John Athayde, one of the authors of "The Rails View: Create a Beautiful and Maintainable User Experience," will be speaking at our 2nd April meetup.
Are your Ruby on Rails views suffering from cluttered code? Have they become a tangled web of HTML, logic, and who-knows-what-else?
We've reached a quite a bit of consensus on what makes clean code in our Ruby projects. However, there's not as much agreement on how to structure your Rails views. Come learn from John's expertise about how to create maintainable views, and how to leverage some tools to make working with them easier.
He'll cover 10 simple rules you can follow immediately to transform the way you write, think, and feel about Rails views.
John is a UI/UX/Design type who comes from an architecture (of the building variety) background. He's been in the Rails community since 2006 and has broad experience in e-commerce and running creative teams. He is currently leading the design and view development on Internal Tools at LivingSocial. Prior to LivingSocial he was the Design guy at InfoEther and ran Hyphenated People, a UI/UX Consultancy with Amy Hoy. He also runs Meticulous, a design and film company, in his free time.
