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.
I have decided to become an extrovert.
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 184.108.40.206 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.
JRuby guy, JVM guy
