Man, I just love win32 sometimes: "If the function succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS." Naturally.
The @PayPal numbers for their Java to Node move are absurd. A JVM app doing 1.8 pages/s isn't slow...it's broken. https://www.paypal-engineering.com/2013/11/22/node-js-at-paypal/ …
We are living in the golden age of animated gifs, or as I like to call it, the second silent era of film.
I find Big Bang Theory to be stupid and offensive. It's the blackface of intellectuals.
Probably 75% of the 850 attendees at RubyConf are here for the *first time*. Don't listen to FUD about Ruby "dying".
Maven 3.3.1 is out with support for language extensions...so you can now write pom.xml as a nice Ruby DSL: https://github.com/jruby/jruby/blob/master/pom.rb …
As of today, JRuby's new JIT finally compiles all Ruby 2.2 language features (interp was 100% a few months back). 9k is close!
The best code I've ever written grew out of the worst, most broken, most experimental one-off code I'd written. Code evolution is powerful.
It makes me sad that Solaris was a much better OS, but it floundered around in closed source for years with an archaic userland.
It's depressing how many times a performance problem comes down to using Java 5 iteration on a collection. So many Iterator objects.
There's a small number of JRuby contributors out there disappointed that we never did a 18.104.22.168 release.
Whenever it comes time for me to be done with JRuby, I would love to spend some years helping developing countries raise tech-saavy kids.
We considered calling the next JRuby release 0.118.999.88199.9119.725.3 but instead it will be 9.1.1.
Four startup visits. Talked JVM, JRuby, GC, Clojure, Ruby, heap analysis, profiling, devops, business strategy. Now at Toit brewery pub.
If you've got a JRuby 9k issue blocking you and it's not in this list, now's the time to start making noise: https://github.com/jruby/jruby/milestones/JRuby%22.214.171.124 …
JRuby guy, JVM guy
