Learn advanced Ruby performance optimization tricks, techniques, and processes from the author of the Ruby Performance Optimization book recently published by the Pragmatic Bookshelf.

We'll talk about what exactly makes Ruby slow, and ways to fix it by optimizing memory usage first and CPU usage next. We'll also talk about benchmarking, profiling, and performance testing.

At the Q/A session after the presentation you'll have a chance to ask your question about Ruby and Rails performance.
