Last year, around this time, we were thrilled to be presenting at JRubyConf EU 2014 and as luck would have it: JRubyConf EU is back, and so is Lookout! Lookout engineer R. Tyler Croy will be presenting a talk on JRuby/Gradle at this year’s conference.
Tyler’s talk “JRuby/Gradle: Bringing Java powertools to Ruby” will be the second session of the day, and according to the abstract:
This talk will introduce the JRuby/Gradle project, an effort to combine the very best in Java tooling with the Ruby world, providing top-notch integration for JRuby devs. During the talk we will cover the motivations of the jruby-gradle project and describe how it helps bridge the gap between Java and Ruby. By combining the flexibility of JRuby with the power of Gradle, we can breathe new life into JRuby, opening it up to an even broader audience than before.
Another special part of this year’s JRubyConf EU is that there will be a few of Lookout’s Europe-based hackers, including frequent JRuby contributor Christian Meier, in attendance. JRuby users may recognize his name, as he has built some of the most common tools of every JRuby toolchain, such as jbundler.
JRubyConf EU will be held as part of Eurucamp on July 31st in Potsdam, southwest of Berlin. Please join us to talk about Ruby, JRuby, Lookout, mobile security and scalable systems!
