19:30 〜 19:50 NATS for Rubyists Waldemar Quevedo

NATS is a high performance messaging system that was originally created as part of CloudFoundry but since then it has grown its own ecosystem and community around it, and also recently included as part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

Similar to Ruby, one of the goals from NATS is to make building messaging based applications as simple and reliable as possible. In this talk, we will cover why NATS might be interesting to consider for your next project and share some of the lessons learned so far from maintaining the Ruby clients from NATS.


Wally is a Software Engineer at Synadia Communications, Inc, where he works on the NATS project is also maintainer of the Ruby, Go and Python client libraries. Before he was at Apcera where he developed a container orchestration system that used NATS for its control plane and Rakuten where he operated large CloudFoundry clusters.

20:00 〜 20:20 Designing Practical RESTful APIs Hiroshi Ogino

When designing an API, we need to do so in a way that is beneficial to developers, and ultimately allows us to deliver value to our customers. This presentation will explore what a RESTful API is, and give practical examples highlighting some of the common design decisions.


Hiroshi (@ogin_s57) is a web developer at HeartRails, and founder of @yurufuwarb. His passions are writing, and using technology to delight people.

20:30 〜 21:30 Open Networking

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