#rbxday Blog Posts

Shane Becker 05 August 2011

With just a few hours left in the first #rbxday, I wanted to share a few blog posts that people have written for today. It seems like lots of people are having lots of fun all while using Rubinius. That’s what really matters.

And I think Andrew W. K. would probably be proud of that.

Onto the blog posts...

Nathan Engdahl on the Blue Box Group blog writes:

What is Rubinius you ask? Quite simply, it’s an alternative implementation of Ruby, written in Ruby, designed for modern web developers. It provides tools for simpler development of web applications. Rubinius strives for a particularly fast and optimized implementation, ensuring applications run at peak efficiency.

Chris White compares bytecode from MRI, JRuby and Rubinius:

Many developers don’t think too much about what’s going on behind the scenes when they run their Ruby code. That’s the beauty of it, easy to write code that’s given to Ruby and run for the developer. At some point the developer may wonder, what’s REALLY going on behind the scenes. How is it that something meant to run Ruby can host so many other languages? The answer lies in what’s known as a VM, or Virtual Machine.

Finally, there’s the Rubysfera blog that’s not written in a language that I can read. So, I’ll just assume that they’re talking about Chocolate Rubinius Cake and how to bake it. ;)

Rubiniusa (implementacji Rubiego, napisanej w Rubym) nikomu chyba przedstawiać nie trzeba. Obecnie obsługiwana jest wersja języka 1.8.7, a niektóre benchmarki pokazują, że Rubinius w tej wersji może osiągać szybkość porównywalną z JRuby. Benchmarki, benchmarkami, najciekawsza jest możliwość zajrzenia do implementacji języka w Rubym.

Seriously though, I have no idea what that post says. If you do, please let me know.

There’s still time. Go test your app running on Rubinius. Tweet about it. Use the hashtag #rbxday, so we notice you and re-share your tweet. If there are bugs, please create an issue on Github. Give us any other feedback you want on the rbxday.rubini.us website.
