Why hello there! Welcome to 2023: new year, new Ruby version. 2022 was a great year for the Ruby ecosystem: a major new version of an interesting web framework (Hanami ), the release of [a Ruby version](https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2022/12/25/ruby-3-2-0-released/ that’s bringing performance improvements and Web Assembly support, version 1.0 of Bridgetown.rb, a new view framework, the continuing rise of Mastodon and the return of awesome in person conferences.
Not to mention all the other amazing work that the community continues to do - from meetup groups like us to podcasts, blog posts and efforts to help even more people join the community via First Ruby Friend.
With all that going on, there’s plenty to read up on. As per usual, ScotRUG is going to take a break from Meetups over January while we settle into the new year. See you on the first Thursday in February!
