Driving Rails Deep Into the Back Office
Obie Fernandez, Senior Consultant, ThoughtWorks
Date: Wednesday, July 26
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
ThoughtWorks' leading Rails evangelist Obie Fernandez explores the challenges of pioneering new technology and approaches in a world dominated by cranky database administrators, inscrutable stored procedure code, and living up to the expectations of stability established by 30-year old mainframe systems.
This talk includes real world benchmarking results from Ruby systems deployed on enterprise-class hardware from IBM and Fujitsu and gives special emphasis to proven strategies for incremental change and leveraging the power and flexibility of custom authored domain-specific languages in Ruby as the key abstraction layer of successful systems integration.
