Be Awesome. Tackle Big League Problems at WindyCityRails05 Aug 2014
Do you see yourself in any of these scenarios?
You have already built a successful Rails app. Now that you’re “done”, you know you can make it better, but you’re not sure how. You want to take your skills to the next level.
You are no longer a beginner. You have seen advanced developers in action, and you are determined to get there yourself.
Software development is relatively new to you, and you built a successful track record in another profession. You want to meet people who can help you accelerate through the beginner phase so you can launch something useful.
Common thread: It’s time to unleash the awesomeness in your bones. You want to take your skills to the next level, and you are ready to tackle Big League Problems. WindyCityRails is for you.
What are Big League Problems?
You might think of a big league problem as a good problem. For example, the Rails app you built is pulling in customers, and you’re bumping into the limits of your software architecture. Who knew that so many people would buy from you?
Now… How do you scale? Do you buy more hardware, change your architecture, choose a new platform, or some combination of these? Dr. Nic Williams, Brian Shirai, Evan Light, Mark Menard deal with scaling problems. Learn from them.
Maybe you built a gem to solve a problem for yourself, and now you want to release your gem to the world. What legal questions do you need to consider? Did Rails face similar challenges in the beginning? Daliah Saper is an attorney who specializes in intellectual property and other open source software issues. Put her team to work for you.
How about security? Have you outgrown the
Devise gem? Or do you simply need to know more about
Devise internals so that you can use it more effectively? Maybe it’s time to abandon username/password logins altogether and go with SQRL. Justin Love and Lucas Mazza might have some ideas for you.
