Ruby has been a growing blip on my radar for a while. In this show I describe my first real production Ruby application at work — and it’s small enough to talk about a few details. I cover how we use Ruby to automate some interactions with Subversion and Maven. I’ve done some Rails stuff too, but that’s a whole different topic. Conclusion: Ruby should be something you use to complement Java. If you want a Ruby vs. Java fight, you won’t find it here.

Some great resources metioned in the pocast are Programming Ruby and Agile Web Development with Rails.
