Using Multiple Databases with Active Record

As your application grows in usage, there are different things you might need to consider when scaling your database. In this talk, we will briefly introduce some of the reasons why having multiple databases makes sense and how Rails is helping us set our applications so they can read from those. In order to demonstrate that, we’ll show how we are using and extending the support for multiple databases provided by Rails.

Julia López

Senior Software Engineer, Harvest

I am Julia López from Barcelona! I’ve been a Rails developer since 2011 and I love it. I am currently working as a Senior Software Engineer at Harvest where I had the chance to participate in many Rails upgrades – I am obsessed with upgrading things so I never miss those opportunities – After the conference talks, you can find me at the Karaoke events!
