My company - Souplus.com, offers a location-based social business strategy game. Players will be able to virtually own and trade real world restaurant in this game... think of Monopoly on Google Maps. We plan to turn Austin's restaurant scene into a playground of food-loving gamers.

Hey Austin Ruby gurus! Austin has great Ruby coders and great craft beer. We are looking for any Ruby developer interested in helping us finish our Ruby based site for the craft beer industry called BrewFans.com - if you know of anyone that is interested, we are looking for a technical co-founder. We know all of the Austin breweries very well and free tastings are included! Let us know - shoot me an email if interested - [masked] - cheers! Code on....

Thanks, Brian. The job posting isn't precisely wrong but it'd be better if you posted stuff you could stand behind yourself: if your company is hiring, that's cool. If a buddy you can vouch for is hiring, that's cool. If it's a local company where you would recommend them, that's cool.
But if you got a cold call, I'd say that was a bit too much. Let the headhunter ask to show up at a meeting and buy us pizza, and then he can have 5 min for his spiel.

I couldn't attend the 7/9 meetup due to a spousal request :-).
Wanted to pass along an opportunity if anybody's interested - a recruiter cold-called me to ask for networking help: http://jobvite.com/m?3fzgofwc.
PS - if a job posting is inappropriate for this forum, let me know. (Have to ask.)

Thanks, Carl! General format should be: 1) high-level "here's why Resque could be a useful solution to the following problems" and (2) "here's the simplest useful thing you should use Resque for" and (3) "here's a few interesting but non-obvious points (features or gotchas) about Resque that I wish someone had pointed out to me when I started as it would have saved me lots of time and effort".
thanks again for volunteering :)
