High Performance Ruby: Threading Versus Evented 4.07 http://spkr8.com/t/8313


Great developers are on a constant quest for knowledge, and knowledge begins with questions. “Do I need to learn about EventMachine or node.js? Can I use threads? What is so good or bad about threading in Ruby 1.8, Ruby 1.9, JRuby and Rubinius 2.0? What choices do I need to make, how different does my code look, and how do I do testing?”

Dr. Nic Williams has approached many developers with these questions. He even hosted EM RubyConf during RailsConf 2011 in order to gather the brightest minds in the Ruby community. Join Dr. Nic as he shares answers gathered during this recent quest for knowledge.

Timely talk, I think that everyone should take a look at jruby, and do what they can to leave themselves open to deploying on the very powerful and well understood java stack.

Also, event machine machine is worth looking into as it can be a good tool for certain projects.
