RubyKaigi 2016, I proposed a new concurrency abstraction named Guild for Ruby 3. Guild will achieve safe concurrency programming and parallel computation. We are making prototype of Guild. This talk will introduce Guild concepts and evaluation with prototype of Guild. Also we are discussing about the name of "Guild" to find out the another appropriate name.
