One strength of the Ruby community is the simplicity of sharing code via gems. Popular gems even develop their own ecosystem of plugins around them.

Jason fell in love with programming as a young boy watching his dad work in Clipper and dBase III (no, really). The obsession sparked there continues to this day. His current language crushes are Ruby and Haskell, and he works for New Relic on the Ruby Agent. When not at work, he enjoys experimenting with programming languages, cycling, homebrewing, and hanging out with his family.
