Java, JRuby, and Netbeans Talks!

We had our first OSUM meetup for the semester, and it went very well. With plenty of planning and advance notice this time, combined with the power of Facebook and osum.sun.com, we had nearly a dozen members come to this meeting. At this rate we might double each meeting. Minutes will be posted on www.iowaosum.com  after I get them processed and finished.

Our talks were actually really awesome today - I feel like I could be a nice professor or lecturer. First I demonstrated Java using the Sun Java Tutorial in the NetBeans IDE. Then I gave a talk about Netbeans, and finally concluded with a demonstration of the mix of my two favorite languages (Java and Ruby) in JRuby. I demonstrated how to make a temperature converter in JRuby, which everyone really seemed to appreciate.
