August Meetup 2014hosted by Tobias Pfeiffer by cognita (cognita.ch), 07.08.2014 at 19:30
It's time form our August meetup! Still in town from eurucamp? Great! Join us and meet some more Berlin Rubyists, listen to some talks and hang out!
The company is in the second backyard, but there will be many signs pointing you in the right direction :)
We are building a easy to use email crypto system, which will run on ARM-class hardware. (read more on https://kinko.me)
As a long time rubyist (and rug::b-ist) I would like to tell about the experiences with ruby on hardware of that class, will tell where we are using ruby and where not, and highlight the reasons for our decisions.
This talk will last for ~20 minutes. The perfect date would be the August meeting. (I can't make July.)
As developers we often start out with an idealistic view how to build this nice system to solve our business needs and end up with a very complex, coupled and hard to maintain system. In this talk I would like to elaborate on building simple vs complex systems and give some advice on how to avoid the "big ball of mud" coming to live.
The talk is designed to last about 20 minutes.
