Blythe Dunham is snowgiraffe, a Seattle based RoR consultant as well as co-founder and Architect at Spongecell. When she started working professionally with rails 3.5 years ago, some of her friends thought that “Ruby on Rails” was a new snowboarding trick. Specializing in back-end server and database development, Blythe has spent over a decade mediating disputes between ORM code and databases in a couple people languages and a bunch of computer languages. Very recently, she became a certified database whisper and spoke at this year’s MySQL conf. Many of these whispers and scalability optimizations have been open sourced as plugins and gems on github. Blythe is excited to share with you everything you want to know about SMS on Rails, and to demo her new engine plugin which will magically turn your app into an SMS machine.
