Today it was all "Sun Tech Days" .. attended Day 1 (21-02-2007) , and my I was anxiously waiting for one particular session .. session on JRuby (Java Implementation of Ruby) by Charles Nutter, JRuby core developer. Truly speaking it was for first time I am hearing about JRuby, even though I knew about Ruby for a long time even though I never tried it ! ... was pretty interesting session and it provided insight to Ruby/JRuby and how versatile it is as OO scripting language ? I am surprised to hear that there is a high probability that JVM can be a called just a "VM" - reason : because it will serve as single execution engine for all the Java s, JRuby s, Perl s ... guys did I hear it right ???
In his session Charles pointed out why Ruby can be special - it brings alllll the "fun" factor back to your coding/programming .. ! yeah thats really some good stuff right ? I am exploring it to find it out myself ...
