• JRuby 2018: Real World Performance with Thomas Enebo and Charles Nutter
    Pizza and drinks at 6:30 - Talks at 7pm. Please RSVP! Speakers: Thomas E Enebo & Charles Oliver Nutter "JRuby 2018: Real World Performance" This year has been big for JRuby! We're pushing the edges of performance on the JVM and now see large frameworks running much faster than CRuby. This talk will cover the optimizations we've done in 2018 and what impact they're having on performance. We'll go through several features that did not optimize well before the recent work. We'll talk about supporting new Rails versions and how we're working to make Rails apps more reliable, more concurrent, and more scalable. Finally we will discuss what the future holds and how you can get involved.

  • Monthly Meetup - Nick LaMuro: Ruby Off Rails
    Pizza and drinks at 6:30 - Talks at 7pm. Please RSVP! Speaker(s): --- Nick LaMuro - Ruby Off Rails Here in the Western hemisphere, when most people think of Ruby they immediately think of Ruby on Rails. Most "Ruby" job postings involve Rails, and the line between the language and the framework is often so blurry we associate them as one and the same. But there's a lot more to Ruby beyond just web development. In this talk, we will explore some of the "hidden gems" of Ruby, without using "gems" at all - just good old stdlib. We'll cover a collection of things ranging from ri/rdoc, rake, different ways of executing external commands, and messing with FileIO. ---

    Pizza and drinks at 6:30 - Talks at 7pm. Please RSVP! Chris Arcand - Why GraphQL? If you don’t know much about GraphQL, you probably just identify it as the hip, shiny new thing companies are adopting to replace their RESTful APIs. Sure, sure – clients can ask for only what they need in a single request – but is that it? What really makes GraphQL so special? In this talk, you’ll be introduced to GraphQL beyond just the usual explanations of the query language and learn why things like GraphQL’s introspection and type system make it an enormous advancement in web technologies.

    This month Nitin Savant (https://www.meetup.com/members/213342166/) will be presenting about Conflict-Free Replicated Datatypes (CRDTs) Specifically, how do Google Docs and Github's TeleType allow multiple users to simultaneously edit text? How does any app achieve a real-time effect while maintaining consistent state among users? These questions led us to build a decentralized, peer-to-peer, collaborative text editor of our own! In this talk, he'll break everything down into simple pieces and explain how we built a collaborative editor using Conflict-Free Replicated Datatypes (CRDTs) and WebRTC. You will learn about: * Merging conflicting edits using CRDTs * Guaranteeing causality with Version Vectors * Maintaining and scaling connections in a distributed network * And much more While this isn't a Ruby project, it will be extremely interesting to anyone who builds for the web. Pizza and drinks at 6:30 - Talks at 7pm. Please RSVP!
