The Ruby Usergroup Berlin is a usergroup, group of interest or just a bunch of people loving Ruby. Get in contact with us at our next meetup! Newbees are always welcome.
You're welcome wherever you're from as long as you adhere to our Code of Conduct - the meetup is in English.
Current schedule is two ~20min talks including Q&A, followed by splitting the audience into smaller groups for virtually hanging out (optional) :)
Main Talk #1 - New dev, old codebase: A series of mentorship stories by Ramón Huidobro Mentorship in software development carries a lot of responsibility, but plays an integral part in making tech communities as well as individuals thrive.
In this talk, we'll go over some of my mentorship experiences, adopting techniques and learning to teach, so we can teach to learn. Anyone can be a great mentor!
Main Talk #2 - Jemma Issroff - Intro to Ruby Memoization
A few years ago, I was tracking down a gnarly performance spike. Overnight, a job that usually took minutes had spiked to take almost a full hour. The culprit? A misuse of ||= in an attempt to memoize a value.
What is memoization? When is it useful? When can we not use memoization? How can we memoize effectively in Ruby? We'll discuss all of these questions and more in this talk.
