This month I spoke at the Pittsburgh Ruby Brigade meeting. I was nervous at first getting up there in front of a couple dozen people and giving a presentation but all in all I think it went well.
Yep. I’ll be there! Loved it last year and looking forward to it this year as well. Hosted by EdgeCase, it’s a conference that presents Ruby and Ruby on Rails as a solution for the enterprise. Held in Columbus, OH, it’s relatively close to home for me, which makes it convenient, and the lineup of speakers is great. See the erubycon site for more information, and better yet, register while you’re there. Early registration ends Monday and is $250, but even at the full price of $299 it’s still well worth attending.
Below is a short presentation I gave to my team about Nanite and the benefits of using it for background processing. Unfortunately the slide show notes are not available but at least you can get an idea of what I talked about and where I got my information.
The application that I work on, written in Ruby on Rails, was previously using BackgrounDRb for its background processing but we have decided to give Nanite a try because of its flexibility and scalability. I’ve been very pleased so far with the choice.
