19:15 〜 19:35 How We Continuously Translate Tech Documents Yohei Yasukawa

RailsGuides is 1,400pages+ and RailsTutorial is 700pages+, so translating them is fraught with challenges. I'll share our knowledge and experience of how we're trying to keep them up-to-date, including how we got a commit bit from the rails/rails documentation team and how we make money from free documents.


Co-founder of Japanese RailsTutorial and RailsGuides. Committer to OpenSource Cafe and CoderDojo Japan. Runs YassLab, a small distributed company that works remotely, focusing on Ruby/Rails, education, and open source.

19:45 〜 20:15 A Highly Experimental Talk On Pair Programming Don Werve

The journey from technological infant to software engineering titan comes with a number of "level up" moments, where we grasp and internalize a concept that makes us drastically more effective as builders of software. Pair programming is one of those level-up concepts, but pairing effectively takes much more than just plunking two developers down at the same desk. Through an impractical demonstration on the hows and whys of pairing, we will explore how pairing goes bad, and how to keep it fresh, tasty, and nutritious.


Although originally designed by Apple in California as a durability-testing device for Macbooks, Don has spent the past six years working around the world as a software engineer and back-pocket CTO, helping companies solve tough team management and scaling issues. Don lives in Tokyo, and spends his spare time reading too many books, creating new forms of deliciousness in his kitchen, and searching for new and creative ways to injure himself with sporting equipment.

20:15 〜 21:30 Open Networking

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