At this month's LRUG meetup we have talks from everyday cryptography to creating fun things on Amazon Echo with Ruby to Double Dispatch pattern. Don't miss it!
Check out this talk on creating something fun on Amazon Echo using Ruby by Cookpad's Miles Woodroffe!
Voice interfaces open up so many interesting possibilities and in this talk Miles'll show you how to very quickly build and deploy a useful "skill" with Ruby, and at the same time, make sure you hopefully don't burn the dinner.
Miles heads up technology at Cookpad Ltd where the mission is simple - to make everyday cooking fun. Now based in Bristol, UK after spending 10 years at various startups in San Francisco and then the last 7 years at Cookpad in Tokyo, Japan, he’s been coding with Ruby since 2007. Previously a sound engineer, Miles toured the world in the 90’s, being fortunate to work with some of the biggest artists of the times
The story about how ideas from other languages can help us write simple, elegant Ruby code.
In this presentation we will look at a Double Dispatch pattern, Excel(spreadsheet) injection, how they go together and why fighting (accidental) code complexity matters.
