While Trailblazer offers you abstraction layers for all aspects of Ruby On Rails, it does not
missionize you. Wherever you want, you may fall back to the "Rails Way" with fat models,
monolithic controllers, global helpers, etc. This is not a bad thing, but allows you to
step-wise introduce Trailblazer's encapsulation in your app without having to rewrite it.
is all about structure. It helps re-organize existing code into smaller components where
different concerns are handled in separated classes. Forms go into form objects, views are
object-oriented MVC controllers, the business logic happens in dedicated domain objects backed
by completely decoupled persistence objects
It's about a decade that we use Ruby for the web. Some of the products of these years have tons
of messy code, slow builds and painful upgrades to deal with. If your application uses fat
models AND fat controllers, you've got the point.
Lotus is a minimal, but yet powerful
framework that is focused on good object oriented design, testability and speed. You will learn
about the patterns that it implements to solve these problems and to push Ruby performance to
We need new ideas to evolve as a Community and as individuals. Good news are that
you can apply them on today. Let's talk together!
Call for Papers
There’s a special website, where you can submit
your talk proposals. The way we prepare the agenda is to look at the proposals and see which talks serve
our vision the best. We’re then contacting the speakers directly. This means that the sooner you submit
the proposal, the more chance you have to influence our vision.
The main goal of the conference is very clear. We want to help Ruby professionals become better at
what they do. Wroc_love.rb serves best to people who are already fluent with Ruby. The ideas presented
at our conference are very advanced. They are meant to inspire the way we write code, the way we help
our clients and users. It’s not uncommon for us to present you ideas that come from the Java and .NET
worlds, we believe that their ideas can have a great influence on our community. There are good reasons,
why our conference is called “the best Java conference in the Ruby world”.
Our goal is to ensure a good environment to learn and discuss. We love confronting ideas, even when it’s
uncomfortable to the Ruby status-quo. We love experimenting with new formats of talks and discussions,
like fights, fishbowls and crowd-moderated discussion panels. Everything that can inspire the Ruby
programmers is more than welcome at our conference. Let us know, what you’d be interested in
Inspiration and safety
Conferences are not only about listening. Most of the value comes from talking to each other. Our mission
is to create an inspiring, thoughtful, creative and safe space to everyone involved. The venue is
known to be of good quality - it’s a University of Wroclaw building. It has many ways to ensure safety
of all the people inside like monitoring and special security people.
As part of our goal, we’re
dedicated to react to all situations that we’ll be notified, ideally directly to us.There will be a special
phone number, you can call at any time to let us know about any problem or ask any
Additionally, there will be a special team of student volunteers who will be
visible during the conference (If you want to join the team, please let us know). Student volunteers are
here to help find your way around and resolve any problem. It is needless to say that this conference is
a place for good people, only. Good people respect each other, are nice to each other, smile, and make
everyone (without exceptions) feel comfortable.
Who we are
Wroc_love.rb started as an activity of the DRUG (Wroclaw User Group) organization. However, over time,
people loved it so much that the organization team grew to much more than that. Wroc_love.rb is now
organized by Rubyists from many different Polish regions.
If you like our mission, then you can help us by buying a special supporter ticket. It’s 600 EUR. This
ticket guarantees your logo on the website and on the videos. Your company would join other already
