Hearding Elephants and Padrino

Herding Elephants: How Heroku uses Ruby to run the (probably) largest fleet of Postgres databases in the world

Clint Shryock, Heroku

Heroku operates the largest fleet of Postgres databases in the world. Service oriented architecture, infrastructure as code, and fault tolerance make it possible. Come hear how the Heroku Postgres team uses a handful of Ruby applications to operate and scale the largest herd of your favorite elephant themed RDBMS.

About the Speaker

Clint Shryock is a local slacker who's constantly amazed at how he's managed to get this far in life. He currently does things with Ruby, Postgres, and sometimes Go. He has unhealthy relationships with StartCraft 2 and coffee, separately and together.


Luke Parham, Carfax

Padrino is a light-weight web framework that combines the elegance and simplicity of Sinatra (upon which it is built) with the power of fuller stack frameworks like Rails and Django.  In this talk we'll go through a quick demo of developing a simple ReSTful JSON API along with showing the workings of a slightly more complicated app with views.  

About the Speaker

 Luke Parham (@lukeparham / lappp9 on github) is a web developer in Columbia who works at Carfax on Java apps by day and works with Pioneer Bible Translators along with a few startups doing Rails by night.  In his leftover times he likes to watch Seinfeld reruns, play Tennis, and grab a beer at Flatbranch.  


This month's food is sponsored by Heroku. Thanks Heroku!
