CHICAGO, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Enova's own Rubinius expert is teaming up with ChicagoRuby to provide insights and hands-on experience for developers looking to unlock extra programming power from coding languages. Brian Shirai, an Enova senior software engineer and the maintainer of the Rubinius language platform, will personally lead two upcoming ChicagoRuby events in March:
- Tuesday, March 4 – Beginning at 6 p.m. at ThoughtWorks, Shirai will introduce the Rubinius platform features that make it simple to implement other programming languages. RSVP here.
- Wednesday, March 12 - Rubinius Hack Night at 6:30 p.m. at Enova's offices at 200 W. Jackson (13th floor). All Ruby developers are welcome, including beginners. Bring your laptop with Ruby installed. Enova will provide food and drinks.
Shirai joined Enova from San Francisco-based Engine Yard in late 2013. He is leading the integration of Rubinius into Enova's tech armory, which will enable faster and more efficient development of new products and features.
"Rubinius is a cutting-edge technology that brings better performance and reduces costs by fully utilizing the modern multi-core computer systems," says Shirai. "The platform facilitates developer tools that improve the productivity and reliability of application code."
Enova is actively engaged in the Chicago developer community and regularly hosts meet-ups with ChicagoRuby. A group of Ruby and Ruby on Rails enthusiasts, ChicagoRuby provides forums for sharing knowledge and excitement about the language and the framework. Shirai will be speaking at ChicagoRuby's annual WindyCityRails conference Sept. 4-5. For more details, visit http://www.chicagoruby.org.

Shirai maintains the site, which is updated by Rubinius contributors and includes posts and documentation about using the language platform to its fullest advantage.
