Brakeman and Jenkins: Pretty Good Friends by Justin Collins

Brakeman is a tool which provides vulnerability checks for Ruby on Rails applications via static analysis. Jenkins is a continuous integration system. When their powers combine, they provide a convenient method for monitoring Ruby on Rails applications for security issues with minimal effort - during all stages of development.

Justin is a perpetual graduate student and also works at AT&T Interactive.

Shell-Scripting The Webbernets by Giles Bowkett

(Originally scheduled for May)

Ever found a web site which sucked? Of course you did. In 2011, with the ubiquitous proliferation of APIs, RSS, and modern Web technologies, there's no excuse for complaining. You can just get in there and fix it. We'll look at several sites Giles has tuned to his personal preferences without any participation from the sites themselves: Clueful Google, a Google hack which makes Google useful for JavaScript developers; Hacker Newspaper, a Hacker News with better typography, much faster performance, and best of all, no discussions or comments; Minimal Bitly and Minimal GitHub, versions of those sites with super-clean user experiences, streamlined for only the use cases Giles was personally interested in; and best of all, dotjs, a terrific project which allowed Giles to remove annoyances from Twitter and other web sites. You'll see along the way how you too can rewrite the entire internet to suit your personal convenience without spending a lot of time.

Giles Bowkett rides the wild plains a-rustlin his sombrero. He is a loud-voiced ruffian and a hooker with a heart of gold. Programming Ruby since 2005, speaker at many many conferences, you can scope out his nifty projects at, which was built with Node.js and the GitHub API.

    Hopefully people were at least entertained by my floundering.
