Join us for food, chatting with other Rubyists, and two awesome presentations!
Drop by and catch up with your fellow Rubyists. Please note, the doors will close at 19:30, so please arrive before then.
We'll serve a freshly cooked meal. Menu to follow, but we'll focus on plant based options to accommodate all diets.
Have you ever wanted to make a Rails application as slow as possible? Let's talk about all the ways you can sabotage a Rails application to make it so slow that no one will ever want to use it again!
Nate is the author of The Complete Guide to Rails Performance, and a co-maintainer of Puma. Nate teaches, trains and consults with companies around the world on making Rails apps as fast and scalable as possible.
Learn about using Puma with Rails in containers. We'll discuss advantages of using containers, highlighting the consistency, scalability, and isolation they offer, but also discuss common pitfalls of using containers that we fell into at TableCheck. The talk will have an emphasis on the importance of fine-tuning configurations for both Rails and Puma when using containers to ensure optimal resource utilization, responsiveness, and scalability.
Alexander Nicholson is a seasoned Site Reliability Engineer based in Tokyo, currently employed at TableCheck. His expertise spans across SRE, Data Operations, and AI. With a knack for scaling SRE platforms and teams, Alexander is an aficionado of Kubernetes, particularly AWS EKS and Helm, and is well-versed in container technologies like Docker, containerd, and Firecracker.
As an AWS maestro, he engages in AWS tasks daily, boasting extensive experience in public cloud platforms, serverless development, and bare metal engineering. Beyond this, Alexander's developer side shines through; he's proficient in utilising ML (Python) and web frameworks (Ruby / Sinatra) to build customer-centric products. He's also dabbled in Rust and Elixir.
Discuss the presentations or anything else Ruby related with the other attendees.
We're recruiting volunteers to help out with checking in participants. Detailed instructions will follow, but basically you'll need to be available from 18:30 to 19:30, but can otherwise enjoy the event as a participant!
Tokyo Rubyist Meetup is a not for profit event. The fee you pay to attend helps cover the cost of the food we provide, and also ensures that we don't get a large number of no shows. We want people to be able to participate regardless of their financial situation, and so offer two ticket options. Choose whatever you feel is appropriate for yourself.
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 article on Tech Meetups in Tokyo), and have a discord server to discuss developer life here.
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.
Tokyo Rubyist Meetup is a safe and inclusive event. By attending, you agree to our code of conduct.
Tokyo Rubyist Meetup would love to have you give a talk at a future event. Talks can be anything related to Ruby, and can target anyone from a beginner to an expert. We're happy to help you plan your presentation, so if you have any interest, please get in contact with us, and let us know what you're interested in speaking about.
