Description

Please note that we're having the event at a new venue (Impact Hub Tokyo near Meguro station). Thanks to our sponsors tokyodev and Le Wagon Tokyo, this event will be free!

Agenda

19:00 〜 19:30 Doors open

Grab a drink and catch up with your fellow Rubyists.

19:30 〜 20:00 Creating a training sandbox for your Rails app Kevin Dias

This presentation will explore using the Apartment gem to create a training sandbox and seeding that sandbox with data using the Faker gem. Depending on your application this functionality could be useful for training, testing, or product demos.

I'll discuss the pros and cons of this strategy and why I chose this particular solution for the internal Rails app used at the company I work for.

Profile

I started learning Rails in 2012 and have experience building applications in the language learning, translation and medical space. I currently live in Tochigi and work remotely for a US healthcare company.

20:00 〜 20:30 Rubyist show and tell

Do you have a cool snippet of Ruby code that you'd like to share, but it doesn't warrant an entire presentation? A challenge with your Ruby application you've been struggling with, and would like some advice? A helpful library or tool you've come across? This is your chance to share it.

For those who'd like to participate, you'll have up to five minutes. There's no need to create a slide deck, but you'll be able to use the projector if you have a code sample or something else to share. While we'll ask you if you'd like to participate when signing up, this is just to gauge interest, and you can change your mind on the day of the event.

20:30 〜 21:30 Open Networking

Discuss the presentations or anything else Ruby related with the other attendees.

Food Sponsor

tokyodev helps international developers start and grow their career in Japan. We curate a list of developer jobs in Japan that don't require Japanese, write articles about being a developer here (including our recently published developer salary survey), and provide a forum to discuss the challenges of being a developer here.

Drink and Venue Sponsor

Le Wagon Tokyo is a coding school for startups, creative people and tech entrepreneurs. Our 9-week full-time or 24-week part-time Coding Bootcamps are designed for complete beginners or "half-beginners" who really want to dive into programming and, above all, change their mindset. Learn to think like a developer, consider issues with new insight, and become more autonomous thanks to these newly acquired abilities.
