If you are interested in the Truffle backend in JRuby, these videos explain
how it all works. It's less theory, and more practical explanation about
writing a language using Truffle. Maybe you'd like to write your own
Truffle language! A lot of the concepts explained in the video are used
almost exactly the same in Ruby.

You don't need any expert knowledge of VMs or compilers to understand them.
