Would you like to discover the newly released RSpec 3? Perhaps you fancy a deep dive into automated deployment from Scratch? Then join the London Ruby User group this month with talks from Tom Stuart & John Maxwell.
RSpec 3 has just been released, and it's come a long way since version 1.
If you've had problems with RSpec in the past, now is a great time to revisit it — it's become much cleaner, simpler and more focused.
I'll give a quick overview of the main things that have changed over the years, and if there's time, I'll explain a few of the new features in version 3.
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.
The first principle of the Agile Manifesto says “Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software”, yet too often this is not the reality.
Delivery is one of the most disruptive parts of the software development process for developers, but can be easy to automate, empowering the iterative process.
This talk is a manifesto for how to go from scratch to automated deployment, with a few tales from the trenches of mistakes made along the way.
I am a Software Engineer, specialising in Ruby, Go, Scala, Node and Lua based web development, with a heavy sprinkling of DevOps on the side. I work for Board Intelligence as their Lead Developer.
A short talk about my experience starting out as a professional developer. The focus of this talk will be about a weekly event through which I received a huge amount of support called Codebar. At Codebar programming skills are taught for free to people under-represented in the tech industry.
Rosa is a developer at Government Digital Service and an organiser of the Code Bar.
