Programming is hard, so writing a programming language is hard too. If you think that your users are good at finding and creating weird edge cases, just wait until programmers are using your code. I'll be discussing some of the dumbest, unexpected, trickiest and weirded cases that we've encountered when implementing Rubinius. No shaming people here, some of the most interesting ones were us (ok, me) being stupid.
Dirkjan Bussink spends his working days between cows in the scenic country side of the Netherlands at Nedap. There he works on software and sometimes even plays with actual hardware devices. As one of his hobby's he likes tinkering with Rubinius and has been an active contributor for the last three years.
