Nick Sutterer

Topic: "Workflows and BPMN with Trailblazer 2.1

Nick Sutterer
Nick Sutterer

For a long time in the Ruby community, complex workflows have caused confusion, and we limited ourselves to half-baked state machines on database models. With Trailblazer 2.1, workflows become the central element of designing and implementing software. Trailblazer now supports the BPMN standard and takes over the flow control, while your team focuses on implementing what will happen.

Alexey Vasylies

Topic: "Dark Insight: the Basics of Security"

Alexander Obozinskiy
Alexander Obozinskiy

Nowadays, when the hacker industry begins to outperform the classical types of business in terms of profitability, and the damage it does can be catastrophic, the task of providing cybersecurity is set not only to highly specialized professionals, but also for ordinary people. Developers rarely conceive how much damage can be caused even by the slightest breach in their systems, while management does not have sufficient knowledge to assess the potential risks, almost any system can become vulnerable to hackers attacks. Therefore we will talk about what is information and cyber security, about the means of their provision.
In the menu:

  • Informational security basics
  • Cyber security basics
  • Social engineering
  • Protection approaches
  • Some useful software solutions overview

Anna Shcherbinina

Topic: "Docker + GPU. Not about mining."

Anna Shcherbinina
Anna Shcherbinina

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.

Leonid Shevtsov

Topic: "A polyglot's view of Ruby on Rails"

Leonid Shevtsov
Leonid Shevtsov

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"

Oleksii Dashkevych
Oleksii Dashkevych

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.
