- He wrapped ncurses in Ruby... then THIS happened! - Hal Fulton
# About the Talk On one extreme is the raw command line-- on the other, the GUI or web interface. But in between is… curses! It works over an ssh session (or telnet/whatever). It gets you full-screen text mode, including windows, cursor control, colors, function and arrow keys, text fields, menus, mouse control, and more. Traditionally C-based and very painful, it has been "wrapped" many times in various languages. RubyText is an ongoing project aiming to be the best and easiest curses wrapper. It's not completely full-featured yet, but it's worth using. Come and see! # About the Speaker Hal Fulton is the author of The Ruby Way, now in its third edition. He is working on a book _Elixir for the Rubyist_, which should be released in 2019. He has two degrees in computer science and more than 20 years in the industry, including a few years of teaching. His short stories have been rejected by some of the finest magazines in the country. On rare occasions he plays chess and piano, both incredibly badly. He spends his spare time putting Slinkys on escalators and passing counterfeit bills to tourists. # Sponsors Thank you to our sponsors: Capital Factory, PeopleAdmin, RigUp

- Recursion Excursion - Nathan Hessler
Lets look at how recursion works, how ruby deals with recursion, and some ways we can help ourselves when wanting to think recursively. # About the Speaker Recently moved to Austin, and looking to get involved in the developer community here. He's an Engineering Manager at Procore, and enjoys lots of different things too numerous to list here. Oh, and, LETS GO NATIONALS!!!!! # Sponsors Thank you to our sponsors: Capital Factory, PeopleAdmin (a PowerSchool company), and ShippingEasy
- Property-Based Testing with Rantly.rb - Matt Rieger
# Talk Description Unexpected input can cause all kinds of bugs when your app hits production, especially in a dynamically typed language like Ruby. Property-based testing lets you throw everything —including the `KitchenSink` — at your new feature while it's being developed, exposing edge cases and unanticipated issues. We'll be learning about the pattern using Rantly.rb, a Ruby implementation of the popular Quickcheck pattern for property-based testing. # About the speaker Matt is a developer working in React and Rails for ShippingEasy in Austin. Before moving to the software world he was a transactional and litigation attorney practicing in Chicago. He loves learning new languages, techniques, and systems that make programming easier and more fun. Matt likes to get away from the computer by playing tabletop games with friends and getting to the gym. # Sponsors Thank you to our sponsors Capital Factory (location), PeopleAdmin (a PowerSchool company, food), and ShippingEasy (food)
- Functional Future Ruby - Yukihiro Matsumoto (EuRuKo 2019)

- Live Coding Challenges: An evening with your peers (doors open @ 6:15pm)
We've scoured the web to find coding problems that are gentle enough for beginners while providing enough depth for experts to sink their teeth into. Let's work together in a friendly environment, attempt to solve these problems, share our solutions, discuss, and hopefully learn from each other. Time to roll up your sleeves and get busy typing! NB: Bring your laptop with you, or make sure you have a partner with a laptop. # Sponsors Capital Factory: Location PeopleAdmin: Food
