May Blogging Contest

Well, it’s that time again. We’ve got all the entries in for the April Blogging Contest, and another set of books to give away for May. Since this month is the target for the JRuby 1.0 release, I wanted to make sure this month’s contest reflected that. With that in mind, here’s the theme:

How have you used JRuby in integrate Ruby into a Java environment?

Write a blog post about this theme, and put a link to it in the comment section below before June 1st, and Ola Bini, Jason Gilmore, and I will go through the entries to determine a winner. As always, the winning entry will get three Apress books of their choice—Apress will happily ship real books, or provide you with pdfs (when eBooks are available for your selected title).

We’re entering the home stretch on the contest now, with 9 books given away for January, February, and March and 3 more hanging in the ballance for April. I think the contestants so far have produce a lot of great, thought-provoking articles, and I’m looking forward to the next two months. Thanks again to Apress for making this contest possible, and thanks to those of you who’ve participated for all the great articles.

To those of you who are going to enter this month, good luck!

Well, I hope this isn't cheating since this is a blog entry from a week ago, but here's one to get things started.

Getting into the "early by a few days" groove, here's my attempt to get a head start on the pack. Expect more to follow...
