It doesn't matter the science field, nowadays every research needs some kind of programming task to get/analize/produce results. When faced to a computational problem, scientists without programming background often choose Java, Python, R, Excel… to scratch their itch, why not Ruby?
Why scientists and people in academia and research centers are not using Ruby?
What can we do to make Ruby the language of preference in science? Is that even possible?
I'll ask you these questions and try to answer them in this talk.
