If you would like to learn more about Crystal and Single Page Applications, this meetup is for you!

Concurrency in Crystal

Crystal is a Ruby inspired language that offers type safety and a minimal runtime. In this talk we'll look into Crystal's concurrency model, Communicating Sequential Processes, and how it shapes the way we write concurrent applications.

How to stop worrying, love the SPA and appreciate Rails

Some people love them, some people hate them, but single page applications are here to stay, if not take over. Michael suggests there may be greater SPA platform potential to Rails than you think.

Using software engineering practices to improve engineering management

As an engineering manager, your responsibility is not to build features, but to build systems to support the people building the features. This talk will give some tips on using familiar tools and techniques from your time as a software engineer to help make management easier and more systematic.
