RubyWorld Conference will be held at Shimane Prefectural Convention Center “Kunibiki Messe”, Shimane Prefecture, during September 7th – 8th , 2009.


The programming language “Ruby” is rapidly expanding its application in the field of business. On the other hand, some possible concerns have also been expressed as to whether the performance of the language is reliable enough in applying it to business, whether the specification of the language is stable enough, or whether the language has enough accumulation of performance records in business fields, and so on.

In order to brush away such concerns, “RubyWorld Conference”, an international conference on Ruby, has been organized at Matsue City in Shimane Prefecture, the places closely linked with Ruby. The aim of this International Conference is to promote the use of Ruby in wider areas, through presentations and discussions in various sessions on the most advanced technologies concerning Ruby, the movement toward the standardization of the language specification, and advanced application examples.
