Presenting at RailsConf 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.
