Ruby Hack Night at Elmar Reizen

On Tuesday, May 21st we're having our Ruby Hack. Location will be at Elmar Reizen, Herengracht 262 in Amsterdam.

What to do on a Ruby Hack Night?

Work on your own project
You have this project you've been working on, but you could use some fresh insights or help with the nasty regex. Maybe you just want to chat about going with a relational or document-oriented database for your use case. Whatever it is, ask others to team up and collaborate.

Work on open-source
You maintain a gem that is in dire need for some love or you’ve found a bug in a gem you use daily. Go at it solo or in a group, tackle those GitHub issues and create a pull request. Help out the community and be on your way to become a Ruby Hero! If you don't know where to start, ask the more experienced Rubyists to join.

You’re an expert wanting to help others
You know your way around any Ruby code you’re up against, but you don't know what to work on. Chances are someone working on any of the above can need some support. Help them out with your expertise. An important goal of our community is to help other Rubyists, both beginners and experts. Help them get their questions answered.

Let us know what you plan to do!
We're not on a rigid schedule, but we would like to know what you plan to do at the Hack Night (you can use the RSVP form field). You don't have to be too specific; we're just using this to allocate desks and other logistical stuff. It's totally fine to come up with something on the spot too.

There's a maximum to the number of coders. There will be a waiting list, so please change your status to "not going" if you change your mind. It will enable someone else to attend.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Dax, Guillermo, Roy and Sjoerd.

    I will be a half hour late but still planning on coming. I am just starting to get my feet wet in Ruby so really just looking for pointers as to what resources are most helpful and where to get started. Thanks,

    I'd like to work on GitLab, maybe add a services feature like Github has for easy integration with third party tools, otherwise I'd at least like to add a HipChat service to get a message whenever someone pushes to a repo.

    Any project needs a rails/ruby developer for hackish help?

    • Wouter van L.

      Oh yes, hackish help is most definitely welcome! If you're eager, feel free to contact me :)

    I'll be doing some stuff on RubyMotion, so if anyone's interested in joining me to have a look, or to tell me how bad I am at iOS development, be my guest!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
