Dynamic Language Runtime On Java Platform* (*or how JRuby works)

In this talk, we take a deep look at what happens inside the runtimes for dynamic languages. Taking JRuby as an example, we walk through code samples, take a look at the runtime execution pipeline to see how Ruby source code is transformed that JVM could execute it efficiently. After the talk, participants gain fundamental knowledge of how dynamic runtimes work in general and fill the gap between source code and what happens underneath.
