@ysb33r I think I'm going to submit a jruby-gradle oriented talk proposal to JavaOne

do it
or if you want to broaden scope you could also include ruby-maven with help from @mkristian
not sure if this will end up in my review track but broader scope is always better... "Building JVM Applications with Ruby Tools"

broader scope is better? no wonder I was disappointed with the tech content last year :/
I figure the same jruby-gradle content would fit jrubyconf.eu maybe
though that's a categorically ruby audience

broader scope is better when we have to fit 250 proposals into 30 slots

if you have a talk on jruby-gradle and someone else has a talk on building JVM apps with other languages, the latter would get picked
for example

I'll have to think more about what content might best pander to the javaone audience :)
since everybody clearly hates JRuby based on the scriptbowl :P

it's hard... JavaOne is full of Java people
build tools might be a big win though, since obviously Gradle has done well among people who might never use Groovy

my 2c - If you want to spin something, then saying how you can convert your AWESOME ruby app into a JVM-based app using the jruby-gradle. AsciidoctorJ is a primary example of how something that essentially a Ruby app has become a very popular tool on the JVM. Most people who use it asis or via Gradle will not ever realise it is written in Ruby (unless they hit a bad stacktrace).
