An Introduction to Using Elasticsearch with Ruby Apps by Andrew Cholakian
ElasticSearch Crash Course: Search is a must-have for many modern applications. Integrating it, however, can be tricky. In this talk you'll be introduced to the basics of elasticsearch and information retrieval. Additionally, integrating elasticsearch into rails in a highly reliable and performant manner will be discussed.
Andrew Cholakian works as a Systems Engineer at Pose, where he spearheaded ElasticSearch backend team. He's the author of an in development book on elasticsearch at http://exploringelasticsearch.com, and is the author of the Stretcher elasticsearch ruby gem. He also is a semi-regular blogger, and has been a part of the LA Startup scene for the past 4 years.
Class Registry: a Ruby Design Pattern by Judson Lester
Decoupling components of any program often leads to better testability and smaller, easier to understand parts. The actual classes being used are a place where coupling happens, though. We'll talk about an approach to disentangling class use, as well as touching on the idea of design patterns in general.
Judson is the VP of Engineering at Logical Reality Deisng and has been programming in Ruby for longer than he cares to recall.
