Our Congratulations to Ruby Contest Winners!

Hello everyone,

No matter how tricky a problem is, there is always a solution, and sometimes multiple ones. Indeed, the UTF-8 regular expressions problem we proposed for the recent RubyMine Contest inspired many solutions!

The Ruby community answered our call right away and lent us a helping hand, which was great to see. We got over 100 pull requests! After carefully considering all of them, we finally selected the contest winner.

tmaier

And that winner is… Tobias L. Maier!

Tobias, we heartily congratulate you on winning the main prize and thank you for the most elegant way to convert the regular expression to pass the test. A $500 Amazon certificate and your free RubyMine license are waiting for you!

In addition, these other interesting solutions cannot go unmentioned:

Each of these five contestants also receives a free RubyMine license from us. Congratulations!

A personal message will be sent to each of the winners, with details on how to redeem their prizes. If you see your name in this post and you don’t receive any email from us within the next day, please ping us by commenting on this post.

Again, we thank all the developers who took part on the contest. It’s awesome to know there is no Ruby problem the community cannot solve. And with your help, RubyMine improves as well. We encourage you to try RubyMine Tsubaki if you haven’t already, and do give us your feedback to help make it even more intelligent.


Develop with pleasure!

Solve a Tricky Ruby Problem and Win a Prize!

Hello everyone,

You know that annoying feeling when you have crutches in your code and can’t seem to find a better solution, don’t you? Well, this is it. We faced a tricky Ruby problem: UTF-8 regular expressions fail when working with non UTF-8 strings. We’ve tried to solve it and improve this chunk of code, but to no avail. We were really stumped. And then we realized this problem could be a good task for a Ruby contest!

RubyMine Tsubaki Roadmap

Hello everyone,

Summer is the kind of time when we draw a breath and look into the future. In terms of development it is a good time for planning the next version and that’s what we did.

Tsubaki

Please welcome the roadmap for the next version which is codenamed Tsubaki; the name, traditionally stands for a Japanese tree, so it is a beautiful camellia this time. By the way, the codename was suggested by a JetBrains enthusiast – Masanobu Imai and we thank him a lot!

The most significant changes will include the Chef and Puppet support, Slim formatter, the console aware of the debugger’s context, RVM available as a remote SDK, the EditorConfig support, and more.

Stay tuned not to miss the EAP launch!


Develop with pleasure this summer!

Meet the RubyMine Team at RailsConf 2014 in Chicago, Illinois

Since 2006, RailsConf has been the largest gathering of Rails developers in the world, and for most of that time, Rubyists as well. We first joined the conference in 20o9 and since then RailsConf is one of the main events of the year for our team.

We’ve been looking forward to RailsConf 2014 and it’s meeting all of our expectations. The first day was great with interesting and inspiring talks that included ours with Justin Gordon, JetBrains Technical Evangelist. But the most exciting part for us is meeting you face-to-face, the top Rails talent, companies, and project owners from around the world, and listening to your feedback personally.

So if you have any questions, are interested in catching a demo or two, or just looking for company over a cup of coffee during the break, you’re most welcome to join us at the most colorful JetBrains/RubyMine booth in the expo hall April 23-24!  We will also be wearing our RubyMine t-shirts so you can easily find us around the show.

Here we are:

We would be pleased to meet you! By the way, if you’re interested in pairing with Justin, he’ll be at AirPair 11:00 to 11:30 today.
