Rack::Attack: Protect your app with this one weird gem!

A session at RailsConf 2014

Tuesday 22nd April, 2014

11:50am to 12:30pm (CST)

Mature apps face problems with abusive requests like misbehaving users, malicious hackers, and naive scrapers. Too often they drain developer productivity and happiness.

Rack::Attack is middleware to easily throttle abusive requests.

At Kickstarter, we built it to keep our site fast and reliable with little effort. Learn how Rack::Attack works through examples from kickstarter.com. Spend less time dealing with bad apples, and more time on the fun stuff.
