October 15, 2008: JRuby - A Java Programmer's Perspective

Can the Java and Ruby camps finally get together and feel the love?

We may find out at the next meeting of the Sarasota Java Users group.

Steve Goldsmith will discuss JRuby and using the Java Api.

JRuby is a 100% pure-Java implementation of the Ruby programming language.
