RailsConf EuropeMichael Bleigh will be presenting our RailsConf Europe talk: Hacking the Mid-End: Unobtrusive Scripting and Advanced UI Techniques in Rails, on September 3rd. Here's the talk overview:
Then, immediately after my talk, I'll board my plane to head off to..
The Lone Star Ruby Conference
Maybe you inherited a mess of a Rails project – or perhaps your own codebase is poorly-tested, not very DRY, or just generally confusing. Worse yet, maybe your Rails site has slowed down to a crawl or even stopped working entirely. Whatever the reason, it’s time to consider refactoring these rough spots and boosting your site’s performance.
In the first half of the day we’ll go through real-life examples of (shameful) code we’ve written and refactored, give tips on how and when to start, and show you how to avoid the need for a future refactor. In the second half, we’ll introduce common Rails performance pitfalls, how to diagnose them, and how to solve them. We’ll also talk about other ways to speed up your app.
If you're attending either conference, stop by and say hi!
