Ruby like it’s 1995

Matias has been writing Ruby for almost a decade and in his spare time he’s a beer enthusiast and general internet astronaut.

Cast your mind back to the year 1995. Gansta’s Paradise is the top hit of the year. Friends is the hottest show on TV.

And just days after I turn nine, Matz releases Ruby publicly for the first time.

In this talk I go back to Ruby 0.95 and see what it takes to get it running on modern hardware.
