"Rails as an SOA Client" & "Rails as a front-end to a build system."

ThoughtWorks and Dev Bootcamp are co-hosting a special conference talk preview. Pete Hodgson will be presenting his RailsConf talk "Rails as an SOA client", and Badri Janakiraman will be talking about how Snap CI uses Rails as a front end to their hosted build product.


--------------------------------------------------
"Rails as an SOA client"

Our monolithic apps are evolving into ecosystems of connected services. It's becoming quite common for Rails apps to be working mainly as clients to other services. In this talk we'll cover tools and techniques for a happy and productive existence when your Rails app is acting as a front end to other services.

--------------------------------------------------
"Rails as a front-end to a build system.

Multi-tenant build tools that provide continuous integration (such as TravisCI) and continuous delivery capabilities (such as Snap) as a service are a interesting because they essentially involve people injecting code into your environment and asking for it to be executed. In addition, most of the work that these systems happens due to work that is done by users *outside* of the system i.e. code & tests that gets created and checked into a version control system. It may not be immediately obvious where Rails fits into the design of a system like this- but then again this is exactly the sort of place that having Rails on the UI layer has been most useful for us at Snap CI. In this talk, I will attempt to explain the design of Snap and how we use Rails to build a lot of the Snap experience.

We had planned for Danilo Sato to also present a talk he gave at RubyConf Brazil, but unfortunately he has had a family emergency and will be out of the country.
