The Sacramento Ruby April Meetup

  • Apr 15, 2010 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Agenda: This month
Jeremy Evans will be presenting "Ruby Techniques By Example," a presentation based on his presentation at the
Mountain West Ruby Conference: Many presentations focus on showing off new applications and libraries. They show you what has been accomplished, but rarely do they show you how. This presentation will take examples from production code (mainly from Sequel), showing techniques that you can use in your own code. Some of the techniques demonstrated will relate to:

  • Creating more easily extensible code

  • Handling class-level data within inheritance hierarchies

  • Improving dynamically defined method performance safely

  • Structuring DSL implementations

  • Dynamically defining singleton methods

  • Presenting multiple backends as one

Jeremy Evans is the lead developer of the
Sequel database library.
About the Meetup This is a controlled access building. Please call Chris's cell at[masked] As always, a number of folks will be around the hour before the formal meeting (6:30pm) to conduct the "Ruby Clinic". Bring your questions, problems, or other issues in and we'll try to help you out. Whether you are a new learner of Ruby, someone trying to set up a new machine, or an experienced developer with a tough problem at work, the Ruby Clinic is the place to turn to. Hope to see everyone at the meeting!

    I had a lot of fun presenting and got some great feedback that I'll be using in future versions of the presentation.

    Great meetup! I will be back next month if my wife and our approximately-one-week-old child lets me out of the house. :)

    We are booked at Pearson once again and I will have the recording equipment setup so we can attempt to record the presentation, a first for the group I believe.

    The Ruby Clinic at 6:30pm will be held in the smaller conference rooms to allow for people to have their questions answered, so write down a couple of items you want to discuss and head over early.

    Once ready, we will head to the large training room where we can chat, have some pizza, and enjoy the presentation.
