Russ Olsen 3.85
Ever wonder how it all works? How Matz sat down with nothing but a C compiler and an editor and ended up with Ruby? How the JRuby guys are making the JVM livable again? In this talk, Russ Olsen will take you on a quick tour of the Ruby 1.9 C implementation as well as the Java behind JRuby. During this talk Russ will demo how to use both gdb and Eclipse to watch the gears and cogs spinning as your Ruby program runs.
