In this meetup we will have number of interesting talks on microservices, rails development and ruby apps.
How we moved from a huge Rails monolith to small microservices - the how and the why
Andy White is a passionate developer come podcast presenter and producer who loves talking in front of huge audiences. His first love is programming - currently using Ruby and Ruby on Rails as well as a little PHP. To get out more he also trains and coaches individuals and businesses on how to make their own podcasts. In addition to this he’s an armchair naturalist, armchair astronomer, inventor and closet introvert. His business is Wire World Media, which he runs from Brighton with a dedicated core team of professionals and specialist partners. He lives by the sea in Brighton, UK.
After working as a Flash developer and team lead for 10 years I have switched to become a Ruby on Rails developer to build our new product, Primed. This is the talk I would like to have heard a year ago when I was beginning that journey.
Jake started working as a web generalist in 2002 before specialising in Flash over the following decade. He was lead developer at digital advertising agencies Dare Digital and Skive, where he headed up the team of six, building online casual games, interactive experiences, and (there's no point denying it now) Flash microsites and banners. He is now CTO and developer at Team Prime where he is building their new careers service, Primed.
Recruitment is a pain, isn't it? Does it have to be this way? We say 'no' and we want to show you why. Primed.is a web application to tackle common recruitment problems and we can't wait to tell you all about it.
Researcher for Team Prime and Product person for Primed.is. Having worked in recruitment for a few years, I am hugely frustrated by the poor practices, inefficiencies and general time wasting in recruitment so I'm thrilled to be part of a project that is addressing these issues. Used to be a Lawyer and then became a Recruiter - I must like being disliked! Enjoying (trying) to learn code in my spare time and (occasionally) doing stand-up comedy. Love Tory bashing.
This talk is going to present the tool and its capabilities, and then explore how it can be used by ruby developers. Hopefully it will be useful to you in the everyday life as a developer, or just spark some interesting conversations.
Direnv is a language-agnostic environment switching tool that I wrote a 5 years ago and still use every day.
Just another geek that like to try things out. Works at Pusher (http://pusher.com) on the pubsub messaging backend.
