Wanted: Rock star seeks Ruby coder
Blink-182 frontman asks fans to get in touch regarding Ruby coding experience
If you're a dab hand at Ruby coding, you could be just the person that Blink-182 guitarist and frontman Tom Delonge is looking for.
Last night, Delonge - also the brains behind music and film project Angels & Airwaves - posted up a request to fans on photo-sharing site Instagram. In the post, a picture of a Ruby, he asked if anyone did Ruby beck-end coding, and if that person would like to personally work with him.
"Who here does Ruby backend coding? Who here wants to work with me personally? I will read comments for anyone that is interested," he wrote.
At the time of writing, Delonge had not revealed what the coding project would consist of, nor had he publicly responded to the comments on his photo.
However, Delonge has in recent months teased fans with snippets of information about an upcoming Angels & Airwaves project. He formed the band during a Blink-182 hiatus, producing a number of albums and a feature-length film.
Given Delonge personally asked to find a Ruby coder, it would stand to reason that the project would involve Angels & Airwaves, which is seen by many as his pet project.
Ruby is the general, all-purpose programming language developed in the mid-1990s by Yukihiro ‘Matz' Matsumoto in Japan. It supports multiple programming paradigms, including functional, object-oriented and imperative. It also has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management.
