For some time now we carry out Poznan Ruby User Group meetings in a larger group. No one is surprised with an average attendance rate higher than 30 people. We’re managed to become a cool and developing collective. And we’re happy to see how the level of presentations is getting higher! For the very first time we’ve collected so many talks that we’ve been forced to close the line-up! Also, following the suggestion from our fellows from DRUG, we’ve transformed the speeches form - from now on all the questions should be raised straight away during the prez (no more waiting till the end!)
Krzysztof and Grzegorz spoke about what’s new in Ruby 2.0 and Rails 4.0. We spent over an hour and a half discussing the pros and cons, all that hurts and makes our Ruby hearths bleed. A lot of questions has been raised and a lot of comments added.
The next in the row was Paweł who presented us with RealTime (Node.js + Rails) apps, on the basis of developed by himself GeoRun app. He explained the logic behind designing the application’s architecture, connections between the nodes, and finally - why it’s sooo faaast. In the end, the time has come to demonstrate his solution in practice - you can give it a try.
Last but not least was our PRUG rookie - Jacek, who made a lightning talk about AngularJS, nicely enumerating its weaknesses. However, as he pointed out, the solution is still fresh so there is hope that the authors will continue to develop it.
As usual, after the official part, we had plenty of time to discuss this and that over a beer, or two… or seven. But this is a completely different story.
