Meet up

The invisible cost of code and AWS Elastic Beanstalk

Tuesday, 15th November at CodeNode, London

This meetup is run by LRUG: London Ruby User Group. Starts at 6:30 PM.

Do you want to know the cost associated with your code? Are you interested in AWS and Docker for rails developers? Join this LRUG meetup to learn more!

The invisible cost of code

Every line of code has cost associated with it. The cost of writing it. The cost of testing it. Deploying it. Reading it. Changing it later. I'd like to identify some of the costs and suggest ways of reducing them. Hint: write less code in the first place.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk & Docker for Rails developers

In this talk we will configure simple Rails app, wrap it in a Docker container and ship it to AWS EB setup. We will look at some awesome configuration options.

Where does my code go?

While Rails provides us a great platform for rapid application development it doesn't give us much guidance on where to start placing common abstractions once our domain complexity grows. This talk isn't about the 'architecture astronaut' or fighting rails to implement 'better' patterns, it's a really basic intro to some of the layers you can implement tomorrow to compartmentalise your code without having to fight the framework.

Michael Lennox

Michael is a developer working on mobile payments platforms at mGage where he's fortunate enough to see both: the downsides of a lack of application structure (an ancient, close to unmaintainable merb monolith); as well as how simple it can be to make changes in systems where we think of clean and compartmentalised architectures (our shiny new(ish) platforms to replace the monolith).
