Hello everyone,

we're back with another remote-friendly Ruby User Group! The time is 19:00 CET so that's 18:00 UTC or well 6pm 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

Join Zoom Meeting

https://contentful.zoom.us/j/91261008993?pwd=RW9CcWdwQnQ2NkFwSmZiV2N6UHU5UT09

Meeting ID: 912 6100 8993

Passcode: 322025

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 the best engineering teams

Technical debt can be really overwhelming. Often when you start to address it, you realize you’re only just scratching the tip of the iceberg. 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.

Game Development using DragonRuby Game Toolkit

Amir Rajan is a critically acclaimed indie game dev with titles on iOS, Android, and the Nintendo Switch. All of his games are built in Ruby! Amir will talk about how he was able to accomplish this :-)

Bridgetown: Ruby on the Jamstack, or, Why I Forked Jekyll

You might be familiar with the granddaddy of SSGs, Jekyll, which is written in Ruby. But in recent years as the static-first approach to building websites and even webapps has exploded (aka the Jamstack), Jekyll has languished and Ruby has been left behind. So in the spring of 2020, I decided to fork Jekyll and put Ruby back on the Jamstack map. That project is Bridgetown! Find out how it's been going and how the community has been growing, and what's next for Bridgetown in 2021.
