Remote Pair Programming with Ruby and the Twitter streaming API

The GIST Lab
7pm to 9pm

Quentin Wright will be giving a talk on remote pair programming using screen and Skype. The talk will explain how to remote-pair effectively when it comes to coding and testing and describe some of the problems encountered as well as the benefits. It will also cover some of the particularly interesting parts of the app and the technologies we’ve used.

“For the app we use the Twitter streaming API and EventMachine with RSpec for unit and integration testing. Along the way we’ve flirted with Capybara, Heroku, Resque, Redis, SCSS as well as various Twitter gems. We’re currently using a Ubuntu linux server with a PostgreSQL database.”
