  Hyatt Regency
Registration 8.30 AM to 9.15 AM  
Kickoff 9.15 AM to 9.30 AM  
Keynote by
Ernie Miller
9.30 AM to 10.15 AM
Programming in the large - designing with Interfaces by
Aditya Godbole
10.15 AM to 10.45 AM
Software design is about people. As the development team size grows, the strengths of Ruby start becoming its weaknesses. In this talk, we will see how we can deal with this problem.
Tea Break 10.45 AM to 11.15 AM  
Phoenix for Rubyists by
Mike North
11.15 AM to 11.45 AM
Because Elixir and Phoenix borrow so many good ideas from the Rails ecosystem, it’s astoundingly easy for Ruby developers to become proficient in this powerful new set of tools. First, I’ll introduce Phoenix from a Rails POV, and then show two ways it can be used in conjunction with Rails.
Lost while developing API's in Rails? by
Pramod Shinde
11.45 AM to 12.15 PM
As web development is leaning towards single page application’s with JS framework’s, scalable API’s are now critical. I will be talking about the WHAT, WHY and HOW of RoR JSON API’s. You will also see how to build generic API’s to serve web and mobile platforms.
It's fun to compute by
Julian Cheal
12.15 PM to 12.45 PM
Come with us now on a journey through time and space. As we explore the world of analog/digital synthesis. From computer generated music to physical synthesisers and everything in between.
So you want to write music with code, but don’t know the difference between an LFO, ADSR, LMFAO, etc. Or a Sine wave, Saw wave, Google wave. We’ll explore what these mean, and how Ruby can be used to make awesome sounds. Ever wondered what Fizz Buzz sounds like, or which sounds better bubble sort or quick sort? So hey Ruby, let’s make music!
Lunch Break 12.45 PM to 2 PM  
Open Source: Power and the Passion by
Pat Allan
2 PM to 2.30 PM
You likely use open source software every day: in your code, tools, and servers. But is it the stable foundation we expected? Let’s look at the strengths & weaknesses of open source and trade in our assumptions for a greater awareness. Together let’s shape a more sustainable open source ecosystem!
Using multiple connections in ActiveRecord by
Arthur Neves
2.30 PM to 3 PM
Historically to handle multiple connections in Rails, you had to either patch active record or use a gem. Now, with some new apis on Rails 5.0, we can connect to multiple databases without needing any extra dependencies, and with just a few line of codes. And that will be even easier on Rails 5.1.
Tea Break 3 PM to 3.30 PM  
Lightening talks 3.30 PM to 4 PM  
Aila! Caching in Rails by
Santosh Wadghule
4 PM to 4.30 PM
I will be speaking on why caching is important and how we can scale up the Rails app using different caching strategies like page, action & fragment. I will also speak on how we can improve the performance in the simplest way by using instance variable caching for expensive command’s result.
How (Not) To Build & Scale Teams by
Jim Remsik
4.30 PM to 5 PM
Organizations time & again recognize desired results and attempt to achieve more success by doing more of the same. Two decades of experience and stories will show you what to look for and what to avoid in your next team whether your building it or being courted.
Open Hours 5 PM to 6 PM  
Party! 6.30 PM onwards  

7th August - Workshops

Architecture Matters! A Trailblazer workshop by
Nick Sutterer
10 AM to 4 PM 7th Floor, SICSR Atur Centre, Gokhale Cross Road, Model Colony, Pune, 411016
Trailblazer adds new abstraction layers to Rails. It introduces operations, form objects, policies and, of course, more. Why this is a good thing, and how additional abstractions help to master complex web applications you will learn in this full-day workshop.
Automate your Infrastructure with Chef by
Mohit Thatte, Sahil Muthoo
10 AM to 4 PM 7th Floor, SICSR Atur Centre, Gokhale Cross Road, Model Colony, Pune
This workshop will be a gentle introduction to the concepts of infrastructure automation with Chef. We will work on writing as much code as we can, so that attendees can get comfortable with the practical aspects of using Chef. The goal at the end of the workshop would be to be able to deploy a Rails app to AWS using your own Chef recipes and community cookbooks.
