Keeping Rails on the Tracks 4.42


It's not what you code, it's how you code it. In this talk, I'll take you through real world examples of code drawn from the 40+ production Rails applications we have developed and maintained during the last 12 months and highlight anti patterns and examples of technical code debt in them. You do what you can do to avoid these, making your future lives simpler. Your future you will thank you...

This was an interesting talk, but I think it gave as much bad advice as good. The warnings against using abstraction and meta-programming within your Rails projects were overstated. I can see the point of getting new Rails developers to take it easy, but when your projects grow, these tools are necessary.

Hey there, thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback!

You are right meta programming does have it's place in complex rails apps, and I wasn't trying to make sure no one uses meta programming, I was trying to stress that a lot of the time it is used where it shouldn't be that results in less maintainable code.

If I give this talk again I'll be sure to take your comment into account so that I stress the right points :)
