- [Free Outside Event] Sandi Metz at Shopify
Free Outside Event - Sandi Metz presents Polly Want A Message IMPORTANT - Event RSVP's are tracked outside of the Meetup page. REGISTER HERE: https://ti.to/shopify-san-francisco/sandi-metz/ Object-oriented languages have an opinion about how best to model the world. OO offers unique affordances, that is, OO languages want to be used in specific ways. When your coding style aligns with OO’s natural inclinations, it’s easy to create intuitive, expressive, and maintainable apps. Woe be unto you, however, if your app’s code labors at cross purposes with OO’s expectations. This clash of viewpoints leads to confusing, unmaintainable applications that are filled with recurring conditionals, impenetrable methods, and colossal classes. This talk explains what OO wants. It uses straightforward examples to indoctrinate you into Object-Oriented thinking. You’ll leave raring to write loosely-coupled, message-centric, small-object OO that isolates conditionals and leans on polymorphism. Once you understand OO’s natural affordances, everything becomes easy. Your code will never be the same. A few things you can learn from joining us: - The centrality of messages - The power of polymorphism - The benefits of loose coupling - The advantages of factories In addition to lots of learning, there will be plenty of cheese, charcuterie, and drinks. And, because Polly doesn't just want a message, there will be plenty of crackers, too. Doors open at 6:30pm, presentation will begin at 7pm followed by Q&A, doors close at 9pm. RSVP here: https://ti.to/shopify-san-francisco/sandi-metz/ About Sandi Metz: Sandi Metz, author of Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby and 99 Bottles of OOP , believes in simple code and straightforward explanations. She prefers working software, practical solutions and lengthy bicycle trips (not necessarily in that order) and writes, consults, and teaches about object-oriented design.

- APIs + GraphQL + Rails :-D
Want to speak? Contact me! [masked] Agenda 6:30p Networking | Food | Drink 7:00p Intros 7:15p Speakers Talk 1: Designing a GraphQL Rails API with performance in mind Talk 2: Utilizing Tools to Build a GraphQL Backend for Rapid Development Talk 3: Scaling the Rails Monolith 8:30p End Talk 1: Designing a GraphQL Rails API with performance in mind with David Calavera GraphQL is a query language for APIs. It was originally designed at Facebook to improve latency between mobile clients and their backend systems. However, it has evolved to satisfy much more environments than Facebook. In this talk, we’ll discuss how GraphQL can help your Rails API to deliver faster and more lean responses. We’ll cover an advanced use case that we bumped into at Netlify, and what made us start using Graphql. We’ll also cover some tools that we use to measure API performance, as well as patterns and libraries to help migrating from a traditional REST API to a GraphQL API. Bio: David Calavera is the CTO of Netlify where he and his team are building the best platform for deploying and automating modern web projects. Before that, he was a core member of the Docker Engine project, where he helped developers build the container engine that started the container revolution. David also built enterprise tools for GitHub and has contributed to numerous open source projects, such us Go, JRuby and many others. Talk 2: Scaling the Rails Monolith Most Rails applications start off as a monolith that eventually need to be broken up into individual services. Mike will talk about how the Kit engineering team is scaling the Rails monolith they have been building for 3+ plus years into a service oriented architecture. Bio Mike Taylor is the founding engineer of Kit and now leads the engineering efforts out of the Shopify San Francisco office. Talk 3: Utilizing Tools to Build a GraphQL Backend for Rapid Development with Ting Chou Abstract GraphQL is a powerful technology providing the client with an efficient and elegant way to fetch data, getting exactly the data and avoiding multiple round-trips. This talk will cover topics beyond what you see in "Introduction to GraphQL" tutorials. After the talk, you'll gain a deeper understanding of GraphQL itself, with perspectives on how to build a GraphQL backend either alongside an existing app or from scratch. Bio Ting Chou is a web developer in San Francisco, CA. She is co-creator of a GraphQL backend framework called Allograph, and she loves animation.
