If you didn't know that, the title tells it all. Of course, that's old news.
I haven't really been able to blog as much as I wish I could have, lately. There are reasons for this, of course. Two very exciting reasons, in fact. If everything pans out, I will be able to write about it in 2 to 3 weeks time.
In other news, we are gearing up for another JRuby release. This one will be a biggie. Many nice things will be in place, and it will set the record for both new features and bug fixes. I think no one will be disappointed by it, actually.
I have a few presentations lined up too. The closest to now will be in exactly two weeks. I will speak at the Academic Computer Science Festival in Craków, Poland. If you're somewhere close, by all means offer to show me the city. =) I will land March 9:th and fly out again March 11:th. My presentation will be at 17:00 March 10:th, CET. If you would like more information, it can be found at the festivals homepage, here. The presentation will be in English (since I don't speak Polish, obviously), and it will be slightly more technical than the usual JRuby presentations. There will probably be some detail about our runtime, interpreter, parser and lexer, and hopefully I'll get some info in about our YARV and Java bytecode compiler efforts. This will be very exciting to talk about, I'm kinda salivating just thinking about it. =)
Another, more long term presentation, has just been decided. I will attend TheServerSide Java Symposium Europe, in Barcelona, from June 27:th to June 29:th, and talk about JRuby from the perspective of a Java developer, and what it can do for you. Hopefully I will have time to see the city too.
I will update with more information when possible.
