The power of enterprise Java is now available through the expressiveness of Ruby. More and more projects are suited to new technologies and frameworks such as Ruby on Rails. Using TorqueBox, a team’s members can leverage their knowledge, investments, skills, and trust in Java while exploring the cutting edge of new development models.
TorqueBox supports any Rack-based web framework, including Ruby on Rails and Sinatra. Rubyists now get high-performance Java services like HornetQ, Infinispan, and Quartz using familiar idioms and patterns. In this session, Bob McWhirter will cover general Ruby web-framework support and introduce the use of enterprise JBoss services with only a few lines of Ruby.
As a core member of the TorqueBox team at Red Hat, Toby Crawley helps drive the integration of Java and Ruby. Toby joined Red Hat in 2010, initially working on cloud technologies using Ruby before moving to work on TorqueBox full-time.
Prior to joining Red Hat, Toby served as a freelance consultant, where he spent over three years developing Ruby applications. He also worked at Netscape on their proxy server product in the distant past. He is one of the organizers of the Asheville Ruby users group.
