You can be part of the difference: dealing with bad players in communities

We all talk about how toxic people get into positions of power and the bad they do. But we rarely talk about how to deal with them.

This talk focuses on mental frameworks to deal with such situations. It also introduces the assumption that toxicity can be perceivedaccidental and deliberate - all of which need different methods to approach. It also focuses on techniques that can be applied outside of the classic community leader chain.

Main Talk #2 - Brandon Weaver 

Staff Eng / Ruby Lead / Global Neurodiversity Chair at Square. Autistic / ADHD, He / Him. I'm the Lemur guy.

Learning Pattern Matching through Poker

Ruby 2.7 introduced Pattern Matching, but what can you use it for? How about we play a few hands of poker to find out.

This talk explores Pattern Matching patterns through scoring poker hands. If you've been waiting for some practical examples of Pattern Matching this is your talk.
