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: TBA

Meeting ID: TBA

Passcode: TBA

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

How to deal with tech debt - Lessons learned from 200+ engineering teams

I have interviewed 200 top engineering teams to learn the perfect process to manage technical debt. In this talk, I will share my learnings: tactics, processes, and tools to use when dealing with small, medium, and large pieces of tech debt, and the approach you can take depending on your company’s stage, size, business priorities, and culture.

Catching invisible bugs

Hola ☀️

My name is Anatoli, I'm a Lead Engineer from Blinkist and a Maker of SQL Habit. 👋

I'm really excited to share my recent talk "Catching invisible errors" with you.

It's highly inspired by my last 5y with Blinkist. I've seen the company grow from 2 Heroku apps to 20+ microservices and have seen all sorts of errors in my 11y long career.

This talk is an overview of all possible errors your app (webapp/API/mobile app/serverless) can encounter and how to fix all of them, including the hardest type – invisible bugs. 🙀
