Reactive Development and Operations in Ruby
Reactive Programming, as stated in its manifesto, proposes the development of systems that are "Responsive, Resilient, Elastic and Message Oriented". Considering these properties desirable to any software, why not apply them to operations software as we do to applications?Buy ticket
This is a tutorial about reactive development and infrastructure as code. It assumes only a basic understanding of the Ruby programming language and fundamental AWS services, such as S3 and EC2. Understanding of Reactive Programming with the Rx.rb library is also helpful, but you can pick it up as you go.
There are four sections in this tutorial. First, we'll write a simple reactive application and the deployment scripts to publish it to Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2. Then we'll improve the administration of the system using Elastic Beanstalk. Afterwards, we'll add a reactive and scalable data tier using DynamoDB. Then it's time to move beyond EC2 to managed services, such as Amazon Kinesis. Finally, we'll conclude with takeaways and followups.
Concluding this tutorial, you will have the practice and the code to deploy responsive, resilient, elastic and message oriented applications using Ruby. From dev to ops. More

Architecture Matters: An Appetizing Introduction to Trailblazer
Trailblazer is an extension framework on top of Rails. It provides desperately needed, new abstraction layers, decent encapsulation and a better maintainable architecture. In this workshop we're gonna learn the basics about designing your domain, encapsulating business logic in operations, form objects and view models, and a different take on the persistence layer.Buy ticket
After a compact introducing presentation by Celso Fernandes and Nick Sutterer, we'll dive into the code, write a small Trailblazer/Rails app and learn all the nice things about this alternative architecture over a cold bottle of beer. More
