Presenting at RailsConf 2017

October 28, 2017

One of the benefits of working at ActBlue is that you have the opportunity to play with lots of traffic.

In August of last year, I gave a talk at Boston Ruby Group sharing our experience building a high performance web application. The feedback I received from that audience and from colleagues allowed me to improve it and submit a proposal to RailsConf 2017.

My application was accepted in the High Volume track. I gave my talk last April, and although I was pretty nervous, I’m happy with the result. After 6 months, the talk is ranked #26 of 86 with 500 views in Confreaks. I recommend you to watch it.
