Join us in the virtual world of Second Life and learn about JRuby! Charles O. Nutter of JRuby fame will tell us what JRuby is all about. JRuby is an 100% pure-Java implementation of the Ruby programming language. The Rubyists of Second Life hold regular meetings at the Rubyists of Second Life HQ (courtesy of Joi Ito), Kula 3, coordinates (198, 211, 21) on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at 6:00 PM SL time ( prevailing Pacific time ) More SL / RoSL info and links: Second Life http://secondlife.com About Second Life: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Life RoSL Web Site: http://rosl.iandb.net/ Forum: http://forums.secondcitizen.com/ ( look under Group Forums ) RubyForge: http://rubyforge.org/projects/rubyists-sl/ Imageboard: http://jeschan.ath.cx:6528/jeschan/ ( /rosl/ ) RoSL SLurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Kula%203/198/211/21/ So how do I attend the RoSL meeting? ( email email@example.com if you need help getting to the meeting ) 0 - If you've never used SL before, allow at least an hour before the meeting to get setup 1 - verify your equipment meets the SL system requirements http://secondlife.com/corporate/sysreqs.php Warning - there is a large ( > 20 MB ) client download involved, SL is not browser based. 2 - create an SL account and an avatar. Basic membership is currently free 3 - learn how to operate in SL by taking the guided tutorial at Orientation Island 4 - once established in SL, click Search, then Groups. Enter "ruby" as the search text You will then see "Rubyists of Second Life" in the list, click on it, then Join 5 - "Teleport" to the meeting area. The easiest way is to use the SLurl listed above. When logged into SL: o open the SLurl link page in your browser, it will show a "Teleport Now" option. o click Teleport Now, causing the Map to open in the SL client, pointed at RoSL HQ. o click your heels twice, then hit the Map's Teleport button. Alternatively, on the day of the meeting, inside SL: o hit the Search button o choose the Events tab o change the Category pick-list to "Discussion" o click Search in the Search dialog, you should then see an entry for Rubyists of SL o click on the Rubyists of SL entry, more detail will appear. o click your heels twice, then hit the Teleport button See you there!

To anyone that couldn't make this...you missed an amazing experience and presentation. I never used Second Life and didn't know much about JRuby prior to that meeting so it was a double whammy for me. But don't get too depressed...I made a write-up! Plenty of outbound links, images, and talk so here ya go, and don't forget to Digg if you're feeling it =) http://www.larrytheliquid.com/2006/10/29/jruby-of-...
