ChicagoRuby: Elmhurst - How Do I Build... ?

  • January 18 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The "How Do I Build...?" format is somewhere between a hack night and a presentation.

The key question: "How do I build [X] in Ruby or Rails?" We might talk about the best shopping cart or calendar or whatever for Rails. We might talk about the best way to do database maintenance with Ruby, or the best tools for organizing Ruby or Rails development.

Every ChicagoRuby member is invited to drive. Let the group know what you want to do, what you've tried, and what would be interesting to you. Let's put our heads together and create!

Lunch After the Meeting
After most meetings, we go to lunch at the Elmhurst Restaurant, roughly two blocks NW of the meeting venue. Address: 441 West Lake Street, Elmhurst, IL 60126. Join us!

    Great. After quick introductions, Ray Hightower briefed us on two upcoming coferences. The annual Windy City Rails 2014 event which will be in September and has a new West Loop venue. RailsConf 2014 which is coming up in April, is the nationwide Rails event that is happening in Chicago this year. Submit your speaking proposals for both. Aaron Brady gave a presentation on Garbage collection in Python, along with some discussions on the stack and heap.
    Marty Lavin gave a quick presentation of Scaffolding and how one could put up a working website, including database editing, in about 15 minutes. We then networked and talked for another twenty minutes.

    After that eight of us went to Elmhurst Restaurant for lunch and more computer geek talk.

    Do you guys need a presenter? I have a couple things I could do. They're in Python but they're pretty abstract, plus a couple things that aren't directly Python at all.
