Could you introduce yourself in a few lines?
Salut ! I'm Emily and I work on the Ruby driver to MongoDB. I also teach Rails at Columbia University as an adjunct faculty. You can otherwise find me running, going to concerts, or on a plane to a place I've never been before.
You're giving a talk at Rulu this year. What will you talk about?
That wrap music: writing a Ruby API to wrap another API.
- You code with: Sublime
- You test with: RSpec, TestUnit
- If Ruby was forbidden, you would code in: C
What Lyonnaise specialty will you give a try this year?
What are you working on these days?
I'm splitting my time between maintaining the current Ruby driver (1.x) and working with my team to write a new one (2.0)
What are the talks, books, libraries or commands you think more people should be aware of - because, well, they make your life so much better!
- poodr, of course.
- Domain Driven Design
- Programming Pearls (always relevant despite the publication date!)
Anything to add before we wrap this up?
I look forward to catching up with some rubyists I had the pleasure of meeting at dotrb last year and to meeting some new rubyists. In particular, if you're a mongo ruby driver user, let me know, I'd love to chat!
