My good friend Andy Glover interviewed me for a pod-cast for the Java World site recently, and it has magically appeared. Here is the site blurbage:
Neal Ford and Andrew Glover are both well respected Java developers, as well as big fans of Ruby. Neal FordIn this in-depth discussion, Ford talks about why he believes Ruby is the most powerful language you could be paid to program with today, and explains the particular benefits of programming with JRuby. Ford also reveals why he believes Java developers will continue to migrate to languages other than Java, even as many continue to call the Java platform home. This is an essential, engaging discussion for those interested in learning more about JRuby and the trend toward what Ford calls polyglot programming.
It was a lively conversation, and Andy asked me about lots of stuff I've been thinking about a lot lately. As in all good conversations, the time flew by, and before I knew it, the guy recording it was shutting us down.
