I'd like to share my experiences presenting outside the security industry at developer conferences like Djangocon, JSConf (trackb), and RealtimeConf what it's like to be the lone security professional in a sea of builders, what it feels like, what they say, what they really care about, how not to speak to them, how to completely disrespect them, and how to fail miserably.
Extending your Rails app with some Go, Scala, Elixir or node.js sound interesting to you? The first challenge to get there is to safely share the session between your apps.

Performance is one of the most important features of any application. Research has shown that every 100 milliseconds decrease in speed can reduce sales by 1 percent. Ruby is not known as a fast language but there are things we can do to optimize the performance of our Ruby code. This talk will show how to properly benchmark your Ruby code and discuss various techniques for making code faster and more memory efficient.
