Meet up

London Ruby - December

Monday, 10th December in London

This meetup was organised by LRUG: London Ruby User Group in December 2012


This month, London Ruby User Group (LRUG) have talks on three topics. Claudio Ortolina and Joel Chippindale will deliver two lightning talks followed by an extended talk by Fredrrick Cheung.

Hermes, add wings to Ruby and Javascript development

A Vim/Tmux development environment to easily work with Ruby and Javascript.

Claudio Ortolina

Claudio is a software engineer and Head of Elixir at Erlang Solutions Ltd, where he works as a consultant and trainer.

My tests run faster than your tests

An introduction to Zeus ( and the approach it takes for making rails tests run lightning fast.

Joel Chippindale

Joel Chippindale is the CTO at Unmade, a global fashion software company offering delightful customisation experiences that power Fashion Driven by Demand. He has been building effective software teams for over a decade and feels lucky to be in a role that mostly involves saying ‘yes’ to people when they inevitably think of better ways of doing things than he possibly could.

Going Native

There have been many talks that show how to take the first steps in writing a ruby C extension. This isn't one of them. I propose instead to give an overview of different ways of extending ruby and show what each approach brings to the table. I intend to cover 'classic' C extensions, RubyInline and FFI across a range of ruby implementations.

Frederick Cheung

I'm Frederick Cheung, a UK based rails developer (fglc2 on twitter). I'm the CTO at dressipi, where we're revolutionising the way women shop for clothes. In the past I've written Mac desktop software, iOS apps and contributed to rails itself.

Who's coming?
