Time Flies

Published on May 01, 2019

On this day 10 years ago I launched the Ruby Toolbox. When I built the original site I definetely did not think this funny little idea of mine would still be useful to people ten years later, but here we are :)

Shortly after the release I went to RailsConf 2009, told people about it and from there on the site started to gain popularity in the community pretty quickly.

If you'd like to hear a bit more about the Ruby Toolbox's history I spoke a bit about this with Brittany Martin last year during my appearance on the Ruby on Rails Podcast.

I'm very proud I could add a tiny little piece to the wonderful Ruby ecosystem - thanks to all the people I've had the pleasure to meet and talk about the Toolbox (and a million other things) over the years, thanks to everyone making Ruby such a fantastic community to be a part of, and last but not least thanks to Ruby Together for their support of my recent work, without which the site would likely not exist anymore!

Here's to the next 10 years :)
