ActiveSupport is the foundation for much of the code Ruby on Rails developers depend on. Many use these set of libraries every day, but few dive into to explore the jewels it contains. In this talk, Bryan Liles will highlight a few of the more interesting features of Active Support 3.
The session will start with what we had before ActiveSupport, and move on to the history of Rails to bring us to where we are today. Special emphasis will be placed on topics such as, Benchmarking, Accessors, Dependencies, and Instrumentation.
In this talk, everyone will learn something. There are quite a few beginner level topics, but the seasoned Ruby on Rails developer will most certainly be exposed to a tidbit they were unfamiliar with as well.
Bryan does a myriad of Ruby related tasks for his daytime job in a quaint little town near Baltimore, Maryland. No, that isn’t right. Bryan Liles is Greatest Man Alive! He hacks mad ruby. He trolls twitter. He is looking for the good fight.
He hasn’t written any books, and doesn’t maintain any major open source projects. Most of his time is spent helping others level up their awesomeness; trying to cause chaos with writings on his blog (I know you’ve heard of Smarticus the blog); or just being a great dad and husband. When he isn’t testing all the #$#%# time, he moves small mountains with his mind and trains at the local Baltimore Jedi academy.
Some came to lead. Some come to be lead. Bryan comes to smash the status quo.
