Speaking at RubyConf 2010

A quick bit of self-promotional guff: I’m thrilled to announce I’ll be presenting at RubyConf 2010 in New Orleans this November. I’ll be speaking about the Ruby incarnation of Faye, and more broadly about doing asynchronous programming and testing using Ruby and EventMachine.

I gave a similar talk based on the JavaScript/Node version at the London Ajax User Group a couple months back, if you want a preview.

You can grab a ticket from the conference site, assuming they’ve not sold out by the time you read this. It’s a pretty daunting prospect sharing a bill with Matz and DHH, so fingers-crossed my first proper conference spot goes well.

If you’ve enjoyed this article, you might enjoy my recently published book JavaScript Testing Recipes. It’s full of simple techniques for writing modular, maintainable JavaScript apps in the browser and on the server.
