Sandi Metz has thirty years of experience working on projects that survived to grow and change; her book “Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby” is an outgrowth of this experience. Dealing with long lived applications has left her deeply biased towards practical solutions that produce working software that is easy to change. She believes in simple code and straightforward explanations.

Sandi worked for many years at Duke University and now independently consults and teaches. She lives in Durham, North Carolina, where her daily bicycle commute now consists of a loop that starts and ends at her house.

Our code is full of hidden assumptions, things that seem like nothing, secrets that we did not name and thus cannot see.
These secrets represent missing concepts and this talk shows you how to expose these concepts with code that is easy to understand, change and extend.
Being explicit about ideas will make your code simpler, your apps clearer and your life better. Even very small ideas matter. Everything, even nothing, is something.

One of the greatest themes the Ruby community has embraced is testing. Countless words have been written, and tools coded, to make it as easy and painless as possible to write almost any kind of test imaginable. And yet despite all of the time we spend writing tests, we still end up with bugs in production, and we still curse our test suites for being too large, too slow, or too complicated.

In this talk I will not provide you with a single source of truth about how to test your application. What I will provide is a better understanding of how to get the most mileage out of your test suite. Using examples from my own experience of testing Rails, plain old Ruby, JavaScript, and even Objective-C and Java, we will explore the pros and cons of unit testing versus integrated or system testing, what makes a test valuable, and what it means to really have good test coverage.

Payoff has a crazy goal; we want to solve America’s credit card debt problem. After a risky 8-week Ruby rewrite of our 500k line C# personal finance website, we decided that wasn’t audacious enough. So we set out to become a financial institution in order to help folks get out of credit card debt. In the past 16-months, we taught the rest of the engineers Ruby, figured out how to lend money, wrote all the systems and automation needed for a small bank, and hired 70 more super nice people to make it real. If you have a crazy goal to change the world, come listen to our story.
