February 2016 Meeting

Hosted By

Skills Matter

Thanks!

The February 2016 meeting of LRUG will be on Monday the 8th of February, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm (talks start at 6:30pm). The venue, Code Node between Moorgate and Liverpool St. stations, is provided by Skills Matter. Full venue and registration details are given below.

Agenda

Once again our February meeting is given over to lightning talks of no more than 10 minutes. This year we have:

  • Charlotte Spencer - "Making your first pull request"

    Your First PR is an initiative with a goal to get people involved in making pull requests to other open source projects. In this talk you will be introduced to Your First PR as a project, discover where you can find starter issues to work on, and learn how you can help others to make their own awesome pull requests.

  • Chris Blackburn - "Continuous Feedback"

    How we left behind old-fashioned performance reviews by applying the things we're taught to value in modern software delivery to our people.

  • Dave Nolan - "ENUMERABLE!"

    10 real-life problems solved with 10 cool lesser-known methods from Enumerable, Enumerator, and Array.

  • Najaf Ali - "How to use focused reading to become a better developer"

    Covering basic study skills and how to apply them to develop deeper technical knowledge.

  • Peter Saxton - "Building with domain concepts."

    All useful software is applied to a particular problem domain. This talk will encourage the use of value objects to better model a programs problem domain.

  • Tomas Valent - "Web Developer Life Hacks"

    In this talk we will have a look on some alternative work environment setups that will help Web Developers to improve productivity.

    Some related articles:

  • Tom Cartwright - "Psychology of programming: A very short introduction"

    The psychology of programming is field of research that deals with the psychological aspects of writing computer programs. (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychology_of_programming. This is a short introduction to the subject with a précis of the current research and few reckons thrown in for good measure.

  • Tom Stuart - "Automatic differentiation in Ruby"

    Finding the derivative of a mathematical function on a computer can be difficult, but there’s a clever trick that makes it easy: first write a program that computes the function, then execute it under a non-standard interpretation of its values and operations. In this talk I’ll show you how that works in Ruby.

Pub

There's bound to be something to talk about after all those talks and we now have two options for winding down the evening and chatting to other LRUG attendees:

  1. Stay at Code Node where Skills Matter have a cash bar and you can mingle with attendees of other meetups held that night.
  2. Take the short walk to the Singer Tavern (located at 1 City Road, EC1Y 1AG) where you can get some food to chew over along with the discussions spurred by the talks.

Talks should finish at about 8pm so if you can't make it along earlier feel free to come along to either venue afterwards to hang out.

The January 2016 meeting of LRUG will be on Monday the 11th of January, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm (talks start at 6:30pm). The venue, Code Node between Moorgate and Liverpool St. stations, is provided by Skills Matter. Full venue and registration details are given below.

Agenda

From monolith to microservices: A true story

Andy White wants to tell us about the microservices architecture they use at Quill Content:

How we moved from a huge Rails monolith to small microservices - the how and the why.

The journey to Primed.is

Neil Robertson & Jake Prime want to tell us about Primed.is. First Neil will quickly introduce us to Primed.is:

Primed.is - improving recruitment pain

Recruitment is a pain, isn't it? Does it have to be this way? We say 'no' and we want to show you why. Primed.is a web application to tackle common recruitment problems and we can't wait to tell you all about it.

Then Jake will talk to us about his journey while building it:

A Guide to Becoming a Ruby on Rails Developer

After working as a Flash developer and team lead for 10 years I have switched to become a Ruby on Rails developer to build our new product, Primed. This is the talk I would like to have heard a year ago when I was beginning that journey.

Using direnv with ruby and 12factor apps

Jonas Pfenniger Chevalier will show us a new environment switcher tool he's written called direnv:

direnv is a language-agnostic environment switching tool that I wrote a 5 years ago and still use every day.

This talk is going to present the tool and it's capabilities, and then explore how it can be used by ruby developers. Hopefully it will be useful to you in the everyday life as a developer, or just spark some interesting conversations.

