I wasn’t at Ruby Conf, but I followed it vicariously via various social media channels.

There is a huge amount of action in Ruby at the moment, including a ton of focus on performance.

Why do I need to know about threads?
My main purpose to discuss threads is not for the audience to start writing multithreaded code but to have a good idea of what is happening to their application when they are using multithreaded gems in their codebase.

Nowadays a good number of us are using Sidekiq for background processing or Puma as an efficient web server and I’m sure there will be more of such gems soon enough so I believe this makes it essential for us to know how our applications behave when we use such gems and how we can get the most out of them.

After participating (and winning) several hackathons over the years, I’ve come to appreciate how nicely Rails generates prototypes that build and deploy quickly. Hackathon champions will assert that the secret sauce to winning hackathons is building an actual product that has real validation from potential users. This is a hard goal to achieve when everyone is short on sleep and time. Rails will get your app there.

Here are my simple dos and don'ts for creating a winning Rails app at a hackathon

Ninefold was a sponsor of the 6th (and sadly last) Golden Gate Ruby Conference. While I was scheduled to be at the Ninefold booth on Saturday, I came to the conference towards the end of day on Friday specifically to hear Kate Heddleston’s talk. I’m the newest Rails Support Engineer to join Ninefold and a big advocate of developer bootcamps. Her talk sounded like it would be perfect for where I am in my career.
