Sessions tagged with 'ruby'

Wesley Beary (Heroku)
Cloud computing scared the crap out of me - the quirks and nightmares of provisioning cloud computing, dns, storage, etc on AWS, Terremark, Rackspace, etc - until I took the bull by the horns. Come see me demonstrate tools and examples that will allow you to skip the headaches and cut straight to the cloud.
Steve Jenson (Twitter, Inc)
Twitter is the largest Ruby on Rails installation on the web right now -- however, we have been moving from solely hosting Rails applications to a mixed Rails and JVM deployment. This migration has been ongoing for a few years at Twitter and we now run several back-end, high-throughput, and critical components on the JVM.
Darian Shimy (Attensity)
Hot Potato is an open source real-time processing framework written in Ruby. Originally designed to process the Twitter firehose at 3,000+ tweets per second, it has been extended to support any type of streaming data as input or output to the framework.
Gregg Pollack (Envy Labs), Eric Allam (Envy Labs), Tyler Hunt (Envy Labs), Carlos Souza (Envy Labs), Jason VanLue (Envy Labs), Nick Walsh (Envy Labs)
This is an introductory course which teaches the basics of web application development using the Ruby language with the most recent release of the Ruby on Rails framework. If you've never tried Rails or you've only "played with it" at home, then this tutorial is for you.
Charles Nutter (Engine Yard, Inc)
JRuby is just a Ruby implementation for the JVM, right? Wrong! JRuby has gone well beyond other language implementations by supporting arbitrarily-encoded strings, native library calls, reloadable applications, and much more. This talk will explore how JRuby is pushing the JVM and Java platform in new directions, and how you can take advantage of this new power.
Jordan Sissel (Elasticsearch)

Get the most out of your logs with logstash. Logstash is free, open source, and scalable, and exists to help you debug, analyze, and correlate issues in real-time across your infrastructure and your business.
Chris Helm (GeoIQ)
Both location based technology and Ruby have become extremely popular in recent years. There are many libraries and tools that are available for Rubyists to geospatially enable their applications. In this workshop you will learn both what these tools are and how to use them.
Gleicon Moraes (7co.cc)
Sometimes there is a mix between performance and scalability, but they are different dimensions. Changing your code from blocking to non-blocking yields scalability at the cost of a complexity. In this talk I show how Python, Ruby and JS do that, the differences between their async toolkits and some basic building blocks for web and high load applications.
Gregg Pollack (Envy Labs), Eric Allam (Envy Labs), Carlos Souza (Envy Labs), Tyler Hunt (Envy Labs), Jason VanLue (Envy Labs), Nick Walsh (Envy Labs)
As the Rails community has matured several conventions have emerged, in the form of best practices. In this 5 part lab, we will walk through the most common of these practices and get some hands on experience refactoring Rails.
Kate Matsudaira (SEOmoz)
Ruby on Rails is a great framework for quickly building applications, but what happens when you are wildly successful and need to scale WAY up? This talk is a case study in the evolution of our Rails application from a monolithic "does everything" systems running on a hosted server to a service-oriented system running in the cloud.
Toby Crawley (RedHat, Inc.)
The power of enterprise Java is now available through the expressiveness of Ruby. More and more projects are suited to new technologies and frameworks such as Ruby on Rails. Using TorqueBox, a team's members can leverage their knowledge, investments, skills, and trust in Java while exploring the cutting edge of new development models.
Raffi Krikorian (Twitter)
Keynote by Raffi Krikorian, developer, Twitter.
How does Unicode support across major platforms, including Java, Perl, Python, Ruby, and more, stack up? Who's doing the best job, and who's failing miserably? Is anyone doing a good job? Does anyone actually implement to standard, and to what extent? I'll compare the major platforms to separate the losers from the not-so-losers.
Clinton N. Dreisbach (Relevance, Inc.)
Smart developers have been using Ruby on Rails to build web applications for over 5 years. Cutting-edge projects have aged into legacy apps. Rails 3 and Ruby 1.9 offer new features that are guaranteed to take the squeak out of that old wheel and grease the tracks of new development. We're going to walk through upgrading real projects and work together to solve issues the audience has found.
David Copeland (LivingSocial)
Presentation: external link
From a quick automation script to a more involved command-line based system, it's hard to make a polished and maintainable command line application. With Ruby, and a handful of open-source libraries, it's actually pretty easy.
Wade Minter (TeamSnap), Michael Mayo (Rackspace)
OpenStack is an effort to build a completely open, community driven, enterprise-level cloud computing and storage platform. Not only is the technology open, but the APIs are as well. This session will show how to leverage the power of the current compute and storage APIs, as well as look down the road to future releases.
