I’m very excited to see some practical talks lined up for this year’s RailsConf. As SmartLogic’s Director of Development Operations, I’m closely involved in the overall progress and performance of all our client applications, and their technology stacks and server deployments are near and dear to my heart. My favorite topics this year are trending towards scaling, monitoring, and the best server side tools for the job. This probably isn’t a surprise given how much I talk about servers.
So these are 2 talks from each day that I’m most looking forward to right now:
Monitoring the Health of Your App
An Intervention for ActiveRecord
Using Elasticsearch with Rails Apps
Configuration Management Patterns
The Long Ball - Upgrading long lived Rails apps from 1.x-4.0
I’m also hoping to talk shop with anyone who wants to. I’d like to discuss story writing, backlog management, client iteration meetings, developer happiness, or anything else about your development process. So if you’d like to chat, reach out to me ([email protected], @danivovich) and let’s meet up for a meal or during a break.
