On Thursday, October 29, another of our monthly Ruby gatherings took place at Poligon. Yet again we were lucky to get a chance to listen to two truly great talks. If hanging out with Ruby friends isn’t one of the finer things in life, then I don’t know what is.
var self = this; again.
Second presenter, Ivan Nemytchenko, had the urge to travel all the way from Serbia to tell us to stop being a Rails developer. At first we were shocked, then we agreed! His intriguing talk was about how a developer needs to think outside the “Rails way” box as the complexity of an application grows. He pointed out a few valuable design patterns and techniques, such as using Form Objects, Repository and DDD principles, and a couple of other things that we could use to replace some of Rails’s standard ways and conventions when trying to tame the beastly complexity of a heavy app. Also, make sure not to miss brilliant graphics on his slides.
See you next time!
