SD Ruby Monthly Meetup

August 4th, 2016 at 7:30PM

University of California San Diego, San Diego, CA

Brad Urani from Procore gives his talk "Jaywalking in Traffic: Safe Migrations at Scale." At scale, easy things become hard. Migrations, especially, can become dangerously unpredictable if you don't understand the traps inherent. This talk will cover problems that occur with migrations at scale, and what to do about them. We'll talk about the ActiveRecord schema cache and how to reset it, and about Postgres locking and how it can take down your site. We'll see which types of migrations require downtime and which ones don't, and what order your migrations need to run in to make them safe. Whether you operate at scale or not, this talk will teach you plenty about Rails, databases, and how to avoid catastrophe the next time you deploy.

Ruby on Rails Monthly Meetup: ActiveRecord vs Ecto: A Tale of Two ORMs

Join us Procore's Brad Urani as he compares ActiveRecord from Rails with Ecto from Phoenix, a web framework for Elixir. Comparing the same app implemented in both, you'll see why even with two different web frameworks in two different programming languages, it's the differing ORM designs that most affect the result. This tale of compromises and tradeoffs, where no abstraction is perfect, will teach you how to pick the right ORM for your next project, and how to make the best of the one you already use.

Mounting Rails Engines

April 9th, 2014 at 6:30PM

Procore Technologies, Santa Barbara, CA

At Procore, we have started to transition our tools into Rails Engines. Engines have helped us achieve the separation of responsibility we’ve been pushing for in our code base, as well as put us in a position to potentially sell the individual tools that make up our application. Sometimes engines are a good idea, and sometimes they’re not. We’ll show you when we think engines are appropriate, the small iterative steps we took to transition our existing tools into engines, and how to create new engines for new services.Please join us at the Procore office. Food and drinks will be provided.
