Food and beverages will be on hand by 6:30 where you have a chance to grab something to eat and drink while chatting with your fellow Rubyists.
We get the remainder of the meeting started around 7:15 where we start with announcements.
We will have two presentations:
Raman Sinha will be presenting about extracting gems from your Rails application:
We will discuss how to extract and package reusable units of code from your existing Rails app into a new Ruby gem. Then I will show you how to package, publish, promote, and maintain your gem on sites like RubyToolbox.org, RubyGems.org, and GitHub.
Intended audience is an intermediate Rubyist that has created at least 1 rails app and sees the value of removing well-tested, reusable chunks of business logic from their main Rails/Ruby app.
John Unruh will be presenting on working with "massive" teams:
Development projects come in many sizes and shapes. As programs grow and age, the work methods, issues, and the "feel" of the development changes. While large teams can be cumbersome, they can also produce a lot of code, and when well managed, they can do it consistently. This talk will share some lessons learned working a massive development project.
