Migrating to Ruby 1.9

By Peter Cooper / April 29, 2008


Migrating to Ruby 1.9 was a presentation given by Bruce Williams at Scotland on Rails earlier this month. The slides, available in PDF format, stand on their own extremely well, and will prove a useful resource for anyone not too deeply engrossed in Ruby 1.9 yet. Bruce covers most of the key changes.

As an aside, Bruce was interviewed by Satish Talim of recently.


  1. Todd Werth says:

    This is very good change (block local vars) in my ever so humble opinion.

  2. mike wyatt says:

    :this === "this"
    # true

    doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense. is there any discussion on this?
