    Grzegorz: Is Ruby on Rails too slow for popular application? Is it impossible to use threads in MRI? Is Ruby good for just the early days of the project?

    Grzegorz: The audience will hear some ideas, but also some tips and advices about how to work on the performance of application to keep it usable for the users when it gets popular.

  • What do you presently work at?
