Ruby Central and the Google Summer of Code

by Austin Ziegler

For the second year in a row, I have the privilege of being a Summer of Code mentor for Ruby Central, the US-based organisation responsible for the promotion of the Ruby language and the parent organisation for both the International Ruby Conference and the International Rails Conferences.

I must say the project you are mentoring, Rubyland, looks pretty neat. I may have to port that to Haiku when the student finishes his Mac OS X specific version :)

The rest of the projects sound good too.

What's cool about the project is that, at least as I understand it, there's very little that's not portable about it. It essentially has a couple of small pieces to listen to message/event buses that then interact with messages on the buses. It should work with dbus or bonobo pretty easily on Linux, and I'm sure there's something for Windows like that (maybe a way to trap notification bubbles?). Yeah. It's all exciting, I think.
