Recent years have seen the rapid spread of the Ruby programming language to business systems in private and public sectors, in addition to the development of web applications, for which Ruby has been commonly used.

In the past two annual meetings of the RubyWorld Conference held in Matsue, Shimane, various information and points of view have been shared among the Ruby community,including developers, engineers, and end-users, throughout the talks about case studies of advanced applications, latest technical trends, and the standardization of the language specification.

This year, the RubyWorld Conference will be held again, in which participants will be able to obtain a wide variety of information about Ruby, and gain an understanding of the “Ruby ecosystem”.

The aim will be to widen the opportunities to use Ruby and create a wider range of fields of application through the communication of information on such aspects as technical trends and cases of application in business, and work toward the international standardization (ISO) of Ruby.

The advantages and challenges of using Ruby for development will also be accurately communicated to system development “end users” by introducing cases of applications of Ruby.

The RubyWorld Conference aims to enlarge the Ruby market and business through such communication of information.
