RubyWorld Conference 2019 Keynote Speakers decided 2019-07-08

Keynote speakers of RubyWorld Conference 2019 have been decided.

Yukihiro Matsumoto

Ruby Association

Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto is the creator of the recently popular Ruby language. He started development of Ruby in 1993, so it's actually as old as Java. Now he works for Network Applied Communication Laboratory Inc. (NaCl, also known as netlab.jp) which has sponsored Ruby development since 1997. He also serves as a chairman of the Ruby Association, a non-profit organization focused on supporting Ruby. Since his real name is too long to remember and is difficult for non-Japanese speakers to pronounce correctly, he uses the nickname Matz on the Net.

Nadia Odunayo

The StoryGraph
Founder and CEO

Nadia is the founder of The StoryGraph. Before that, she co-directed Ignition Works, a company that did a mix of in-house product development and software consultancy, helping large firms to manage their cloud platforms.
