Ruby’s chief designer visits VMware campus

It’s not a secret that VMware is working hard to expand its Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) product, recently renamed vFabric, to support more application frameworks and languages.¬†
VMware is reportedly very interested in both PHP and Ruby, but support for the latter may be the first to arrive.

Dave McCrory, the founder and former CTO of Hyper9, in fact recently¬†spotted Yukihiro Matsumoto, Ruby’s chief designer, at the VMware campus in Palo Alto.

As McCrory correctly highlights, the VMware’s interest for Ruby is also confirmed by several rumors, like the potential acquisition of Engine Yard, the hosting provider that offers a popular Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud for single and multi-tier Ruby-on-Rails applications.
