I’m pleased to announce the availability of a translation of the Ruby on Rails Tutorial to Japanese, the native language of Ruby creator Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Matz and several other Japanese Ruby developers over the years, and they’ve always impressed me both with their technical brilliance and their friendliness. I consider it a great honor that Yohei Yasukawa, Shozo Hatta, and their fellow contributors have chosen to translate the Rails Tutorial to Japanese, and I thank them for their excellent work.
As with the English version of the Rails Tutorial, the Japanese translation is available for free online as HTML; with my blessing, the Japanese translators are also offering ebook sales of the translation, the proceeds of which go to support their efforts. If you are a Japanese speaker, please check it out!
