Building Rubinius in Ruby
I had intended to write a post in the near future about why building Rubinius in Ruby was important – but I see today that Mathieu Martin has beaten me to it, with the first in a series of articles on Rubinius. In Part 1: Rubies all the way down, he makes the case for building Rubinius in Ruby, setting out the pros and dispelling the myths about dynamic languages being too slow to self-host. It’s a great read, and a much more eloquent argument than I could have made.
I’m certainly looking forward to future articles in this series!
