    The Ruby Rouges speak with Fabio Akita, a return guess. Fabio is a blogger at AkitaOnRails.com and is an organizer and speaker at Ruby Dev. Conf. Brazil. Fabio mentions have minor open source projects. Fabio talks revolve around “How do you as a Ruby Developer, dive into new languages,” such as Crystal and Elixir. Fabio will be speaking on the upcoming Ruby Dev Summit.

    In particular, we dive pretty deep on:

    • Should we just all just go to Elixir?
    • Problems with choosing and staying with one language?
    • Ruby is a ZPE language or 0.8 languages.
    • Ruby on Rail was never a full solution.
    • Elixir is not a difficult language, object-oriented, and functional.
    • Elixir is linked an operating system.
    • What drove you to Elixir?
    • When new languages come up to replace something you already have…
    • Crystal is a getting a stable API in a few months.
    • LLVM –  Low-Level Virtual Machine, or compiler framework
    • Copy and pasting your Ruby code into the Crystal compiler
    • Dropbox client running on python
    • Using Rabbit MQ
    • and much more.
