Translating With Mobility, by Chris Salzberg

Talk level: intermediate


Translating stored content in a Ruby project can be a tricky task. How do you read, update and query your translations? Do you need to change your presentation logic to accommodate translations? And in what format will you actually store the translations?

Mobility is a gem I've built to help make working with translations easier. Unlike other translation gems, Mobility is "pluggable", in the sense that it supports many different storage strategies through a common interface. It also supports multiple ORM (ActiveRecord and Sequel currently). This makes it, I believe, the most flexible translation solution for your Ruby project.

I'll explain Mobility and a bit of background about how it internally manages multiple storage backends using some interesting Ruby metaprogramming.

Beyond User Stories Or: How I Learned To Make Developers Love Me, by Francis Wu

User stories are a part of an agile approach to writing software. But how do you go from writing a few sentences to providing detailed instructions for developers? In this talk, I go beyond user stories by detailing how the Acquisio Promote team's GitHub issues are built.

Extracting A Gem From Your Rails App, by Sophie Déziel

Talk level: intermediate


So you've got that big pile of (hopefully) useful code. There are plenty of reasons to extracts some parts to gems, but do you know how to do it? In this talk, I will show you step by step how I extracted a gem from a production application and how I published it.
