Our meetings are open to all experience levels, from total novices to expert Rubyists.
Current agenda: **Some Funny Things Happened on The Way to A Service Ecosystem by Chris Hoffman**
So this one time we ran Rails services over AMQP (instead of HTTP). You may be thinking “Why? Was that their first mistake?” It was not. From handling shared models poorly to deploying & operating services with inadequate tooling, we've made...so many mistakes. I'm glad we did; they helped us grow. We have patterns & practices for everything we’ve seen so far, from API contracts to distributed consensus protocols. Over this talk’s 40 minutes, you'll learn things it took us 3 years to grasp. Whether you have a monolith or pine for when you did, you'll be more prepared and better armed than we were.
Chris Hoffman is a Senior Developer on the Developer Empowerment team at Optoro. He builds tools and systems that help engineers develop, test, package, and deliver code to production, then understand it once it's there.
**Adding a GraphQL API to a Rails application by Tony Pisarenkov**
We now meet at Optoro's Metro Center location at 1001 G St NW, 12th floor
Please note our Code of Conduct: https://github.com/joshsz/organization_documents/blob/master/dcrug/CodeOfConduct.md
We always need presenters, so if you have a topic or project on which you'd like to do a 30-minute presentation on anything Ruby-related, Rails-related or possibly of interest to Ruby developers, please contact our organizers [masked] and we'll schedule you to speak. If you have presented before, you are welcome to give a presentation on a new topic. This is a great chance for some of you guys and gals lingering in the back of the room to share some of the cool things you are working on. Don't be shy -- you're among fellow geeks. :)
As always, we'll have an ample supply of free pizza and soda for all attendees, so don't worry about eating dinner beforehand.
And we'll be heading to a nearby bar after the meeting, to unwind and socialize with fellow techies.
