Handling File Uploads for a modern developer

Handling File Uploads for a modern developer

In Ruby we have an abundance of options for handling file attachments. Unfortunately, most file attachment gems fall short when it comes to tailoring the attachment flow to your needs and preferences, often leaving your app with suboptimal user experience.

This talk will introduce the Shrine gem and go over some of the modern best practices for handling file attachments. We will cover topics such as image processing (“Is ImageMagick always the best option?”), asynchronous file uploads (“Which JavaScript solution should I choose?”), and handling large uploads (“How do I help users that have a flaky internet connection?”).
