BigRubyConf Follow up

by Tanner Burson in

BigRubyConf was a great opportunity to meet and talk with some really great developers. The slides for my talk on high-scale job processing are available online via speakerdeck.

Outside of talking about job processing, there were some great conversations going on. One topic that came up over and over was being effective as a distributed team. Nearly every company at the conference had some sort of distributed team. With our engineering offices in Atlanta, Boston, and San Francisco, this is a common topic of conversation in Tapjoy engineering. It was really enlightening to hear how similar the tools and techniques we've evolved over the last couple of years are to other successful distributed teams.

I look forward to applying a lot of the things I learned over the next few months, and hope to be a part of BigRubyConf 2015 as well.
