The August meeting of the London Ruby User Group will be on Monday the 9th of August, featuring talks and discussion on Ruby, Rails, Cramp and more... It's a great space with plenty of room for the group. Please don't forget to register to let Skills Matter know you are coming.
Tim and Chris have been steadily improving how they go about things, getting better at BDD and Scrum, and starting to do a bit of Domain Driven Design. They're going to talk about how they got on, focusing in equal parts on refactoring legacy code bases, improving test coverage, improving processes, and how they convinced stakeholders.
Chris O'Sullivan is the CTO and co-founder of legal marketplace Lexoo. He has been developing websites and apps for more than 10 years - with companies such as Forward Partners, Aegis Media, and the BBC. He loves playing board games and drinking cocktails - ideally at the same time.
Tim Cowlishaw is a 27 year old London based developer, interested in lots of things, one of which is writing computer software (mostly for the web), and happily the good folk at Harmonypark are willing to pay me to do this.
Tom Crinson will talk about Cramp and some of the other technologies he's used in his HTML5 Bomberman clone to cope with hundreds of simultaneous players on ittybittyboom.com. Cramp is an asynchronous event driven ruby based framework to write succinct, clear code to deal with hundreds or thousands of tcp connections at once.
Tom Crinson, is a Ruby on Rails developer and budding photography nerd who likes to mess around with new technologies
