Talkin' with Charlie and Tom, the JRuby Guys

Last week, at the end of JavaOne day one, I was able to grab the JRuby dynamic duo for a podcast.  Tom Enebo and Charlie Nutter turned out to be really nice guys, must be their midwestern roots, and were a pleasure to talk to (I also learned a lot :). 

My interview with Tom and Charlie (14:19)  Listen (Mp3)   Listen (ogg)


Charlie Nutter and Tom Enebo -- the JRuby dyanmic duo (and wearing the shirts to prove it).

Some of the topics we tackle:

  • A historical background, Ruby, then Rails, then JRuby.
  • What the guys were doing pre-Sun and how Tim Bray lured them to the fiery orb.
  • Three licenses is better than one (GPL, CPL, LGPL)
  • How JRuby is working with GlassFish and NetBeans.
  • The DaVinci machine project, jMaki and what ever happened to AJAX?
  • Might we see a JPerl?
  • Looking to get more involved with MySQL
Pau for now...

 

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
