Code&Pizza #3 Meetup
Last Thursday at our office in Gliwice we hosted another monthly Code & Pizza Meetup event, which brought together web development specialists from the region eager to learn and network.
Here’s a short summary of the presentations from the meetup
Krzysztof Szromek: Too many cooks spoil the broth
Krzysztof, our CTO presented us a few of his thoughts and lessons learnt about working remotely. It was a good speech which engaged audience.
Mazik was talking about preparing Ruby gems (which in Polish sound as jam… food again). He shared his experiences and ideas on when, how and why developers should build gems.
We appreciated our every guest and we hope, that we’ll see you soon.
No more cron jobs, orchestrate data pipelines with Azure Data Factory
How do you like maintaining lots of bash scripts defined in `crontab`. If you worked in a team responsible for a data flow you know what I mean. If it starts with one script it is OK. But if your crontab grows and grows it is no more fun. Or maybe you are running your BI processes which are doing well in your current warehouse but you encounter problems with the optimization and there are not enough resources to scale your workers up?
Left Join for Advanced Rubyists
Every now and then you will need to keep a track of user activities in the system. This can be approached in several possible ways – one possible solution is to store them as an activity log in the database. This alone can create some challenges and may require you to use less common SQL statements in the Ruby on Rails apps like LEFT JOIN, hence I’ve decided to shed some light on it.
