Ruby Turns 15 on 24th Feb.

Kathryn Barrett reports that this month marks Ruby’s 15th birthday. Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto–creator of Ruby confirmed that Ruby was conceptualized and named on Feb. 24, 1993. Mark your calendars. While this doesn’t yet qualify Ruby as an old-timer among programming languages, it’s a good indication that it’s here to stay and probably doesn’t deserve to be called a newcomer any more.
