Thank You Speakers
We want to extend some warm thank yous to Kate Rutter from Luxr, Serena Wales from Textizen, and Craig Muth from Wiki for their talks last week. We heard terrific feedback on them and are grateful for some truly great presentations.
Thank You Sponsors
Also want to extend huge thank yous to Intercom for providing awesome food and drinks and Heavybit Industries for providing a great venue. We're grateful for the support.
Below is an offering from Intercom as well as some of their open positions. They are a company on the move so definitely worthwhile checking out (as both a service to use and a company to work for).
Upcoming Meetups in Sept/Oct/Nov
We'll post dates for upcoming meetups for September, October, and November. If you'd like to speak, please send me a note direct or via the meetup group. Always looking for good talks on performance, scaling, architecture, testing as well as on other frameworks and technologies that fit in alongside a Rails app. (Also feel free to nominate a friend / co-worker – with or without their knowledge...)
Until next month,
Intercom is offering a coupon for 3 months worth of service free.
Coupon Code: IntercomLovesRails
Intercom is growing and API traffic is doubling every 3 months. We’re looking for systems engineers who want to work on a few interesting projects. Here's a short list:
• Split the monolithic rails app in to discrete services
• Redesign our data storage to handle the next 100x growth
• Shrink the time taken from a push to master until production deployment to less than 10 minutes
• Design and roll out a websocket infrastructure capable of handling hundreds of thousands of concurrent connections. (https://www.intercom.io/jobs/ops)
