Join us at our monthly gathering where we present topics of interest to Rubyists and aspiring programmers.

At 6:00pm, we hold our beginner's track, an interactive discussion where we dive into a topic geared towards newer programmers.

Around 6:30, the food arrives with time to enjoy a beverage and conversation with your peers.

At 7:15, we do announcements before getting to our presentations.


Presentation 1:

Brandon Croft - Strangulation Techniques for Rails

Strangulation Techniques for Rails will be presented by Brandon Croft. Brandon will discuss agile approaches for safely replacing legacy parts of Rails applications with a focus on specific technical approaches for common situations. For example, replacing a Rails-rendered frontend with a client-rendered one or replacing Mongo with a relational db.

Bio: Brandon Croft is a software developer at Kapost and has Seen. Some. Sh*t!


Presentation 2:

Dan Moore - What is Amazon Machine Learning and how can it work for you?

This presentation will cover what AML is, what types of data it works on, and how you can use it to easily make predictions about aspects of your business quickly, cheaply and without running any infrastructure.

Bio: Dan Moore is CTO at The Food Corridor & a Certified AWS Instructor.
