Jeremy McAnally
Principal, Arcturo

Website | @jm | Attendee Directory Profile

Jeremy has been developing applications with Ruby and Rails for a little over 5 years, but before that he tortured himself with PHP, C#, Python, VB, and other instruments of destruction. After finding the light, he worked with Ruby for a while and penned Mr. Neighborly’s Humble Little Ruby Book (soon to be published by No Starch). Since then he has continued writing software, books (such as Ruby in Practice for Manning and the Rails 3 Upgrade Handbook), open-source code (such as dcov, context, and more), presentations for numerous Ruby conferences and user groups, blogs at http://omgbloglol.com, and basically done anything he can to sharpen his Ruby (and Rails)-Fu. He likes good food, good times, and a nap on Sunday afternoons.

This talk is a discussion of those tough decisions that Rails developers (new and old) face each day. What test framework should I use (and why should I care)? Does my templating system really make it harder for my designer to work? Is Bundler really essential? Two veteran Rails developers will discuss the benefits and tradeoffs (and share their own toolkit choices). Read more.
