It was interesting to be at the Sun Open Communities Forum and meet people I used to work with (or even teach to) as back in time as in 1996.
It was also interesting to have the opportunity to introduce Ruby and Ruby on Rails to Java developers and show them how they could use it from the familiar JVM.
As usual, I uploaded to slideshare the slides I used in my presentation.
The layout might be a bit enterprisey for my standards, but I was representing my company, so I used the company template. Anyway, the presentation is under Creative Commons, so feel free to use it in any way you can imagine, as long as you respect the “non commercial attribution share alike” license.

I’ve been invited to speak about JRuby on Rails at the Sun Open Communities Forum. This event is the evolution of the former editions of OpenJavaDay/OpenSolarisDay, revamped to include more Open Source communities.
Apart from the predictable “all-things-java” sessions, this year there are some interesting labs and talks about MySQL Scalability, REST, AJAX, the cloud, development frameworks and different languages running on the JVM.
Most of the talks, including mine, will be delivered in Spanish, but there will be some in English too.
My session will be
JRuby on Rails. Ruby on Rails on the JVM
And the excerpt I’ve sent for the talk goes something like this
Ruby is a dynamic programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. Ruby on Rails is a web framework optimized for programmer happiness and sustainable productivity. The JVM is one of the world’s most heavily-optimized pieces of software. The combination of these three elements provides a superb platform for building web applications.
In my session I will explain the highlights of Ruby, how Ruby on Rails has changed the rules of web development, and how JRuby allows for the integration of Ruby (on Rails) and Java.
Inscription is free and if you cannot attend, there will be live streaming as well. Notice you also have to inscribe (checking the “Lo seguiré por internet” radio button) if you want to watch the streaming.
