KidsRuby gets translated into French, Spanish, and Japanese
KidsRuby is a free and open-source Ruby programming software built just for kids, and the latest version has gone international with Japanese, French, and Spanish translations, just in time as school is back in session.
The new KidsRuby release still offers a unique and fun way to learn programming, but now with full translations into Japanese, French, and Spanish, so even more kids all over the world can have the same learning experience that has English speaking children raving about Ruby.
“Programming really is fun, and helping the next generation learn about technology is incredibly important,” says Ron Evans, the “Ringleader” of The Hybrid Group, a software company located in Los Angeles, CA, who are the original creators of KidsRuby. “Software is not limited by borders or languages, and neither is the joyfulness of children. Now thanks to the efforts of contributors all over the world, KidsRuby is ready for the global village.”
KidsRuby is an open source project, and Ruby practitioners all over the world have joined together to introduce children into the future of software development. “My teenage son has shown interest in programming, but had a hard time getting started. I am a bad teacher.” joked Yukihiro ‘Matz’ Matsumoto, the inventor of the Ruby programming language. “My (own) tools are too advanced and tailored for a UNIX hacker. KidsRuby (esp. Japanese version) will help him learn programming by himself. Awesome. I see (a) bright future.”
