  2. @kentaro Software engineer to build technical basis Rubyist / Perl

    Monger Kentaro Kuribayashi paperboy&co. Hi, I’m Kentaro Kuribayashi, working for paperboy, Japan. I’m a software engineer to build our company-wide technical basis.
  3. http://twitter.com/kentaro http://github.com/kentaro Twitter GitHub I’m on Twitter and GitHub.

  4. Our company, paperboy, is known for a PaaS-like service, Sqale.

    Sqale supports rack apps. Please check it out if you get interested.
  5. Rails 4 is coming! So, Rails 4 is coming...

  6. (soon) Soon. Nobody knows precisely when it is, though ;)

  7. http://blog.wyeworks.com/2012/11/13/rails-4-compilation-links/ This mindmap shows us newly introduced topics in Rails

    4. As you can see, Rails 4 doesn’t introduce so much big changes, but too many newly introduced and removed/deprecated features.
  8. Check them out in advance Check them out in advance

    to get accustomed to the new Rails. You’ll eventually do with upgrading your existing apps to Rails 4.
  9. Edge Guides http://edgeguides.rubyonrails.org/ Edge API Reference http://edgeapi.rubyonrails.org/ Rails4 Release Notes

    http://edgeguides.rubyonrails.org/4_0_release_notes.html Rails 4 compilation links http://blog.wyeworks.com/2012/11/13/rails-4-compilation-links/ There already have been some documents from which we can get the changes.
  10. As you may know, now you can keep up with

    the Edge Rails with iPhone or Kindle, every time, everywhere!
  11. Triglav http://github.com/kentaro/triglav By the way, I’ve been working on development

    of a tool, named Triglav, these months. It’s kind of a server management tool.
  12. Still at alpha stage It looks like that. Just so

    common web application, though. Triglav has minimalistic features providing API set to retrieve hosts information. It copes with users’ complicated demands with loose-coupled architecture. Of course, it’s written in the Edge Rails.
  13. Rails 4 Chat http://github.com/kentaro/rails4-chat And I hacked up chat example

    using some new features in Rails 4.
  14. ActionController::Live, one of the killer features of Rails 4, is

    suitable for Server-Sent Events. I combined it with the new Queue API and Redis. In that way, we can easily create such a realtime application using Rails. It’s very exciting!
  15. Living on the Edge Living on the Edge Rails is

    harder than you might imagine ;) You’ll often get stuck into various problems around Rails eco-system.
  16. When I started developing Triglav, there were many bugs around

    sprockets. This picture shows my pull request to sass-rails.
  17. I fixed also less-rails along with the new sprockets.

  18. This is to fix turbolinks. It didn’t work with ActionController::Live.

  19. At a certain time, Ruby 2.0.0 broke the backward compatibility

    with Bundler. So, I sent a pull request that made Rails 4 depend on the new Bundler.
  20. The stories above are only applicable to Edge Rails, furthermore

    it is being to the major version up now! CAVEAT The stories above are only applicable to the Edge Rails, furthermore it is being to the major version up now!
  21. Eureka! http://www.flickr.com/photos/waikin/291915457/lightbox/ As a result, I got to know more

    about Rails internal and its eco system. I recommend you should be into it once at least :)
  22. These are highly recommendable books for those who want to

    know more about Rails. (The former book explains the Rails internal) (The latter gives us how to upgrade our existing applications to Rails 4) Both books are must-read.
  23. l found Rails is developed in a very social way.

    I’m convinced that working with the Edge Rails is one of the fastest way to do social coding.
  24. RECAP • Living on the Edge Rails is fun and

    good lesson • Rails 4 is really promising and exciting • Try Rails 4 as soon as possible! Recap.
