After 3.5 days of RailsConf, you’re probably thinking about the next steps to take. Some of those steps may involve testing out or deploying your apps on JRuby. In this session, the four JRuby devs at the conference, along with any current JRuby users that are available, will be present for an open Q/A discussion. Bring your apps, bring your concerns, bring your questions about JRuby and the future of Ruby on the JVM. They can be about Rails, or about any other aspect of JRuby app development. We’ll try answer them all, and demo whatever we can.
