Welcome to a new meetup!
This is for anyone working with or interested in Ruby/Ruby on Rails. Feel free to join us on Wednesday, March 20th, at Teknologihuset, starting 18:00.
# Introduction to TruffleRuby
TruffleRuby is a new implementation of Ruby from Oracle Labs. It's designed to run real Ruby code faster than other implementations of Ruby, and to give you powerful new tools for managing and debugging your Ruby application.
We'll show you why we're building TruffleRuby, a little bit about how it works, and what it achieves for Ruby users today.
About Chris Seaton
# What is Ruby/Ruby on Rails?
Ruby (https://www.ruby-lang.org) is a dynamic and open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. It has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and fun to write. Ruby ranks among the top ten, largely due to the popularity of Ruby on Rails.
Ruby on Rails (http://rubyonrails.org) is a web framework that includes everything you need to build fantastic applications. Some of the applications that were built with Rails are: Basecamp, GitHub, Shopify, Airbnb.
We will kick off with some pizza, drinks and networking.
Chris Seaton will present TruffelRuby.
Thanks to Oracle Norway for sponsoring this Meetup with Chris Seaton, the venue and food.
See you there!
