Brian Sam-Bodden on JRuby:

JRuby is a 100% Java implementation of the Ruby programming language. It is Ruby for the JVM. JRuby provides a complete set of core "builtin" classes and syntax for the Ruby language, as well as most of the Ruby Standard Libraries. The standard libraries are mostly Ruby's own complement of .rb files, but a few that depend on C language-based extensions have been reimplemented. Some are still missing, but we hope to implement as many as is feasible.

Brian will show how to write a DSL for a Java Library and also an assortment of JRuby projects.


The group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at around 6:30PM at ASU SkySong/HackSpace , 1475 N Scottsdale Rd # 150, Scottsdale, AZ (480) 884-1860
