Why Jruby

An intermediate talk proposed by Chris Ochs

Thought it would be fun to share my experiences using jruby at one of the larger social game companies. Lots of useful info on what worked, what was problematic, why you should or should not use jruby and when. Real world data on how jruby/rails performs at hundreds of millions of requests per day. Why having a real memory model with real threading can matter. And of course a bit of ranting about all of the threading bugs that supposedly never existed in rails:)
