Write Better Tests With Property Based Testing

In this talk I'll show you how to apply the techniques of property-based testing to use randomly-generated data to drive out more bugs with fewer tests. I'll demonstrate these techniques using the new Hypothesis for Ruby library which is based on the popular Hypothesis Python library.

CSS Shapes: Upgrade Your Page Layouts

This talk will cover some of that history in an attempt to help us all learn from it. You'll also learn some cool new ways CSS can help you stand out, after which you will be armed with practical help to use these techniques, the knowledge of when to use them (and when not to), and arguments to help convince your colleagues of your great new ideas.
