17:45 - 18:00: Gathering

18:00: DRYing up Controllers and Views

Let’s that say you want to create an Admin App. that manages models in the “scaffold” way with your own look & feel. Well, Scaffold can be customised but is not DRY, Rails-Admin/Active-Admin doesn’t give you full control over the html and controllers code.

So, Do it your self, but DRY it up. Inherited-Resources will help you to DRY up the controllers. Simple Forms/Formtastic will help you to DRY up you forms. Tabletastic will help you to DRY up you index pages. Drapper will help you reuse and decouple view logic via OO. And I will show you how all those can play together nicely!

The speaker: Nitzan Aviram

18:45 - 19:00: Break

19:00: Juicy Ruby 2.1

In this talk I will cover improvements in Ruby 2.1: GC and Profiling features. 

Measuring Ruby code becomes much easier. You will be able to dive into your App memory to find your bottlenecks.  You will have plenty of reasons to upgrade your Ruby version. 

The speaker: David Paluy

      Thanks David, that was really useful and left me feeling much more comfortable about using 2.1 in production.

    Hi All, Thank you for hosting me--it was nice to meet those of you whom I had the chance to talk to and I look forward to meeting others at future meet-ups once I make Aliyah.
    While the talks were aimed at more experienced RoR programmers than me*, I appreciated the welcoming atmosphere and the opportunity to learn something.

    Apologies for leaving before the second talk, but I was exhausted after traveling from the states and desperately wanted to also "meetup" with my girlfriend :)



    *While my experience with Ruby does not currently extend past completing the codecademy course on Ruby, I'm glad and appreciate that there are additional outlets to learn about intermediate and advanced topics in a face-to-face format for when I'm a more experienced RoR programmer.

      was surprised you had the energy to attend at all - kudos :-)

    The presentations were great, the advertisement wasn't. Very disrespectful to come to a meetup, work (on your laptop) during the entire first presentation, advertise your workplace and leave before the second presentation.
    There are places designed for that, when you spend your time coming to a meetup you don't want people to disrespectfully waste it.

      Oded, I was hoping to respectfully counter one of the points that you made:
      I'm not sure about the standard conventions of meetups in Israel (or even for this RoR community in particular), but for ones on Python that I've attended in DC it is not uncommon for recruiters or others who are organizing events (like a gov't sponsored hack-a-thon) to mention it in an announcements portion of the meetup.
      I'm not trying to start an argument, but I thought I might mention that it's not the convention across all meetups for that to happen.

    The room was inadequate. Next time lets have the meetup where there is air

    The first talk was very informative and gave us some tools. The second one was good as well, but went too deep sometimes and I wish it would focus more on practical usages.

    I only stayed for the first talk (About DRYing up Controllers and Views) and found it over my head with my current (very basic) Ruby/Rails knowledge. I kinda understood the motivation, but found the talk a bit too dry and repetitive.

  • Bernard P.

    Somewhat new to Ruby/Rails. I found the DRY talk more useful ATM

    I really would like to join this meetup, but unfortunately am unavailable on Mondays. Any chance it will be recorded?

    Hi guys,

    I'm an aspiring ruby developer who is planning on making aliyah sometime in the next year, and while not yet a proficient Ruby coder (I'm attending DevBootcamp's RoR training in SF over this coming summer), I wanted to connect with the Ruby community while I'm in town and there's a meetup. I land at NaTBa״G at 4:15 PM and am hoping to make it through customs and get to TA in time for the meetup, but may be cutting it really close/end up running late...When would be a good time to slip in if I am running late?

      Welcome to Israel Ariel! Feel free to slip in at any time.
