    Coding Night is the same great community as presentation night, but with a focus on collaborating on code. There's a lot of Ruby, but we are open to any and all languages. It's the fourth Thursday of every month, at Kapost Bring your laptop. Kapost will be supplying the Wi-Fi, pizza and drinks! We'll be there from 6PM until 8:30PM or so.

    1050 Walnut St

    A special Boulder Startup Week Edition on Tuesday May 14th at Recurly! (https://boulderstartupweek2019.sched.com/event/NNhh/boulder-ruby-presentation-night) Join us at our monthly gathering where we present topics of interest to Rubyists and aspiring programmers. Doors open at 6:00pm, where you can hangout and socialize with other Boulder Ruby members. We have food and beverages available to add to the enjoyment. At 7:15, we do announcements before getting to our presentations. ================================== The What, Why, And How of Software Components - In Ruby and Beyond by Stephan Hageman from Pivotal Description: With components your apps will be happier, healthier, and development will be more fun. Let me show you how! Components add a layer of structure that is not present in many applications. The structure in question is that of bounded contexts. Bounded contexts with boundaries enforced and tests separated. If you have thought that your app is too big and that the way to save it is micro services, you may want to take it one step slower and look at components first. In Ruby, we create component-based apps with gems; in Rails, we add engines. The technology is one thing - there is a lot to consider there. This talk will quickly cover the tech and dive deeper into the what, the why, and how of component-based application development. Bio: Stephan has built a career helping organizations like Humana and Volkswagen rethink their approach to software and cloud based architectures. In his recent book, Component-based Rails Applications, he outlines best practices for pushing Ruby to new levels of performance and maintainability. Stephan prides himself in building robust systems that stand the test of time and are only as complex as they need to be to accomplish the task. He likes his programming language to get out of the way. He has most experience with Ruby, JavaScript, Java, and Go but he is happy to dabble in any language. ================================== If you would like to present at this meeting, or at upcoming events, reach out to the organizers on this meetup or ping us at @boulderruby (https://twitter.com/boulderruby) on Twitter.

This talk will explore how we can apply these concepts to building views in Ruby/Rails. Bio: Joel is a software engineer at GitHub. He has worked on projects including 2FA reminders and the Content Attachments API. He now leads Project Paper Cuts, incorporating feedback from members of the community into GitHub. ================================== Dive Into Kubernetes by Chris Willmore from Kapost Description: You've probably heard that Kubernetes is a powerful container orchestration framework - but what does it really do? What is it like to adopt and work with? We'll first familiarize ourselves with Kubernetes through a quick introduction of core concepts. We'll then cover the experience of migrating a complex micro-service system over to the platform. We'll talk about what worked, what didn't, and how you can take the leap and get the most out of Kubernetes. Bio: Chris Willmore, VP of Engineering at Kapost. Chris just moved to Boulder after 10 years in Europe. While overseas his roles included development at Yahoo! Answers, leading a team building content ingestion systems for Shazam, and leading development of a customer engagement platform at SaleMove. When Chris isn't dealing with reverse culture shock, he enjoys reading sci-fi. ================================== If you would like to present at this meeting, or at upcoming events, reach out to the organizers on this meetup or ping us at @boulderruby (https://twitter.com/boulderruby) on Twitter.
