19:00 〜 19:30 Doors open
Grab a drink and catch up with your fellow Rubyists.
19:30 〜 20:00 Tests should be fast: why and how? Masafumi Okura
I'm sure some of you struggled with slow tests. Slow tests are bad because tests give us important feedback and are crucial part of our development process. It's worth fixing the slow tests, but the problem is that we don't share how to fix them. In this talk, I'll share the background, the tools, and examples of fixing slow tests.
Masafumi is a freelance software developer mainly focusing on Ruby and Rails. He's a staff of some software events including VimConf. He sometimes gave short talks at regional Ruby communities and meetups. His current interest is productivity and craftsmanship.
20:00 〜 20:30 Rubyist show and tell
Do you have a cool snippet of Ruby code that you'd like to share, but it doesn't warrant an entire presentation? A challenge with your Ruby application you've been struggling with, and would like some advice? A helpful library or tool you've come across? This is your chance to share it.
For those who'd like to participate, you'll have up to five minutes. There's no need to create a slide deck, but you'll be able to use the projector if you have a code sample or something else to share. While we'll ask you if you'd like to participate when signing up, this is just to gauge interest, and you can change your mind on the day of the event.
20:30 〜 21:30 Open Networking
Discuss the presentations or anything else Ruby related with the other attendees.
PIXTA's engineers use Ruby on Rails to build their stock photo marketplace, and are looking for developers to join their team. You can learn more about what they're working on through their engineering blog.
