Arun Pushes the Edge of the JRuby/GlassFish Envelope
By divas on Sep 17, 2007
Last week, Arun Gupta paid a visit to the NetBeans Ruby writers. It was great to finally meet this dynamo in person and find out what a nice guy he is. When we first started writing about NetBeans Ruby, we used Arun's blog Miles to Go as one of our resources to quickly learn about the technology. Arun tells us that the blog's name has a double meaning: he is both an avid runner and he feels like he has a lot to learn in his job.
In addition to Ruby/JRuby and GlassFish, Arun blogs on a variety of topics, including jMaki, web services, WSIT, Ajax, and Web 2.0. Arun somehow manages to be one of the first to write about how to use emerging technologies, so we like to keep an eye on his blog to find out what we will be writing about in the future. For example, last Friday, he blogged about a new GlassFish gem for Rails. We also like to follow his popular "Tip of the Day" entries. You will often see his information folded into our tutorials. Arun seems to really understand his audience's information needs and he has been very helpful by providing good suggestions as to what to include in our tutorials.
