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

  • April 19 · 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!

    Do we need to print out the ticket?

      Chris, What ticket? I asked Marty if I could present something. I'm assuming I'll be able to borrow someone else's laptop.

      Hey Chris: No ticket needed. The Elmhurst meeting is productive, but informal. And yes, laptops are welcome and encouraged!

    The best tool to start the project its a whiteboard and markers. But if there is a need to represent something I use gliffy.

    I'm a newbie - so, a question: Do those of you that are developers start a project by flow charting it or do you just jump in with a general idea and start coding. And, if you do flowchart, whose software do you use? Visio?, Flying Logic (one I like)? Another? Thanks in advance, Doug
