You know that JRuby is Ruby for the JVM. But did you know you can deploy Ruby applications anywhere Java applications can go? Did you know that all the amazing profiling and debugging tools for the JVM work great with JRuby? Did you know that the entire world of Java libraries are available to Ruby users?
In this talk, Charlie will show how JRuby is bringing Ruby to a wider world, making it possible to build Ruby apps for Java enterprises, for Android phones, for Java-based clouds like Google's AppEngine, and much more. He'll demonstrate some of the amazing JVM tools like VisualVM, which allow you to monitor performance and memory use of live applications. He'll also show you how easy it is to use any Java library from Ruby. Finally, he'll talk about strategies for getting Ruby into organizations that only allow Java or JVM-based deployments.
