LRUG: January 2015 Meetup

Monday, 12th January in London

This meetup was organised by LRUG: London Ruby User Group in January 2015


Join the London Ruby User Group for their first meetup of 2015, kicking the year off with three excellent talks by Robbie Clutton, Joel Chippindale & Tom Cartwright!

Who’s afraid of database views?

Many Rails codebases I look at work hard to put all logic into the application source code, using the database only a dumb store.

But, there are circumstances where it makes sense to leverage features of a database and in this talk I'll cover one of those features in Views.

I'll walk through examples of why you might want logic in two places, how views compare to caching for performance considerations, using views as a facade on legacy tables and how to test views alongside your application.

Telling stories through your commits

In this talk we'll look at some of the ways that you can improve how you develop code and communicate with your team through your commits.

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.

PeerConnect all the things

WebRTC is an exciting technology currently in, or coming soon to a browser near you. In this talk I will explain what it is, how it works and how to setup some ruby services to support a WebRTC-based application.

Tom Cartwright

Superlative! Dangling modifier. Also Lead Dev @ Keepmebooked
