Watching Question for Matz

Ruby Conf 2013 – Question for Matz

It’s a nice Q&A session which talks about ruby history and now and futures, with funny interactions. At around 6:00, one question was what could be different if you resigning ruby now. One of the answer is about the concurrency, existing thread vs actor models. It’s interesting that many of the object-oriented languages are introducing actor based modeling features.

Ruby is equipped with Fiber for lightweight threading, but its mutable nature and performance penalties might be sometimes difficult to super-concurrent programming. Along with JRuby and Rubinius, how ruby will be going for this area may be an interesting topic to keep watching.
