Brandon and I are looking for speakers for August, September, and October.
Our group is an ideal spot if you're looking to develop a talk that you'll be proposing for RubyConf 2016, RailsConf 2017, or other conferences that accept Ruby-focused talks.
I would like to specifically invite and encourage anyone who has not presented to the group to consider presenting. Even if you're new to programming and Ruby, the possibilities are very, very good that you have a talk to develop and share with the group.
Some ideas to get the gears moving:
- The Ups and downs of working on your first full-time Ruby/Rails job and what you'd say to help the you of six months to a year ago
- An introduction to [Sinatra, Padrino, Hanami/Lotus]
- A non-web-based use of Ruby! (Scripting, batch processing), etc
- Ruby performance tuning. Walk us through discovering a need to get into garbage collection tuning and how you went about it
- Working with Ruby open source libraries. What did you build, why you built it, and why we should have a look
- Working with Rails 5
- Testing a Rails API
- Building a Rails API
- Pry (lots of discussion around that last talk so maybe we could go in-depth)
- Deploying a Rails app
- Working with ActiveRecord effectively and efficiently
Your specific ideas are a lot better than what we can think of abstractly.