Pub

After the talks we like to wind down with food and drinks at:

Singer Tavern

Agenda

Festive CodeWarsJam

Sam Joseph is going to lead us through a practical exercise he calls "CodeWarsJam". He describes it as follows:

A CodeWarsJam is a session where small teams of coders work on the same coding problem together. The problems are usually relatively simple and can be reviewed as a group every 20 minutes or so. Recently at MakersAcademy we've had great fun with CodeWarsJams, where we take coding kata from http://codewars.com and use them to run a CodeWarsJam. CodeWarsJam is great because when you solve a problem you get to see all the other variant solutions that others have coded, sorted by popularity. Come join the festive coding fun as LRUG's first CodeWarsJam!

Ticket Giveaway

Beyond

The organisers of Beyond, a conference aimed at junior developers in London on 23rd November, have provided a pair of free tickets for 1 lucky LRUG member and a discount code for £90 off the ticket price for everyone else. The tickets were be raffled off on our mailing list with the winners contacted on Friday 13th November. Thanks Beyond organisers!

Agenda

Hack like a journalist

Scott Matthewman says:

News reporters are trained in techniques to produce stories that are concise, well structured, easy to follow and with a consistent house style. How can those same techniques help us write better code?

Leveraging immutability in Ruby

Lorenzo Barasti says:

Why should we care about using immutable objects in our code? What does functional programming have to do with immutability? How do we approach immutability when the frameworks and libraries we use seem to go a different direction?

We'll try to answer these questions by looking at the ideas behind the implementation of some immutable data structure.

No-Man’s Land - Finding peace at the border of art and tech

Kevin Monk and Simon Sharville :

However good the underlying tech, ugly applications discourage users, pretty ones will attract them. A gulf exists between the artists and the technicians who need to bring those designs to life. Co-presented by a graphic designer and a developer, we’ll discuss our approach to keeping both artists and technicians within their comfort zone to create applications that work well AND look good.

Pub

When the talks end we head over to a local pub to grab some food, a drink, and discuss the talks we've just seen and other goings-on in the Ruby community. The pub is:

Singer Tavern
1 City Road

Debugging and fixing performance issues with the mustache gem and partials

Alice Bartlett and Dom Baggott say:

A quick blast through encountering a feature with performance in the mustache gem. How we debugged it and how we fixed it. This talk will be a bit less boring than it sounds.

API-first banking

Jonas Huckestein says:

What would you build on top of your bank if it had a REST API & Webhooks? At Mondo, we're looking forward to finding out. Our API (plus Ruby client library) is in beta (docs here), and we hosted our first hackathon a couple of weeks ago. Come along to find out what people built!

ActiveRecord vs N+1

Stanisław Klajn says:

In this talk would like to focus on dealing with N+1: how to detect it, how to get rid of it and, most importantly, how to avoid it.

Book Giveaway

Agenda

A pull request slackbot : the seal

Tatiana Soukiassian says:

As part of my 20% project at GDS, I developed a Slackbot that reminds developers of their team's pull requests that are awaiting review. I will talk about why and how the seal was built, and what I learned from building it.

Containers Patterns for Rails

Jairo Diaz says:

In this talk we explore how to use docker containers to run ruby on rails applications. Rails applications usually require several different components such as Nginx, Redis, MySQL, Mongo and background jobs. We will show how to set up and manage the configuration of these elements.

Learning through blameless reviews

Joel Chippindale says:

In this talk I will outline some of the ways that teams react to the mistakes they make and how blameless reviews can help teams learn from these mistakes

Agenda

Hello, declarative world

Tom Stuart says:

Ruby’s billed as a “multi-paradigm” language, but, let’s face it, we use it to write imperative object-oriented programs. I'm interested in different ways of programming computers, because I reckon imperative programs are far too low-level and overspecified, which is why as a species we're generally terrible at writing them. In this talk I want to encourage you to think outside of your normal programming habits; I’ll present a more abstract and declarative style called relational programming, and show you how to implement a minimal relational language in Ruby. (Dog whistle: this is μkanren.)

Domain Driven Design, In the Wild

Chris Patuzzo says:

Every day, we write software that solves business problems. How we actually do that is largely up to us. We tend to build models that encapsulate complexity and provide abstractions that help us reason about the problems we solve.

We stress our models with incremental development. Changing business requirements challenge the durability of our models. The magnitude of change is an indicator for the effectiveness of our models' ability to represent the problem domain.

At Which? we used Domain Driven Design to deliver our most recent project. In this talk, I will share those insights. I aim to cut through the jargon and give concrete, real-world examples of how we applied the principles of DDD to build a product that anticipates change.

