Meet up

Learning to Code, How to win developers and Deprecating ActiveResource

Monday, 12th May at Skills Matter, London

This meetup was organised by LRUG: London Ruby User Group in May 2014


Deprecating ActiveResource: Alternative Approaches for Internal Rails Services

The allure of such a simple interface to a network service is undeniable, but the downsides not nearly as obvious. Many have built Rails apps relying on ActiveResource only to feel significant unforeseen pain down the line.

This talk provides a case study of an early adopter of ActiveResource during the Rails 1.2 era, the pain that it led to, and the eventual replacement of ActiveResource with a bespoke private gem that provides a similar, but more robust interface.

How to win developers and influence designers

In 1936, Dale Carnegie wrote the book “How to win friends and influence people." You may have heard of it. But what can this book, and others, teach us about working as part of a software team today? Quite a lot, actually.
