As Rails becomes more mainstream, businesses are now taking a second look at Rails for their e-commerce needs. Join our panel of experts as we discuss a range of possible solutions. We will discuss the merits of using an existing Framework (Spree), using third party services (Shopify and Spreedly) or building your own (Gilt.)
No threads, no callbacks, just pure IO scheduling with Ruby 1.9, Fibers, and Eventmachine. All the nice things we love about writing synchronous code, but completely asynchronous under the covers – the best of both worlds. A hands on look at the architecture, mechanics, and involved libraries towards creating the next generation Ruby web-servers.
We would like to announce DataMapper 1.0 here at Railsconf 2010. DataMapper 1.0 marks an important release that has seen a lot of development over the last two years. DataMapper is storage engine agnostic and also allows for mixing for example SQL and No-SQL engines, using the best tools for the job.
There is so much data on the cloud, but finding the best way to access
it can be a challenge. This talk will discuss the options to securely
access Google Data APIs and provide a Federated Login for Google Apps
and Google Account Users. We'll also provide you with an overview of
OpenID and related protocols.
RVM is a command line tool which allows us to easily work with multiple ruby interpreters and sets of gems. We will explore the use of rvm to manage rubies for development needs like coding, continuous integration, quality assurance, and production on a per project basis.
EventMachine is an implementation of the Reactor pattern for Ruby, similar to Python's Twisted. It provides event-driven I/O for MRI, YARV, Rubinius and JRuby, allowing a simple Ruby application to serve thousands of network connections concurrently.
This talk will cover the basics of EventMachine, with an emphasis on the common stumbling blocks encountered by new users
Redis is fast. Rails is good. Resque is cheap. It's a match made in heaven.
Learn how to use Resque with Rails, how GitHub processes background jobs, and why Redis makes it blissful.
We'll compare Resque to other solutions, discuss design patterns, and review the plugins that add infrastructure.
More and more Rails apps are being deployed to App Engine. Generated AR scaffolding works unaltered with DataMapper, and critical gems like redcloth and mechanize are working too. Spin-up time is less of an issue, and Duby has matured to provide unprecedented performance. Our latest development tools make the development process painless. Best of all, it's free to get started.
Hype is everywhere. Whether it's the latest NoSQL db that's going to magically scale your app, or the newest best practice that's going to prevent you from writing bad code.
As early adopters, we've tried a lot of this stuff. We've even put it in to production under real load. In this talk, I'll tell you what worked and what didn't. There are no sacred cows - not even rails.
