We're back from our summer break with great talks from two of our community members!

Compiling Ruby

Kevin Deisz - @kddeisz (https://twitter.com/kddeisz)

Since Ruby 2.3 and the introduction of ::load_iseq, Ruby has separated running byte code from compiling ruby code. As a result, we can have take advantage of the strengths of both the ruby VM and the benefits of a compiler. This talk demonstrates all the exciting possibilities this enables.

In Relentless Pursuit of REST

Derek Prior - @derekprior (https://twitter.com/derekprior)

"That's not very RESTful." As a Rails developer you've probably heard or even spoken that proclamation before, but what does it really mean? What's so great about being RESTful anyway?

RESTful architecture can narrow the responsibilities of your Rails controllers and make follow-on refactorings more natural. In this talk, you'll learn to refactor code to follow RESTful principles and to identify the positive impact those changes have throughout your application stack.

We're looking for speakers for October. Please submit your talk proposals on Papercall (https://www.papercall.io/bostonrb)!
