ChicagoRuby Online w/ Joel Hawksley: ViewComponents in the Real World

Location visible to members

Welcome to another edition of ChicagoRuby Online! This month we will be featuring RailsConf 2021 speaker Joel Hawksley!

ViewComponents in the Real World

SUMMARY:

With the release of 6.1, Rails added support for rendering objects that respond to render_in, a feature extracted from the GitHub application. This change enabled the development of ViewComponent, a framework for building reusable, testable & encapsulated view components. In this talk, we’ll share what we’ve learned scaling to hundreds of ViewComponents in our application, open sourcing a library of ViewComponents, and nurturing a thriving community around the project, both internally and externally.

AGENDA:

6:05 - Announcements
6:10 - Presentation
after - Hang out and mingle if you'd like!

SPEAKER:

Joel is a software engineer at GitHub and the creator of ViewComponent.

ChicagoRuby Online w Kevin Murphy- Engineering MBA: Be The Boss of Your Own Work

Welcome to another edition of ChicagoRuby Online! This month we will be featuring RailsConf 2021 speaker Kevin Murphy!

Engineering MBA: Be The Boss of Your Own Work

SUMMARY:

Improve your work as a developer with an introduction to strategic planning, situational leadership, and process management. No balance sheets or income statements here; join me to learn the MBA skills valuable to developers without the opportunity costs of lost wages or additional student loans.

Demystify the strategic frameworks your management team may use to make decisions and learn how you can use those same concepts in your daily work. Explore the synergy one developer achieved by going to business school (sorry, the synergy comment slipped out - old habit).

AGENDA:

6:05 - Announcements
6:10 - Presentation
after - Hang out and mingle if you'd like!

SPEAKER:

Kevin utilizes the knowledge learned as a business school graduate every day as a software developer. As proof of how great at business he is, he’s giving all of this information away: for free.

Kevin lives near Boston where he is a Software Developer at The Gnar Company.
