Co-Host of The Ruby on Rails Podcast
As a long time listener of the podcast, I came on as a rotating co-host in 2018. Eventually, I took over as a solo host, using the platform to speak to my heroes in the Ruby, Rails, open source and technology space. In 2021, I took the podcast independent and brought on 3 co-hosts: Brian, Jemma and Nick. A personal goal of ours is to elevate voices that have not been heard in our community yet.
Code and the Coding Coders who Code it
Brittany interviews Drew Bragg, the Staff Engineer at Within3 and the host of the new Code and the Coding Coders who Code it podcast about his origin, his love of the Ruby community and their experience at Sin City Ruby. The pair then switch host seats and Drew interviews Brittany about her love of burpees, what she is working on, her blockers and what she currently finds interesting.
Robby speaks with Brittany Martin, Engineering Lead at TextUs. They discuss the mistakes that developers make when discussing technical debt with stakeholders and why it is important to write automated tests against a live/production API. Brittany also shares how she became the host of the 5by5 Ruby on Rails podcast, along with her recent journey of changing jobs and passing technical knowledge over to peers and a future replacement.
Code with Jason
n this episode I talk with Brittany Martin, Lead Web Developer at the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and host of the 5x5 Ruby on Rails Podcast. Brittany and I talk about working successfully with poor-quality APIs, whether to extract application code into gems or not, and, of course, roller derby.
Steph is joined by Brittany Martin, an avid Rubyist and the host of the Ruby on Rails Podcast. They discuss Brittany’s passion for roller derby and her upcoming Ruby conference talk: “Hire Me, I’m Excellent at Quitting.” They also discuss using AWS Serverless, troubleshooting Postgress connection errors and working with Google Pay and Apple Wallet to introduce digital tickets.
In this episode, Chris and Jason chat with Brittany Martin. They talk about the Ruby on Rails Podcast (where Brittany is the host), public speaking, AWS certification, and more!
The Ruby Blend
We have a special guest, Brittany Martin, who is Lead Web Developer for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, where she is part of a team that develops the non-profits ticketing and festival web application and is also the host of the Ruby on Rails Podcast on the 5 by 5 Network. Brittany is here to tell us all about what she does, gem wrappers, and she is seeking some counsel from the guys today on various things. We talk about how important Readme’s are, useful tools for documentations, a project from Evil Martians, a gem called Combustion, and RSpec API documentation is discussed. We end with Brittany telling us all about her passion for being in the Roller derby.
Ruby Tapas | Serverless Ruby with AWS Lambda
For some software applications, even a microservice architecture feels too heavyweight. Sometimes all you really need to implement a bit of new functionality is a single function that takes some inputs and produces some outputs. In those cases, wouldn’t it be nice to simply upload the function into the cloud, and let someone else worry about triggering and scaling it? That’s the value proposition of so-called “serverless” computing. In today’s episode, guest chef Brittany Martin is going to show you everything you need to know to get started with serverless architecture in Ruby, using Amazon’s Lambda service.
