Ruby, a programming language employed around the world, was developed by Yukihiro Matsumoto, a resident of Matsue City, Shimane Prefecture. Ruby Conference Thailand, one of the largest international conferences in ASEAN, held in Bangkok in October 2023, brought together the engineers from all around the world. The Shimane Brand Promotion Division of the Shimane Prefectural Government Overseas Expansion Support Office sponsored a joint mission team with Fukuoka Prefectural Government to attend the conference. Three IT companies from Shimane Prefecture traveled to the event, with Mr. Matsumoto serving as team leader.
In addition to viewing presentations on technology trends, team members participated in social events with engineers from other countries. The day before the main event, team members visited two IT companies in Bangkok to catch up on the trends in Thailand and exchange information.
