"My goal with my talks at JavaOne
is to teach what is happening at the JVM level and below so people understand better where we are going" explains Charles Nutter, Jruby project lead.
In this interview, Charles shared the JRuby features he presented at the JVM Language Summit. They include foreign function interface (FFI), IO layer, character transcoding, regular expressions, compilers, coroutines, and more.
At JavaOne, he will be presenting:
The Java Native Runtime (JNR) is a high-speed foreign function interface (FFI) for calling native code from Java without ever writing a line of C. Based on the success of JNR, JDK Enhancement Proposal (JEP) 191 will bring FFI to OpenJDK as an internal API.
In this panel discussion, these emerging languages are portrayed by their respective champions, who explain how they may help your everyday life as a Java developer.
In this contest, languages that run on the JVM, represented by their respective language experts, battle for most popular language status by showing off their new features. Audience members will also vote on a language that should not return in 2015. Returning from 2013 are language gurus representing Clojure, Groovy, JRuby, and Scala.
