Maintainable Ruby on Rails

A session at Los Angeles Ruby Conference 2012

Saturday 4th February, 2012

3:30pm to 4:00pm (UTC)

As we enter a decade of applications developed with Ruby on Rails, many teams are starting to feel growing pains relating to design decisions that were made in the past. Development slows down, and morale declines. Fresh competitors without the cruft of legacy code slowing them down easily deliver new features.

This change of speed is not a natural part of the growth of a software project, but a common symptom of the design decisions made, and techniques practiced, to develop the software in the first place.

In this talk you will learn how to identify common (and not so common) issues that teams face as their applications age. You will learn about principles of software design, techniques, and practices to solve these problems. You will also gain valuable knowledge about how to make your software more maintainable and extensible to ensure you don't run into these problems in the future.
