Tech Talk: Is Ruby Dead? | July 26 | Berlin
Honeypot’s next tech talk will focus on the topic of Ruby. Come and meet us at WeWork Sony Center to learn more… We’ll start with a talk introducing Amr Abdel-Wahab, contextualizing the question of privilege.
7.10pm: Welcome from Honeypot and WeWork
7.20pm: An empathy exercise: contextualizing the question of privilege
Amr Abdel-Wahab, Senior Software Engineer at MODOMOTO
Do you believe political correctness and empathy are buzzwords that limit the society rather than contribute to its advancement? Do you think to talk about topics like diversity quotas, privilege doesn’t make much sense, and you would rather spend this time talking about the latest in technology?
In this talk as a fellow developer, I would like to take a challenge of walking you through the missing contexts regarding these topics and its contribution to your project’s success.
7.50pm: Let’s test that real quick
Jan Stępień, Senior Consultant at INNOQ
Property-based testing changes the way we look at our test suites. Instead of specifying test cases one after another, this advanced testing technique enables us to automatically generate a stream of inputs. Despite its potential, property-based testing still remains under the radar within the Ruby community. Let’s try to uncover its strengths together.
The talk will discuss how property-based testing compares to traditional testing methods and demonstrate its principles with simple examples. In order to bust the myth of the inapplicability of property-based testing in a real-world setting, we’ll bring up some use cases from industry. Finally, we’ll wander into the world of concurrency and the automation of race condition detection.
8.20pm: Drinks and Chill
We are looking forward to seeing you there for some beers, bites, cheers, and interesting talks!
