Access denied: the missing guide to authorization in Rails

At RailsConf, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States

This talk discusses common patterns in designing access systems and demonstrates useful code techniques.

Ruby on Rails brings us a lot of useful tools out-of-the-box, but there are missing parts too. For example, for such an essential task as authorization, we are on our own. Even if we choose a trending OSS solution, we still have to care about the way to keep our code maintainable, efficient, and, of course, bug-less.

Working on Rails projects, I’ve noticed some common patterns in designing access systems, as well as useful code techniques I’d like to share with you in this talk.
