I’ve made a huge mistake by not attending @keeprubyweird again…
@olivierlacan @keeprubyweird OMG. I can't look away. I think I have new desktop background
I didn't learn any routines or a new magic show, but I have a few new neat tricks and ideas from @keeprubyweird #hashtag

Elle works as a consultant for Blackmill. Before Blackmill, she was a Development Director in the New York City office of thoughtbot. She believes in writing clean code, driven by automatic tests, with agile practices, an even work/life balance, and a respectful and inclusive team culture. She constantly works to improve her understanding of technologies, techniques, anti-patterns, and what is considered best practice. Her aim is to deliver clean, functional and user–friendly websites in an appropriate timeframe without wasting money or energy. Elle appreciates the value of strong communities. When she is not immersed in the Ruby community, she is probably immersed in water, or lately, in bread flour.

The hardest part of learning to draw is figuring out that you have to draw what you actually see, not what you think you see. Draw a "face" and you end up with an emoji; draw shadows and shapes instead and you end up with a portrait. This talk takes that lesson and applies it to... well, everything.
Fake news is not a tech problem, it's a human problem. To build the tools necessary to combat fake news, technologists must think differently. We must understand the psychology behind fake news to arrive at a solution that is human-centric and attainable.
So there's this game, Kerbal Space Program. You basically create your own space program from scratch. Well, you can control it via TCP, and—using Ruby—we're gonna launch, orbit, and crash our brave Kerbins. You might even learn a thing or two about orbital mechanics and control theory along the way.
A mixture of a talk on programming and a live classical music recital. Listen to a former-orchestral-clarinetist-turned-developer talk about parallelisms between music performance and programming - such as complexity, imposter syndrome, and true concentration - with live performances throughout!

The Conference venue is the historically weird Alamo Ritz Drafthouse, located in the heart of downtown. Each theater seat has its own table. During the conference you'll enjoy some weird talks as you're served gourmet food from the comfort of your oversized seat. All in front of one of the largest screens we've ever seen.
We love spreading the love. That’s why we record and publish all the amazing talks that have been given at KRW. Dive into our libary of 25 videos.
If you are at @keeprubyweird smell your name tag.
Any #keeprubyweird people still in town want to meet for dinner tonight? 🍽
