Topic

We're going to try to get 2 presentations going for March. An beginner level presentation and an intermediate/advanced level presentation.

Beginner Level Presentation

"Intro to Ruby" - TBD

Topic is officially TBD, but we will be prepared to provide a 6 month "curriculum" at the meetup.

Advanced Level Presentation

JRuby-Complete - Matt Fletcher

One of JRuby's unrecognized strengths is that it can be easily built into a single jar file named jruby-complete. This makes distributing an entire Ruby runtime trivial--Ruby can be brought, as one file, to any platform that runs the JVM. In this talk, Matt will discuss not only how to run Ruby programs via java and jruby-complete, but also how to roll both JRuby and an entire Ruby application into one file.
