Don't @ me! Instance Variable Performance in Ruby
How do instance variables work? We've all used instance variables in our programs, but how do they actually work? In this presentation we'll look at how instance variables are implemented in Ruby. We'll start with a very strange benchmark, then dive in to Ruby internals to understand why the code behaves the way it does. Once we've figured out this strange behavior, we'll follow up with a patch to increase instance variable performance. Be prepared for a deep dive in to a weird area of Ruby, and remember: don't @ me!

Running Rack and Rails Faster with TruffleRuby
Optimizing Rack and Rails applications with a just-in-time (JIT) compiler is a challenge. For example, MJIT does not speed up Rails currently. TruffleRuby tackles this challenge. We have been running the Rails Simpler Benchmarks with TruffleRuby and now achieve higher performance than any other Ruby implementation.
In this talk we’ll show how we got there and what TruffleRuby optimizations are useful for Rack and Rails applications. TruffleRuby is getting ready to speed up your applications, will you try it?

RubyMem: The Leaky Gems Database for Bundler
Out of memory errors are quite tricky. Our first reaction is always the same: "It can't be my code, it must be one of my dependencies!" What if you could quickly check that with bundler?
In this talk you will learn about memory leaks, out of memory errors, and leaky dependencies. You will learn how to use
bundler-leak, a community-driven, open source tool that will make your life easier when debugging memory leaks.

Dependency Resolution with Standard Libraries
I maintain the RubyGems, Bundler and the standard libraries of the Ruby language. So, I have a plan to make all of the standard libraries to default gems at Ruby 3. In the past, I described the detail of default gems and bundled gems at RubyKaigi and the Ruby conferences in the world. But the users still confused the differences standard libraries and default/bundled gems.
After releasing Ruby 3, We need to learn about the dependency is not only "Versioning" with default gems. It caused by the between library and library over the versioning. For that reason, I need to describe the motivation of "Promoting/Demoting the Default Gems or Bundle Gems" continuously. You will learn the resolution mechanism on RubyGems/Bundler and the standard libraries of the Ruby language with my talk.

Keyword Arguments: Past, Present, and Future
Ruby 3 will separate keyword arguments from positional arguments, which causes the biggest backwards compatibility issues in Ruby since Ruby 1.9. This presentation will discuss the history of keyword arguments, how keyword arguments are handled internally, how keyword arguments were separated from positional arguments internally, and possible future improvements in the handling of keyword arguments.
My work is onboard people in a large Ruby codebase, and most of the time, I'm showing code or hunting for some code examples.
While developing some educational RuboCop cops, I found the RuboCop node pattern very useful to target code offenses. Then, I developed a similar tool to search and allow refactoring code based on node pattern concept.
Live coding: Grepping Ruby code like a boss
Our favorite language allows us to implement the same code in a few different ways. Because of that, it becomes tough to search and find the target code only with regular expressions.
I'd like to present fast, a searching DSL that can help you build complex searches directly in the AST nodes as regexes does for plain strings.
The presentation will be a live coding tour of how to use the tool and create your searching patterns.
I'll also show how to manipulate the code in the target AST nodes, allowing us to refactor the source code in an automated way. I'll share a few funny stories about how I refactored thousands of files in a week.

mruby-rr: Time Traveling Debugger For mruby Using rr
Debugging bugs that don't happen every time is painful. It needs both technique and luck.
When dealing with these, a mistyped
continue command is irreversible and will take us a whole afternoon just to reproduce the issue again.
mruby-rr comes to rescue! It's a Time Traveling Debugger for mruby that based on Mozilla's rr.
mruby-rr supports record and replay of mruby program execution. We can record the tough bug using mruby-rr for just once. Afterwards we can playback the execution as many times as we want.
mruby-rr can also do time traveling operations like
reverse-next and evaluating expressions.

Don't Wait For Me! Scalable Concurrency for Ruby 3!
We have proven that fibers are useful for building scalable systems. In order to develop this further, we need to add hooks into the various Ruby VMs so that we can improve the concurrency of existing code without changes. There is an outstanding PR for this work, but additional effort is required to bring this to completion and show its effectiveness in real world situations. We will discuss the implementation of this PR, the implementation of the corresponding Async Scheduler, and how they work together to improve the scalability of Ruby applications.

We will be programmers that code clear code as our company name suggests. He is a maintainer of rake-compiler gem that helps fat gem developers. He was maintain Ruby-GNOME that had many fat gems.
Goodbye fat gem
Fat gem mechanism is useful to install extension library without any compiler. Fat gem mechanism is especially helpful for Windows rubyists because Windows rubyists don't have compiler. But there are some downsides. For example, fat gem users can't use Ruby 2.7 (the latest Ruby) until fat gem developers release a new gem for Ruby 2.7. As of 2020, pros of fat gem mechanism is decreasing and cons of it is increasing. This talk describes the details of pros and cons of it then says thanks and goodbye to fat gem.

Reflecting on Ruby Reflection for Rendering RBIs
As part of our adoption process of Sorbet at Shopify, we needed an automated way to teach Sorbet about our ~400 gem dependencies. We decided to tackle this problem by generating interface files (RBI) for each gem via runtime reflection.
However, this turns out to not be as simple as it sounds; the flexible nature of Ruby allows gem authors to do many wild things that make this Hard. Come and hear about all the lessons that we learnt about runtime reflection in Ruby while building
Money Forward, Inc. hire Shyouhei, a long-time ruby-core committer, to contribute to the whole ruby ecosystem. Being a full-time ruby-core developer, his current interest is to speed up ruby execution by modifying its internals. Doing so is not straight-forward because of ruby's highly dynamic nature. To tackle this problem he is implementing a variety of optimisation techniques that are yet to be applied to it.
On sending methods
As you have noticed 2.7 is faster than older ruby versions. One of the main reason for this is my optimisation around method invocations. Let me share what was suboptimal, and how was that fixed.

The whys and hows of transpiling Ruby
Transpiling is a source-to-source compiling. Why might we need it in Ruby? Compatibility and experiments.
Ruby is evolving fast nowadays. The latest MRI release introduced, for example, the pattern matching syntax. Unfortunately, not everyone is ready to use it yet: gems authors have to support older versions, Ruby implementations are lagging. And it's still experimental, which raises the question: how to evaluate proposals? By backporting them to older Rubies!
I want to discuss these problems and share the story of the Ruby transpiler — Ruby Next. A decent amount of Ruby hackery is guaranteed.

Type Profiler: a Progress Report of a Ruby 3 Type Analyzer
Type Profiler is a type inference tool for plain Ruby code. It analyzes Ruby code that has no type information and guesses a type of the modules and methods in the code. The output will serve as a signature for external type checkers like Sorbet and Steep. Since 2019, we have been developing the tool as one of the key features for Ruby 3 static analysis, and now it works with some practical applications. In this talk, we briefly explain what and how Type Profiler works, present a roadmap and progress of the development, and discuss how useful it is for practical applications with some demos.
