Riffing on Obie

by pat eyler

Obie Fernandez posted a nice little overview of the JAOO "Future of Programming Panel", in which he highlighted the panels answers to the questions:

  • Will (the) Ruby (community) in 2016 look and feel like Java in 2006?

  • How can Ruby avoid the same fate as Smalltalk?

The answers were interesting, but they weren't from Ruby insiders. I'm a lot more interested in what the community thinks, so pick up the mic, and let me know what you think. (Then go and read Obie's post.)

I see a couple mentions of type inference, which is interesting. What I'd really like to see is a write-up of why Ruby should include it and how it would look.
