  • Tom Stuart
  • 00:20:59

Matz announced in his RubyConf 2014 keynote that Ruby 3.0 might have a static type system. What does that really mean? How should we feel about it? Will Ruby 3.0 still be Ruby? In this talk I’ll unpack what Matz said and make some educated guesses about what it means for the future of Ruby.

  • Tom is a computer scientist and programmer. He has lectured on optimising compilers at the University of Cambridge, co-organises the Ruby Manor conference, and is a member of the London Ruby User Group. His latest book, Understanding Computation, was published by O'Reilly in 2013.
