Talks and drinks!

  • February 3, 2014 · 7:00 PM

The third of february we'll be having talks again. The location is provided by Pluginc until 22.00. So unfortunately it will be a short event.

The event is sponsored by ElasticSearch providing us with free beer and pizza.

The talks:

Tom Kruijsen - Ember.js

Ember is what happens when you get a Rails core team member create a    JavaScript MVC framework. But how well do Rails and Ember play together?    This talk takes a look at tools for Rails that help you create a back-end    and tests for your Ember app.

Tom Aizenberg -

At the focus lies on music content. In this talk Tom will talk about how to they recommend with that content and make it scalable.

Timon Vonk - Elasticsearch

I heard you're not using elasticsearch. You should. Elasticsearch is a very scalable lucene based, easy to use search solution with a lot of fancy extras. In this talk, we'll go over what it is, how it works and what does. After that, we'll dive into some examples.

Kero van Gelder - Philips Hue @ NYE Ball Drop NYC

How a living room product ended up on a cold, cold roof in Manhattan.    How 1 billion people saw something powered by Ruby, but will never realize it.

    Nice talks, good discussion, unfortunate that we had to break up at 22:00.

      Sorry about that! Next time we'll either have a different location when doing talks or start an hour earlier (for food only, and talks at 19:00)

    Seems like I messed up what the testing gem was called: it's just 'konacha'. Anyway, I compiled a list of useful links of all the stuff I mentioned yesterday over here: It also includes my (fixed) slides.

    Thanks for having me yesterday, it was a blast.

      @Ivo: Thanks for the feedback. The point was more to show how to run Ember in a Rails project (it is a Ruby meet up after all). I also prefer to have as little code as possible on my slides.

      Haha yeah. Less code on slides <3

    Awesome turn up! Thanks! Will put up my slides (without the code) asap.

    Is there an option to park a car near the venue?

    February 2, 2014

    • Steven T

      Yes. It has a big parking. Not expensive too.

    • Timon V.

      Or you can park your car near my house for free and walk 5 minutes.
