Ruby Intrigue

Presented by Adam Bair, Brendan Lim, Pradeep Elankumaran

Sick of writing web applications with Ruby? Curious about the possibilities? Yeah, we thought so. There's more to life than whipping up RESTful CRUD applications in Rails. Together we'll expand our Ruby horizons while writing a web crawler, a game, and an SMS server. We'll also discuss coding practices and methodologies along the way.

Crawler

  • Nokogiri

  • single/multi-threaded

  • event machine

  • smacksale.com

Asteroids

  • Gosu framework

  • window configuration

  • interaction with a player

  • player interaction with objects

SMS

  • sms_fu

  • delivering SMS

  • dealing with carriers

  • consuming SMS via email

Ruby Intrigue is highly interactive and works best with lively participation and questions. Due to the lab intensive nature of this tutorial students should come equipped with a laptop (or semi-portable computer) configured with a suitable development environment.

At the end of the day you'll walk away with multiple working applications and an enhanced awareness of the possibilities that lie beyond the domain of web frameworks.
