I am a full stack developer of the modern web. I express my apps business values in RSpec, capture it's behaviour in Ruby on Rails models and help Humans to interact with it's data through mobile first, responsive and progressive enhanced HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript driven user interfaces. For more than a decade I am a rigorous practitioner of Free Software development. I love the raw power of communities collaborating and I believe that everyone should be able to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software that is running the world. My day job at SUSE.com is hacking the Linux distribution development platform Open Build Service. In my free time I practice my skills by developing an event organization app, the Open Source Event Manager, by operating the server infrastructure of the openSUSE project and by teaching free software development with programs such as Google Summer of Code.

You have visited the Basic Rails for Geekos workshop at oSC15, concluded an online workshop like Rails for Zombies or, eureka, have actually read a book like Agile Web Development with Rails? You have a basic idea about models (no not Cara Delevingne), views (no not the one out of your window) and controllers (no not your PS4 pad)? Now let's see if you can apply this knowledge to some real world Ruby on Rails application! In this workshop we are going to fix at least one bug, refactor at least one method and implement at least one feature together. All you need to bring with you is a laptop with openSUSE 13.2, basic understanding of Ruby on Rails, github (https://help.github.com/) and some curiosity. You will take away advanced Ruby on Rails knowledge and a huge list of ideas how to deepen that!
