JRuby: A New Way to Run Ruby

You probably know Ruby. You may even know about JRuby. But do you know why JRuby should interest you, or how it can make your life as a Ruby developer a happy one?

In this talk, Charles Oliver Nutter, co-lead of the JRuby project, presents all the reasons why you should try JRuby for your next Ruby project. We'll explore the wonder that is the JVM, play with tools built for Java that now work great with Ruby, and cover the long list of features that make JRuby a standout Ruby implementation as well as a standout JVM language. Most of all, we'll have fun!

Whether you're a Rubyist or not, you'll learn something new...and maybe become the newest JRubyist on the block.
