Load Testing Rails Applications & Rails Conferences

On today’s episode, Jason shares some pretty cool news that happened at Podia with Harry Connick Jr. and load testing, and a cool tool they used called k6. Chris tells a story about an old project he worked on for 901 Tequila, Jason informs us about his “new talk” at Sin City Ruby, and something pretty cool the guys are doing when they’re in Vegas. We also hear about Text Editor, the guys submitting talks for RailsConf 2022, and Andrew fills us in on using lol_dba and Derailed Benchmarks. And you can’t miss the hilarious story Jason shares about the fire alarm going off during his talk at RubyConf 2017.
