  • Touch of Modern's Ruby on Rails Tech Talk @ Zendesk
    More companies are using Ruby on Rails to build their tech. Whether you've been an engineer for years and recently picked up Rails, you've specialized in it for years, or if you learned it at bootcamp - there's always something to gain by networking with fellow Rubyists! We will be providing food and drinks (something a bit more appealing than just pizza,) and we'll have two presentations on Ruby and Rails. Here's the run of show: 6:00pm: Doors open - Food, drinks, and networking 6:30pm: Welcome - Sally Ahn (Senior Director of HR) Touch of Modern & Christopher Thilgen (Senior Engineering Manager) Zendesk 6:40pm: gRPC - A high performance, open-source universal RPC framework - Minh Nguyen 7:10pm: Application deployment in heterogeneous application environments - Brian Colfer 7:40pm: More networking time gRPC - A high performance, open-source universal RPC framework - Minh Nguyen This talk is an introduction to gRPC -- a high-performance RPC framework that's here to challenge the holy trinity of JSON/HTTP/REST. We'll cover the basic questions: What is gRPC? Is anyone really running this stuff in production? How do we start using it? In addition, we'll take a look at how gRPC is being adopted at Zendesk. Application deployment in a heterogeneous application environment - Brian Colfer The application environment is complicated by a mix of new and legacy technologies, a variety of languages and frameworks, many run time platforms. One of the challenges of this landscape is laying down a safe release pipeline that provides simplicity and flexibility. I will describe the basic principles of setting up a pipeline using a variety of technologies. I will present an example pipeline and a pipeline tool box you can use to build your own. Finally, I will take a look at the future of deployment strategies. About the presenters: Minh Nguyen is software engineer with experience in Scala, Ruby, Javascript, SQL, jQuery, Rails and React/Flux. Her academic interests lie in computability, formal logic, ethics, and philosophy of mind. She graduated magna cum laude from Yale University with a BA in Philosophy and spent a year abroad at the Australian National University. Brian Colfer is a release engineer with Zendesk for about a year. He has 30 years of experience in developing tools for building, testing and deploying software. Outside of programming his interests are in cello, soccer and public policy. If you have any questions, please e-mail [masked]
