About everyone has heard JRuby is fast, but how fast is that?
This talk is about giving you a concrete idea of it, with realistic use-cases of popular libraries, efficient programming contests solutions and day-to-day tasks from reading a file to analyzing a web app. There will be a comparison with other Ruby implementations as well as with various languages and VMs, highlighting pros and cons of the JVM.
