AWS SDK for Ruby at RailsConf 2018

Alex Wood speaking at RailsConf

Last month, Jingyi and I from the AWS SDK team attended RailsConf in Pittsburgh. We gave two presentations: a session on API design and backwards compatibility, and a lightning talk featuring SDK generation for API Gateway APIs in Ruby. We also enjoyed being able to connect with many of you to talk about how you’re using our Ruby gems for AWS, and to get your feedback.

Session: Broken APIs Break Trust: Tips for Creating and Updating APIs

We had a great time sharing what we’ve learned about API design and backwards compatibility with everyone at the conference, but for those who couldn’t make it live, both the talk video and the slide deck are published and viewable now!

Finding ways to keep innovating while respecting the importance of backwards compatibility in both service and client design is an important part of what we do, and we were super excited to see the level of interest in the topic at the conference.

Keeping the Conversation Going

We always have a great time meeting all of you in person at conferences, and would love to keep hearing from you. Apropos of this, it is worth mentioning that AWS re:Invent registration is open at the time of writing. We hope to see you there!
