Test Double Talks

Daniel Huss, The end of Legacy Code

Ali Ibrahim, Zero downtime Rails upgrades

Tuesday, April 25 at 2:30 PM, 204 BC
No one likes working on Rails upgrades, and who can blame them? They can be thankless, time-consuming, and—worst of all—unpredictable. It’s tempting to say, “Let’s do it later,” but later is usually never.

Justin Searls & Meagan Waller, Let’s Standardize Rails, once and for all!

Tuesday, April 25 at 3:30 PM, 204 HI
Four years ago, Justin Searls arbitrarily configured every RuboCop rule and published it as a gem called “standard.” 135 releases later, feedback from the community has gradually transformed Standard into a linter & formatter ruleset that most Rubyists can get behind.

The time has come to once again configure the unconfigurable by creating a standard-rails based on rubocop-rails. But this time, we’ll skip the years of debating rules on GitHub. Instead, we’re holding a community straw poll at RailsConf!
