    About the report

    The current visit by Charles of Moscow was connected with his participation in the RubyRussia conference (see the interview with him on Habré ). The efforts that Andrei Kogun put into practice allowed the participants of to meet with Charles.

    Andrei opens the meeting. A handshake with a speaker that has already become traditional. In the first half of the meeting, Charles talked about the current state of dynamic languages ​​in the JVM : comparing static and dynamic languages, the place of JRuby among various programming languages, the characteristics of JRuby properties , test results, the future of dynamic languages.

    In the second half there was a practical demonstration of examples illustrating the previously shown presentation. Very interesting questions from the listeners were asked both during the performance, during the break and after the meeting: about the demand for the product and the number of JRuby developers , comparison of the performance of the Ruby language implementations , rationality and features of the transition to JRuby with Jython (by IvanPonomarev ) and so on. . The questions were liked by both the audience and Charles . You can view the presentation of the report here (a jugmsk account has been created on SpeakerDeck
