Hello everyone,

we're back with another remote-friendly Ruby User Group! The time is 19:00 CEST so that's 17:00 UTC or well 5pm UTC.

You're welcome wherever you're from as long as you adhere to our Code of Conduct - the meetup is in English.

Current schedule is two ~20min talks including Q&A, followed by splitting the audience into smaller groups for virtually hanging out (optional) :)

Joining the meetup

Meeting Link

Meeting ID: 973 1192 8829

Passcode: 683381

The meetup will be on zoom and it will be recorded

  • if you don't want your video to be visible to others, then turn it off/leave it off
  • if you can't make it/don't want to be on zoom, watch the recording!

We're aware of the privacy concerns surrounding zoom and we share them. We're looking for better tools, we haven't found them yet.

Meanwhile, if you don't want to use the desktop client the zoom browser link above should work for you. If it doesn't you can usually get to it like this: the join link should also show a tiny join from browser link at the bottom of the window. It doesn't appear to require an account anymore. If the link doesn't show up, open the Download and Install Zoom link in a separate tab, that should make the link appear. Dark UI patterns 😖

Participating in the meetup

  • We'll take Q&A questions in Zoom via the raise hand feature (click on participants, there's a little raise hand link)
  • There is also a #rugb-live channel in the Ruby Berlin Slack, you can join the slack here
  • the socializing part is optional, naturally, our aim is to not lose that part of our meetup - we'll try to use Zoom's breakout feature to split you into random groups and give you some ice breaker questions to kick it off

Patience

Your feedback is very welcome. Things will go wrong, we'll try to fix them.

See you

Looking forward to see y'all Rubyists from Berlin and maybe all over the world.

Amr, Pascal & Tobi

Using VCR to Mock Your Requests

VCR is a tool that I've been using quite often now to mock test requests. But was a bit tricky to find out how it works, so I want to share the knowledge I've been gathering in the past months to explain a bit about VCR.

Seeding Data In Ruby On Rails

Seeding can make a developers experience exponentially better, however it's very rare to find amazing seeds in a project.

In this talk I cover why you should use seeds, along with approaches to make seeding easier.
