Ruby::AZ - Feb. 18th

Posted by sshea in Events, Ruby::AZ | no comments

Introduction to Nitrous.io

Garth Gaughan will introduce the group to Nitrous.io which allows for browser based development in many languages including ruby. The idea of simply developing from a browser anywhere in the world from any computer with a good internet connection is music to my ears. The Nitrous.io team has built in many features that make everything from creating to deployment easy. He will talk about the features and pitfalls that he has found and run into, including a short demo.

Postgres from a DBS's perspective

Steve Crandell, Postgres DBA here in Phoenix, will be giving an overview of Postgres.

About The Presenters:

Garth Gaughan

I am an aspiring software developer currently studying ruby. I spend most of my time solving problems or finding problems to solve. Some are of the coding variety, some are of the life variety. Favorite foods: Indian, and Nutella (not together.) I rarely scream but when I do the buckeyes have just scored a touchdown.

Steve Crandell

Steve has been doing a mix of systems and database related projects since 1999 and working with postgres since 2006. He has built a startup on postgres, converted large portions of existing companies over to postgres, played games inside postgres and loved every minute of it. Steve is member of the phoenix postgresql users group and an overall proponent of open (but still friendly) technologies, especially when it comes to relational and non-relational data stores.
