Beginner Talks

For June we will go back to basics and do some presentations that will appeal to people who don't have much Ruby experience but are curious to learn more. Experienced Rubyists are encouraged to attend to contribute to the discussion and help answer questions.

Speakers include:

• Javan Makhmali- Intro to Ruby

• Tom Smyth - Working with Blocks in Ruby
