About speaker

Nathan Walls
Sr. Software Engineer at VitalSource Technologies

My development career has been focused on building Web sites and Web-basedapplications for a variety of companies. I enjoy working on Ruby and Rails-basedapplications.My drive is in making the lives of my peers better and more consistent. I wantto work with teams that do that by building applications and tools that automatedeployments, environment provisioning and communication. For my customers andclients, I like building simple, well-designed applications, tailored to aspecific purpose that allow efficient job completion.I value proving software development through concurrent testing using test- andbehavior-driven development). I value automating the development to productionpipeline, from environment set-up to shipping the bits to customers.I help build and ship valuable fault-tolerant and loosely-coupled softwareservices for businesses that embrace agile principles as they iteratively andcontinuously build tailored, pragmatic solutions for their customers. That helpcan come through directly building those services or it can come from providingstable and consistent development and QA tooling to prepare for successfulproduction deployments.

About the talk

RailsConf 2019 - Growing internal tooling from the console up by Nathan L Walls


Your site was built for your external customers first. Data or workflow problems are solved on the Rails console.

But, two years in, your app has grown. Identifying, researching, and fixing those data and workflow problems takes more of your time and attention. It frustrates your business stakeholders, your customers and, of course, you.

This talk will look at a Rails-based web store–including inventory, payment processing, fraud mitigation and customer notifications–and explore how we can build tools into our apps to discover when things go sideways and then help get things back on track.
