JRuby and Sun

September 7th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

I suspected this was coming when Charles Nutter started posting about NetBeans but today it became official: the JRuby guys are now employees of Sun! It’s been clear for a while now that Sun is really embracing dynamic languages (JavaOne was widely considered “the one about scripting“) but this is quite a step. Earlier, I talked about Java and Rails and this move by Sun further cements this stance in my mind. I suspect this will have some interesting implications on the enterprise impasse

Anyway, congratulations to Charles (I’ll repeat my plea to get some freakin sleep already) and Tom - best of luck you guys! I just hope you remember us little people

    Charles is going to speak at the Twin Cities Code Camp about JRuby – I’d love it if you could come and talk about AJAX…or, really, anything that you want to talk about (so long as it’s code-related :) ). Details about the event can be found at:
