Rack and Git Hooks

  • October 14, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Noah Gibbs will present 'Just Build Your Server on Rack' and 'Rack Middleware with Any Framework':

"Just Build Your Server on Rack": Build your framework or application directly on Rack...  It's a very convenient layer and every Ruby application server supports it.  Why do it?  Why not?  Better yet, what do you learn, and how exactly do you do it?  Includes full source.

"Rack Middleware with Any Framework": Building and using Rack middleware is awesome.  It works with any Ruby web framework...  But it's horribly under-documented.  Get a quick introduction to both built-in and third-party Middleware and how to use it.

Ruth Helfinstein will be presenting about Ruby Git Hooks:

"Learn how you can use Ruby Git Hooks to make Git work the way you want!  With built-in hooks to check your commits for Jira bug ticket numbers, copyright messages, extra large files, and other problems, Ruby Git Hooks can help keep you honest and streamline your Git workflow.  We will walk through some examples of how to use the built-in checks and how to write your own in just a few lines of code."

    Thanks, Rich! Yeah, that driving advice is important! Otherwise you may miss it and circle back.

    Current plan is that people will probably filter in at around 6, but we'll start the actual talks at 6:30, beginning with "Just Build Your Server on Rack."

    Looking forward to seeing people!

    I'm always happy to hear Noah speak and Ruth's topic also sounds interesting and useful.

    FWIW, here's a bit of driving advice. 1091 N. Shoreline has the last driveway before the US101 South onramp. So, get on N. Shoreline between Middlefield and 101, headed NE. Get in the right-hand lane and take the very last driveway before the onramp.
