Trying to determine presentation author


#1

There’s a presentation on ruby-doc.org, in the Why Ruby? section, simply
titled, “Ruby Language Talk”

The description says, “A presentation to an R&D group of engineers about
Ruby. Contains several formats: PPT, PNGs, RTF, MHT and plain text.”

And the there is a link to a ~2MB zip file with all those formats.

However, what isn’t included (as best I can tell) is any attribution; I
cannot figure out who wrote this presentation.

Does anyone know who the author is?

Thanks!

That would be me. It’s a presentation I gave to Avaya Labs (Australia)
R&D group around mid 2004. It’s based on various slides stolen from
other places, most notably Matz’s various talks. I originally uploaded
it to the WhyRuby project (I think it was on RubyForge - but the
project seems to have been deleted?).

Anyway, use at will.

Cheers,

Thank you!

(BTW, all the Why Ruby? material was moved to ruby-doc.org sometime last
year: http://www.ruby-doc.org/whyruby)
