Julian is a Production Engineer at Shopify working on developer productivity and experience. Working on the Shopify application, one of the larger Ruby apps out there, has provided a good look into performance related topics in the Ruby ecosystem that he is anxious to share.
Scaling Teams using Tests for Productivity and Education
As Ruby organizations scale, more developers join the team. More developers makes it increasingly difficult to enforce code styles, follow best practices, and document mistakes that were made without relying on word of mouth. While we have tools, such as Rubocop, to check some stylistic components, we lack tooling to document issues and best practices. This talk focuses on strategies and solutions, particularly around best practices, that we employ to help educate and accelerate nearly a thousand developers, without getting in their way, by providing them information “just in time”.
