Montreal 2017 sessions

Ruby for the Industry

English session - Intermediate

Ruby is very well known in the developer community because of the Rails framework, however Ruby is also useful for industry applications, here I'm going to share with you a pet project that I did with my Dad on weighing scales for the mass production industry, and why ruby's flexibility makes it perfect to solve real world problems. I also show how we packaged a small Sinatra app into an executable file for Windows. This talk is for everyone.

Why we left MongoDB?

English session - Intermediate

Around 2012 and 2013 MongoDB was the database of choice for many developers to start new projects, since it was the "coolest" database solution available. I want to show you how those decisions have had an impact on startups like Queue (where I work), and why we decided to leave MongoDB for good and transition to a relational database.
