The Problem with Compiling Ruby
I've been programming since was a was a kid, and left university to start my first company. Since then I've co-founded a number of tech companies. It was during one of those startups I started using Ruby in 2005. Compiler technology has always been a special interest of mine, and since 2008 I've been semi-regularly working on a Ruby compiler written in Ruby.
