LRUG March Meetup

Monday, 11th March at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by LRUG: London Ruby User Group in March 2019

Come join this months LRUG to discover how to get the most from your RSpec, what needs to change about tech recruitment and more!

RSpec - Level Up

You've been using RSpec for a while, you know how to write tests, but you’re not sure you're getting the most from it. This is a quick run through of some of the lesser known, more advanced features of RSpec.

Jon Rowe

RSpec Core Developer.

Representations count

In your grandparents’ attic you discover a mysterious old computer. You boot it up and discover it runs Ruby, but doesn’t support negative numbers! How can you implement negative numbers in an elegant way? We’ll explore two solutions and discover how important it is to pick the right representation.

Tom Stuart

Tom is a computer scientist and programmer. He has lectured on optimising compilers at the University of Cambridge, co-organises the Ruby Manor conference, and is a member of the London Ruby User Group.

Education, Recruitment and Technology: What needs to change?

The traditional education system is letting down the next generation by not preparing them for the future of work. Edify is working to change this whilst planning to disrupt the public sector through the innovation of digital policy.
