My workshops are small, intimate intensives intended to give you a solid base of skill in performance measurement (benchmarking, profiling) and for us to work together on problems specific to the applications you work on day-to-day. Class sizes are deliberately kept small (20 or less) so I can have plenty of interaction with every student. A one-day event, from 9am-5pm.
You will learn:
How to find out exactly what parts of your application are slow
What performance problems in Rails applications are hard to fix and which are easy
Why premature optimization isn't just bad, it's a waste of time
How to build a performance culture in your organization
How Ruby's memory management works and what problems it can cause
Workshop will be held at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis (the RailsConf conference hotel) from 9am-5pm the day after Railsconf ends. This event is not affiliated in any way with Railsconf or Ruby Central.
