  • NYC on Rails: Technical Talks
    NYC on Rails is back and we have some stellar presenters lined up! The evening will feature short Ruby/Rails-related talks, followed by Q&A, and networking. Speaker Lineup: 1. Eli Bosworth (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/eli-bosworth/49/451/34a) of Casper (https://casper.com/): "The Postgres JSON Column in Action" Perhaps you’ve read a blog post about the json column in Postgres, perhaps you’ve used it yourself. Hopefully in either case you’ll be interested to hear how we’ve made use of the JSON column at Casper. I’ll discuss our specific usage and talk about how things might have gone differently if we’d decided to handle our use case in a more classic relational fashion. 2. Spike Gronim (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/spike-gronim/1/250/1a5) of Etsy (https://etsy.com): "High Impact Projects" Software developers typically have at least 10 projects that they could be working on. You can only do one thing at a time (well), so which project should you work on? Do you need more users, more engaged users, or more money from the users that you have? This talk will cover some quick techniques for estimating impact before you invest your time in a project. 3. Hunter Powers (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/hunter-powers/51/668/657) of Jibe (https://www.jibe.com/): "Document and Test Your Rails APIs With Ease" Two critical paths to successful API development are the communication of endpoint specifications and the insurance of general availability. The easier we can make these two paths to traverse, the more likely we are to find success. This talk will outline an accelerated flow towards documenting and testing rails APIs with ease. 4. Nick Thuesen (https://github.com/CaptPhunkosis/) of Justworks (https://www.justworks.com/): "Developing Rails Apps in Docker" Docker is powerful tool for management and deployment in a production environment. But even if you're not using Docker in production it can make development less of a chore when it comes to setting up and managing your local environments and dependencies. In this talk I will share some of the highlights and pitfalls we've experienced while developing our Rails application using Docker. About the Presenters: Eli Bosworth (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/eli-bosworth/49/451/34a) of Casper (https://casper.com/) Eli Bosworth is the Director of Technical Operations at Casper. Before that, he was a Senior Developer at a small hedge fund and a Developer at OkCupid.
