Ruby on Rack: The Magic Between Request and Response

Are you ready to embark on an expedition into the core of Ruby web applications? Well, get ready, because it's time to delve into web development with Rack—the powerhouse that fuels popular Ruby web frameworks like Rails and Sinatra. In this captivating talk, we'll plunge deep into the inner workings of Rack, the unsung hero of web development. We'll uncover its secrets, bask in its versatility, and summon the magic of custom Rack middleware—where session management, authentication, and caching reside. For developers at all levels, this talk offers practical insights and fresh perspectives. Equip yourself with the prowess to wield Rack's middleware magic, making your development journey more efficient and enjoyable.

Let's Standardize Rails, Once and For All!

Standard is a linter & formatter ruleset that most Rubyists can get behind. Today, Standard is delivering on its promise: helping teams stay focused on their work instead of arguing over syntax.

Now imagine: a new plugin for Standard called "standard-rails" to encode a reasonable configuration for rubocop-rails. Except this time, what if we skip the years-long process of debating every rule on GitHub and instead hold a community straw poll at RailsConf?

So that's what we're going to do! Join us for a town hall-style event where we'll review what each rubocop-rails rule does, hear its pros and cons, and put it to a vote. Afterward, we'll enshrine our consensus picks in the first public release of standard-rails. By showing up, you'll not only be establishing conventions to promote safe and consistent code, you'll have a hand in sharpening the focus of Rails developers around the world!