Ticket Giveaway

container.camp

The organisers of container.camp, a conference about software virtualization to be held in London on 11th September, were kind enough to get in touch and provide a free ticket to their conference and a discount code for everyone. The ticket was raffled off on our mailing list with the winners contacted on Friday 7th August. Thanks container.camp organisers!

Agenda

LEARNING HOW TO LEARN RUBY (and rails, and sinatra, and …)

Sam Joseph says:

At Makers Academy we coach students through the process of learning Ruby, Sinatra, Rails, JavaScript, JQuery and Angular over the course of 12 weeks. Students range in age from 18 to 60, although the majority are in their late 20s or early 30s, already have university degrees (often a humanities subject) and have spent 5+ years in the workplace doing sales, marketing, design, management or some other relatively non-technical role. The majority of students have also had almost no programming experience prior to their preparation for the interview and selection process that they must go through to get on the course. In this talk I will explore what makes a 12 week intensive bootcamp tick, and the particular challenges the students face with learning Ruby and JavaScript.

Flaky tests & Capybara best practices

Karlotcha Hoa says:

One of the main purposes of testing is to enable us to trust the performance of our code in an automated way. Unfortunately, several problems often arise with automated tests. One common and particularly annoying problem that we began experiencing in our codebase was flakiness.

In this talk, I will discuss common problems that may cause this issue, and some solutions we discovered based on our own experience at SimplyBusiness.

Pub

The talks will end at 8pm and we'll head to The Fellow shortly after. We've reserved the entire first floor, so if you can't make the talks but want to hang out with some rubyists afterwards, head on over and climb the stairs to say "hi".

Agenda

Redis is the answer, what's the question?

Garry Shutler says:

There are very few things that are part of my go-to toolbox, but Redis is one of those things. I don't think there's a better, more flexible piece of infrastructure you can have at your disposal.

I'll cover the very basics of using Redis and general patterns that you can use within your own systems. I'll also share some concrete examples of what we've used it for at Cronofy.

Ruby Magic

As a child, Andrew McDonough loved magic. One of the best Christmas presents he ever received was a magic set. As an adult, Andrew prefers to perform magic using Ruby. In this talk, he will attempt an array of traditional magic tricks, using only IRB.

Test Bisection with RSpec

Simon Coffey says:

I'll talk about a useful technique for debugging order-dependent test failures, and introduce an upcoming feature in RSpec that automates it.

Pub

All those talks will take us to about 8pm, after which we leave Skills Matter's offices and head over to The Slaughtered Lamb to continue the meeting. While we ask you to register for the talks, there's no need to do so for this pub part; feel free to turn up even if you don't make it for the talks.

Agenda

Rewriting Code and Culture

Sabrina Leandro says:

This is the story of a company that survived a much needed transformation of its product and codebase, but most importantly, of its culture. There's no real prescription for being agile. It's about the journey a team takes to discover how to best work together and deliver great products.

In this presentation, I'll share a candid view of a team trying to overcome a slow product development process. How we refactored our way out of badly coupled code, moved to continuous deployment, and greatly improved our approach to product and software development.

Rails New Way

Kamil Lelonek is going to talk about building modern, maintainable and robust Rails applications. He asks:

  • Why a conventional Rails architecture fails?
  • What price do we pay for Rails’ simplicity?
  • Why Rails tries to solve complex problems in one monolithic class?
  • Should we follow the Rails way or drop Rails at all?

With presented building blocks he'll try to help solve common problems in current Rails applications.

Book Giveaway

Infinitium Global

The nice people at Infinitium Global have arranged to make 20 copies of David A. Black's "The Well Grounded Rubyist 2nd Edition" available to LRUG members and we'll be handing them out at this meeting. We used our mailing list to allocate each book to a lucky LRUG member on a first-come, first-served basis. Infinitium are hoping to make this a regular event, so if you'd like to be in with a chance of getting your hands on a book in the future you should sign up to our mailing list.

Pub

Our talks usually end at about 8pm after which many members can be found at The Slaughtered Lamb chatting about what they just learned and other goings-on in the ruby world. The pub is large and has a good menu of food and drinks (alcoholic and non) so all are welcome, even if you were unable to attend the talks.
