  • In the Loop

    by Lourens Naudé

    The recent boom in Event Driven components and tools such as node.js, EventMachine, 0MQ and Redis resulted in product dependencies often misunderstood by development teams. All these components address the need for efficiently shifting and processing data between network, disk, memory and CPU - they fill a very specific niche for high performance data services. In practice however they often make their way into complex, coarse grained services. In his talk Lourens will address several gotchas through low level instrumentation and other visual cues, context switching (pun intended) between EventMachine and Redis specific examples.

  • Actors on Stage

    by Elise

    In her talk she will explore several ways to implement the actor model in Ruby. The talk will also allude to the fact that threads in Ruby should ideally have separate state, so that all programs using threads could also use the actor model (or other similar concurrency models).

  • The Revenge of method_missing()

    by Paolo Perrotta

    Convinced that nobody can bully method_missing() and get away with it, Nusco resolved to present a talk about it. When is method_missing() appropriate, and when should you pick an alternative metaprogramming magic spell instead? Is method_missing() really dangerous? What are the common method_missing() pitfalls, and how can you avoid them?
