CANCELED Feb DCRUG: Resque in Production + Building Websites with BrowserCMS

  • Feb 13, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This meetup is being canceled due to weather. We will try to reschedule these speakers for next month.

Our meetings are open to all experience levels, from total novices to expert Rubyists.

Current agenda:

  • "Resque in Production - Background Everything" by David Copeland

    Background processing can be powerful for scaling, performance, and general de-coupling of your architecture. Resque is a popular means of doing this for Ruby and Rails apps, but if you aren't careful, you can create more problems.

    This talk will go over the basics of Resque, and then dive into what you need to think about when running code in a background job, including structuring your code, monitoring, and error handling.

  • "Building Websites with BrowserCMS" by Patrick Peak

    When it comes time to build a new website for your organization or client, one of the important decisions will frequently be ‘What Content Management System should we use?’. While PHP based tools like Wordpress or Drupal are popular choices, there are excellent Ruby based CMS's as well. One such tool is BrowserCMS, an open source tool built on Rails 4.0. It provides the essential content management features your contributors want along with the flexibility and familiarity provided by Rails.

    This talk will cover a tutorial on how to build a website with the new 4.0 version of BrowserCMS, covering topics ranging from creating templates to creating custom content types. Built as a Rails Engine, BrowserCMS can also be integrated with your existing Rails application to add CMS features to it.

We now meet monthly at Logik's new headquaters, now located at 1400 I (Eye) Street NW, Suite 800 Washington, DC 20005. The closest Metro stop is McPherson Square. If you're downstairs and need someone to let you into the building or the elevator, please give me a call at[masked] or tweet me at @naffis.

We always need presenters, so if you have a topic or project on which you'd like to do a 30-minute presentation on anything Ruby-related, Rails-related or possibly of interest to Ruby developers, please contact our organizers [masked] and we'll schedule you to speak. If you have presented before, you are welcome to give a presentation on a new topic. This is a great chance for some of you guys and gals lingering in the back of the room to share some of the cool things you are working on. Don't be shy -- you're among fellow geeks. :)

As always, we'll have an ample supply of free pizza and soda for all attendees, so don't worry about eating dinner beforehand.

And we'll be heading to a nearby bar after the meeting, to unwind and socialize with fellow techies.
