Explorng jRuby

By November 5, 2013

Follow me on:

I've done it, I sold my Macbook Pro and bought a Surface Pro 2.  Thus far, it's been great, but now it's time to get busy with Ruby.  I've had mixed experiences with Ruby on Windows in the past and this time I thought I'd give jRuby a go.

JRuby, if you don't know, is a Ruby implementation on the Java runtime environment.  Not only does it just run Ruby code, but it also integrates with Java fully, allowing you to use the very large and mature Java codebase and libraries.  And, not only that, but those libraries can in turn use your Ruby code.  It's a full integration into the Java environment.

So watch this space for jRuby content in the coming days!
