"How I Learned to Love Testing" presentation

Posted in Conferences, Development, Project Management, Testing

A few months ago I really hated the idea of testing my code, I just didn't do it. Now I couldn't think of writing a line of code without the proper tests in place. If you fall into either of these boats you may want to watch this presentation I put together for the Orlando Ruby Users Group. Feedback and comments are always welcome.

David Heinemeier Hansson Keynote at RailsConf 2007

Posted in Web Technologies, Conferences, Development, Frameworks, Databases

This year, DHH noted that he up until now had started all his previous keynotes about Rails celebrating how “freakin’ fantastic we are”. For this keynote, he thought - with Rails being well within in its third year in existence - that it was time to perhaps be happy with what we have. He explained that new things tend to go through certain phases: First they ignore you, then t...

MWRC: Carl Youngblood - Simple Bayesian Networks with Ruby

Posted in Conferences, Development, Science

Bayesian networks are excellent tools for modeling knowledge, especially in realistic situations where there is incomplete domain awareness. Given reasonably accurate causal relationships between variables, a Bayesian network can determine the most likely state of unobserved variables in a system. Bayesian networks are used in a wide variety of applications, including textual analysis, image pr...

MWRC: Michael Hewner - Ruby USB

MWRC: Michael Hewner - Ruby USB

Posted in Conferences, Development

One of the really neat things about USB devices is that they are almost entirely self-describing, which makes it easy to let Ruby just "do the right thing" when communicating with them. This presentation will give a brief introduction to the USB spec and then a discussion of the difficulties of integrating Ruby with this spec (and the libUsb library that wrapped it). Then there will b...
