  • It could be heaven or it could be hell: Pleasure and peril of being a polyglot programmer

    by Venkat Subramaniam

    With so many languages on the Java platform, there are real benefits to learning and using them. However, these languages bring along some challenges as well. Attend this keynote to learn, from a world renowned polyglot programmer and author of books on multiple languages, the pleasures and perils of being a polyglot programmer.

  • JRuby: Full of Surprises

    by Tom Enebo and Charles Nutter

    Surely something JRuby-ish from the JRuby guys.

    At 10:45am to 11:30am, Tuesday 22nd May

  • Adventures on the Golden Path

    by Jeff Casimir

    Rails 1.0 was about proving we could build the same functionality as the other web frameworks, but doing it faster. Rails 2.0 was about pushing the vanguard forward, setting new trends for how the web should be built. Rails 3.0 paid down technical debt and laid the foundation for our future. Now what?

    Rails has always guided developers down the "golden path" of best practices. Let's look at potholes needing filling, ways we can straighten the dangerous corners, and figure out where this road might be heading.

    At 11:30am to 12:00pm, Tuesday 22nd May

  • JRuby and Rubinius: Thnad's Revenge

    by Ian Dees

    At last year's JRubyConf, we talked about Thnad, a fictional programming language. Thnad served as a vehicle to explore the joy of building a compiler using JRuby, BiteScript, Parslet, and other tools. Now, Thnad is back with a second runtime: Rubinius. Come see the Rubinius environment through JRuby eyes. Together, we'll see how to grapple with multiple instruction sets and juggle contexts without going cross-eyed.

    At 1:30pm to 2:00pm, Tuesday 22nd May

  • Deploying JRuby Web Applications

    by Joe Kutner

    This talk will help you bridge the gap between enjoying JRuby, and using it in the real world. JRuby can simplify your deployment architecture, while making your application more reliable, scalable, and easier to manage. You'll quickly see the benefits, but it will require a new technology stack.

    There are three deployment strategies that can be used with any Rack-based JRuby application, and this talk will provide an overview of each of them. We'll also discuss the technologies that make them possible, and when it's appropriate to use each strategy. You'll learn how the Warbler gem can be used to create an web application archive file. Then we'll discuss how the light-weight Trinidad web server can be used to create a flexible, modular deployment that still feels friendly and familiar. Finally, you'll learn how to power an application with TorqueBox, an all-in-one environment that includes built-in support for messaging, scheduling and daemons.

    At 2:00pm to 2:30pm, Tuesday 22nd May

  • Agile Business Development

    by Sarah Allen

    Test-driven development is mom-and-apple-pie to Rubyists, but knowing that a product will work goes well beyond bug-free code. How do you catch a design flaw early when all your tests are green? We'll look at some techniques for vetting your go-to-market strategy and other things you should be doing *before* you start writing code.

    At 2:45pm to 3:15pm, Tuesday 22nd May

  • Open (Source) Wounds

    by Jim Remsik

    This talk will seek to raise recognition in our community to the fact that there are real people behind Open Source Software. We'll analyze the black box retrieved from the wreckage of well-known community disagreements. Suggest how to move the conversation forward as well as discuss tools and techniques for diffusing potentially explosive situations.

    At 3:15pm to 3:45pm, Tuesday 22nd May

    by Christian Doten

    At 3:45pm to 4:15pm, Tuesday 22nd May

  • Lightning talks

    At 4:30pm to 5:30pm, Tuesday 22nd May
