Ruby 2.1.1 Released!

Here’s the link

Ruby 2.1 has many improvements including speedup without severe incompatibilities. You can use this on Rails and some applications, and get more comfortable experience.

R.I.P. Jim

I was sad and shocked to wake up to the news that Jim Weirich passed away. He contributed so much to Ruby community and was one of the nice Rubyist.

Not only he created Rake, but he also created Flexmock. One of those component that I loved so much.

I’ll always remember Jim whenever I issue a rake command.

I’d like to thank Jim for everything and will always remember his gifts to us while he was with us.

Daily Vitamin #13 – Email Lists I Subscribe To

It’s really difficult to keep up with all the changes given that I work on Objective-C/Cocoa, Ruby, Android, JavaScript, and so much more. I subscribe to these email newsletters and allocate time to go through the changes and upcoming stuff. It initially felt like I was getting spammed, but over time, I found them to be extremely useful. Besides, these are weekly or monthly, so the frequency does not bother me at all. Check it out for yourself.
