Did you know that only 22% of software developers are female? It's worse in open source: only 1–5% are women.

We want to use +Google Code-in as a mechanism for getting more women involved in scientific computing and open source software development. Join us!

Hey +Chantz Yang, thanks for your comments. Are you subscribed to our Google Group? You can also check out the issues tracker: http://github.com/SciRuby/nmatrix/issues That's the clearest roadmap we've got. We're very close to beta, and I think you should find NMatrix quite usable. If not, please feel free to request a feature (or implement it yourself). We're happy to help.

Mostly we use C/C++ libraries — often the same ones that NumPy depends upon.

Just make sure to install the latest version. `gem install nmatrix --pre`, since we're in beta release candidate status right now.

20% of software developers are female. Only 1.5–5% of open source software developers are female. We need to fix that.
Women make up 51% of the American workforce, and yet only 20% of software engineers are female. Worldwide, the situation is similar. In open source …

Tools for Scientific Computing in Ruby
Introduction

Ruby has for some time had no equivalent to the beautifully constructed NumPySciPy, and matplotlib libraries for Python.

We believe that the time for a Ruby science and visualization package has come and gone. Sometimes when a solution of sugar and water becomes super-saturated, from it precipitates a pure, delicious, and diabetes-inducing crystal of sweetness, induced by no more than the tap of a finger. So it is, we believe, with the need for numeric and visualization libraries in Ruby.
