ruby For Influentials
(Eye shake, cartoon duck honk.) So he’s stepped up from wanting a language for his kids to wanting it for Microsoft at large. While speaking at the Competitive Influentials conference, Don Box is paraphrased as: if he could change one thing at MSFT, it would be that Ruby would become the language of choice.
If I could change one thing about my pet spider Daniel, it would be that Ruby became his language of choice. Check back a year from now and we’ll see who’s made more progress.
Search around the conference link above for Ruby and you’ll see hints of interest throughout the talks there. (Thank Gordon Hartley on Ruby-Talk.)
