I'm really happy to announce that this month we will have a full London delegation talking to the BRUG. Make sure to RSVP please.
First talk will be from Stephen Best
Improve your code with dependency injection
Most of us have heard the vague, hand waving spiel about why DI is important for writing flexible, reusable code, a little harder to come by are examples of how one actually goes about doing it in a (cost) effective manner.
Rather than a dry introduction to DI, this talk will be packed full of code examples demonstrating practical techniques you can start using straight away, no gems, meta-programming or magic required. We'll also explore how you might persuade your Rails app to benefit from DI.
Second talk will be from JB Steadman from PivotalLabs
How to Make Your Objects Selfish, Ignorant, and Lazy in One Easy Step
“Tell Don’t Ask”, “Single Responsibility Principle”, “Composition Over Inheritance”. These OO guidelines ride shotgun with us as we code, sitting on our shoulder and whispering in our ear.
At April’s NWRUG I’ll add one more to this list – an idea that helps yield cleaner code. But be warned: we’re going to touch Ruby’s third rail.
Third talk by our local Bristolian Londoner Sam Phippen
What's coming in RSpec 3?
Love RSpec? Want to find out what's coming next? This talk is all about new things that you're going to want to be ready for in RSpec 3.
We will aim to start at 7:30pm sharp, so please arrive around 7:00pm if you want to have a chat.
After the talk we will head to the Tobacco Factory pub for some well deserved beers.
