Ruby OSS community rant/criticism.
We as a community need to move *down* the stack. #ruby is one of the few language that's not controlled by a large corp. But we've been complacent and are not bearing the burden of maintaining it.
Compile ruby from source, learn Bison, learn C, ramp up on compiler theory, help bare the load.
Right now it's an upside down house of cards where few understand the language at an intimate level. This isn't sustainable long term. Get your hands dirty ❤️.
I *think* it's been running for 3 years, and I'm sure it's a great event, but I've never attended. This time I will though.
There's going to be a Ruby unconference in London on 6 October and it's FREE! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/london-ruby-community-unconference-2018-tickets-47275277628 #conference
I've been a ruby/rails developer for about 11 years and currently work at Loco2 where I do other things too (full-stack/devops). Originally from Russia, but now live in North Herts, England.
