Presentation: JRuby - Bringing Ruby to the JVM

Bookmarks
In this InfoQ-exclusive presentation, JRuby leads Thomas Enebo and Charles Nutter show off the current state of the JRuby project, which has come a long way under their stewardship. The presentation shows compelling demonstrations of how the Ruby language and key Ruby applications can function well on the Java Virtual Machine.

Watch JRuby - Bringing Ruby to the JVM  (41 min).

Charles Nutter of the JRuby development team has been working to redesign JRuby's core interpreter and improve compatibility with Ruby 1.8. Lately he has been focusing on getting key Ruby applications to work. JRuby Project Manager and lead developer, Thomas Enebo is interested in web application development and the Ruby programming language.  The presentation was recorded in May at an InfoQ launch event near Java One.

  • our first video - minor bugs

    This is among InfoQ's first videos, and we have a couple of minor known bugs that may affect a minority of people:
    - if you're on a slower internet connection (512 or less) - you may need to refresh the page once or twice before it starts to work
    - if you don't have Flash 8+ installed, you will only hear audio - please upgrade (you should see a message to this effect on the interface)

    We are working on solving both of these... We hope you enjoy this video, it is the first of many! :)

    Since flash 8 is not yet available on Linux (thanks, Adobe :-( ), it would be nice if that version were not required . . .

    Regards,
