Simon Maynard will talk about debugging in Ruby, as well as the tools that Ruby gives you for error handling and how you can bend them to your will. He’ll also cover how errors will affect your Rack and Rails apps and show you how Rack middleware can help you deal with errors.
Simon Maynard is the CTO of Bugsnag, the leading application error monitoring service for Ruby.
Background on Bugsnag
Bugsnag is a commercial product that allows you to get a real time view of the bugs in your Ruby on Rails application. You can get notifications of your bugs and full bug reports right as the bugs happen. Bugsnag has a number of interesting features including helping you determine which of the bugs have highest priority, easy bug grouping and management, and integration with a number of project management tools such as Jira and others. The basic plan starts at $29.99 so if you have an engineering department and live Ruby code, it is a small price to pay to get access to this powerful tool.
