Topic: "Docker + GPU. Not about mining."
Just before Christmas we launched a new body-measurement feature for our shapify.me project. A person goes into the 3D booth, gets scanned, and the body-measurements are calculated with the 3D scan data. We couldn't avoid using a GPU with these calculations.
How to install this branch of processing into our elegant scaling pipeline? When you're dealing with 3D scans you should remember two things: it's expensive and time-consuming. By the way, its workload fluctuates throughout the days. The easiest solution for us was to use Docker.
This speech is not about mining, but the most helpful articles for us were ones such as "Building your own mining farm". That's because we use quite a similar infrastructure.
GPU, Docker, scaling. What we achieved, where we failed, and what it became of it in the end is all included in my speech.

Topic: "A polyglot's view of Ruby on Rails"
Nowadays, it's hip to switch from Rails to other languages and frameworks. Leonid, too, has abandoned Rails, played the field a bit, and has come around to occasionally but consistently picking Rails for some projects. What's the modern reason to use Rails? What are the strengths of Ruby and Rails and how to build upon them? When you should really jump to some other platform? Let's answer these questions in a true Ruby meditation.
Topic: "Project development - preparing hell dish together"
The recipe is averaged, because of many variations. We take some Ruby code and add Rails magic, Postgresql on top. Add Docker for viscosity. Then put this on AWS EBS pan and start frying. It's all roasted until burning deadlines and generously watered with bugs, serves to the customer. They start eating. Eat and whisper: “This is an awesome product!”. At the same time, he forehead is sweating. Kindly offer to fix bugs, but we refuse and put them in JIRA. Do I need to talk about what kind of feedback comes then? Tasks with such recipes, that double estimated.
