Rails in the Large

A session at RubyNation 2010

While others have been debating whether Rails can scale to enterprise levels, Neal Ford has been demonstrating it. His company, ThoughtWorks, is running one of the largest Rails projects in the world, for an Enterprise. This talk discusses tactics, techniques, best practices, and other things Neil has learned from scaling rails development. He discusses infrastructure, testing, messaging, optimization, performance, and the results of lots of lessons learned, including killer rock-scissors-paper tricks to help you avoid babysitting the view tests!
