Presentation: "Introduction: Programming Tools"

Time: Wednesday 10:30 - 10:45

Location: Lokale 2A12, 2. floor

Abstract: Whichever language you prefer, having proper tools support is important for your productivity. Statically typed languages like Java or C# enjoy IDEs with lots of advanced features for helping the programmer type in the code. In a dynamically typed language like Ruby, creating such IDE features is a lot harder. However, advanced Ruby IDEs are finally becoming mainstream. We will have a look some of the most popular IDEs. When you cannot get your IDE to automatically create working code for you, test-driven development becomes a more natural choice for the development process. Thus, the Ruby world has been very keen on test-driven development, and the dynamic nature of Ruby allows for some interesting approaches to testing. We will be guided through a couple of frameworks that ease the testing process.

Presentation: "Versioning your data model"

Time: Wednesday 11:00 - 12:00

Location: Auditorium 1, 1. floor


Often, you need to version all or parts of your data model. Think Wiki pages, in which you need to be able to go back and see who made which changes to the pages.

This presentation will walk you through some very useful Rails plugins that enable you to do that, and a lot more. We will also have a look at what to version and what not to version.
