The Script Bowl

Posted by rags on May 7, 2008 at 11:49 AM PDT

I just moderated a panel with the scripting gurus. Guillaume LaForge of Groovy, Charles Nutter of JRuby, Frank Wierzbicki of Jython and Jorge Ortiz representing Scala.

The distinguished panel of judges were Roberto Chinnici, Ola Bini and Carol McDonald and was moderated by me.

It was a fun and interactive session and I got some good feedback from the attendees.

The attendees voted real-time for the best performance ala Idol style via SMS and the results are here.

Speakers A, B, C and D are Groovy, JRuby, Jython and Scala
respectively.

Lots of real cool demos and insights into the language. I am impressed by the conciseness and power of the languages. Lots of fun!

Thanks to Jerry Tao for the voting hardware and software.
