The extent to which Ruby has spread is not the result of one person’s efforts, rather it is the product of the joint endeavour of all those autonomously involved since its release as an open source software in 1995.
However, it is inevitable that global attention falls on the project’s initiator, and those who have been actively working with ruby for a long time.
It has been decided to hold the ‘Ruby Prize’ (Newcomer Award), to recognise the efforts of new members to the Ruby community. The Ruby Prize commends individuals for their outstanding achievements within the prior two to three years.
The prize-winners are chosen from a selection of candidates recommended by members of the specially formed Ruby Prize Group and also candidates recommended from non-Ruby Prize Group members. The award will be made at the Ruby World Conference 2013. A monetary prize will also be awarded as a supplementary prize provided by Matsue City (Ruby Prize Sponsor).
We thank you for your continued support in the further development and growth of the Ruby Community through the Ruby Prize.
Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto,
Ruby Prize 2013 Executive Committee Chairperson
