[Video 387] Tom Enebo, Charles Nutter: JRuby 9000 Is Out; Now What?

JRuby is one of the most interesting and famous implementations of Ruby, for several reasons: It runs on the JVM, it runs really quickly, it interacts with Java libraries and objects, it integrates with the entire Java ecosystem of tools, and it solves the concurrency problems that the standard (MRI) interpreter has.  Recently, the JRuby team released a version that is compatible with Ruby 2.2, which raises the question — what does the future hold for JRuby?  What are the plans on the Ruby front, and the JVM front?  In this talk, JRuby developers Charles Nutter and Tom Enebo describe the current state of affairs, and where we’re headed in the JRuby world.
