Creator Of Ruby Visits Scribd

Yukihiro Matsumoto ("Matz"), the creator of the ruby programming language, visited Scribd today, along with a delegation representing the Fukuoka Ruby Group. Scribd, one of the top 100 websites in the world, is built using Ruby, and is considered one of the largest, most-trafficked rails operations on the globe.

Jared Friedman, Scribd co-founder, gave a presentation about the company and Matsumoto gave a short presentation about Ruby to interested employees and guests. Afterwards, "Matz" hung around to mingle in Scribd Headquarters, shaking hands, taking pictures and obliging fans with signatures adorned in Ruby memorabilia and programming language books.
