Ruby Creator Yukihiro Matsumoto talks about Ruby 3 (interview)

Not had time to read it yet but this looks like a good interview…

Our friend Yukihiro Matsumoto, creator of the Ruby programming language, joined us for an interview right after the release of Ruby 3.0! Grigory Petrov, Developer Relations at Evrone, spoke with Mr. Matsumoto about the new features in the latest major Ruby release. Mr. Matsumoto also shared details about his approach to improving Ruby and gave us insight into the future of the language.

Thank you for joining us and for releasing Ruby 3.0. This is a huge release with a lot of experiments, feedback, challenges, and features. Which feature of Ruby 3.0 do you like the most?

Yukihiro: I like pattern matching, including the right-hand assignment. At the same time, I’m very excited about the ractors and the static type checking, because I think it will change and enhance the culture of Ruby programming.
