From 'Rails' to 'Release'
Location: Ballroom II Level: Novice
In this session, I’ll talk about the importance of various aspects of Rails project development with an emphasis on releasing finished apps.
In the past year, I’ve managed the development of and released 9 production Rails apps, including http://railsdevelopment.com for Engine Yard, http://useketchup.com for myself and http://eason.ie for Ireland’s largest bookstore.
I will talk about the importance of the team, the mind, the skillset, tools, documentation, deciding what’s important, patterns, design, clean code, releasing early and responding quickly to feedback.
I’ll back everything up with direct, repeated experience trying out various techniques, tools and methods for getting software from concept to released.
I think this session will be valuable for anyone developing user facing Rails apps.
I really try to engage the audience when I present. I hand-drew all the slides for my Rails Underground talk last year… I like to keep the flow going, and to keep the pace quite fast and exciting.
Paul is a Rails Developer from Dublin. He is working on his own startup idea, Ketchup, http://useketchup.com, as well as projects for Engine Yard for example the Rails Development Directory http://railsdevelopment.com
