In this workshop, Noel Rappin, author of several books on Rails development, will share his Rails coding best practices for managing more complex applications. He'll also walk you through how to add newer abstractions that allow your code to grow without losing the best of Rails.
You’ll learn why it can be effective to move your business logic out of Rails and into plain Ruby objects that interact with Rails — and how to do it. You'll also get a chance to see how logic objects can robustly handle increased complexity and changes in requirements.

Noel Rappin is our principal software engineer — he helps us build products, leads the apprenticeship program and hosts the Tech Done Right podcast. On his own time, he’s the author of multiple books on development best practices, including Rails 5 Test Prescriptions and Take My Money: Accepting Payments on the Web.
Noel also has a Ph.D. in educational technology and user-centered design, and while we tease him about being Dr. Noel, we’re lucky to have his mind on our team — and to be able to share it with others.
