Ruby on Rails - When the Decorator Pattern doesn’t Scale

Airbus Aerial @ Ponce City Market

The decorator pattern provides guidelines and best practices to help you write and maintain organized code...but how does it affect performance at scale? We will talk about a different approach that can increase querying performance for large sets of data while still creating a liveable code base. ABOUT OUR SPEAKERS Amanda Raymond, Senior Engineer at CallRail I am a fullStack engineer that strives to put product first and create a good UX for end-users. I learned how to code after having a quarter-life crisis and moving across the country(and back) to attend General Assembly, where I learned how to code. I have been in a loving relationship with Angular and Rails ever since… Autumn Wright, Senior Engineer at CallRail I work in HTML/CSS, Angular, Ruby, and some pretty terrible PHP. I feel very strongly about providing great online experiences and leaving anything I touch better than when I found it. Agenda: 6:30 pm - networking, social time and food 7:00 pm - meetup program kicks off 8:00 pm - networking & social time **This event is intended for anyone who identifies as female and is queer, trans and nonbinary friendly. Men are also welcome to attend. ***All attendees must follow the Code of Conduct: https://www.womenwhocode.com/codeofconduct
