A Very Fast Ruby on the JVM
Thursday 19th September 7:00pm at The Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab)
This month we’re going deep down into the interpreter with a talk from Chris Seaton on how he’s used Truffle, AST parsing and type specialisation to write a new high-performance Ruby implementation that benchmarks faster than JRuby.
Chris is a PhD student at the University of Manchester, where his researching programming languages and irregular parallelism. He is also a member of the Virtual Machine research group at Oracle Labs, where he works on implementing programming languages using the next generation of Java Virtual Machine.
