Introduction and Discussion about Ruby on Rails, an agile, open source full-stack web application framework for the Ruby programming language.  Why it's so popular?  What are the pros and cons? Who needs Ruby for a development project?  The emergence of the Ruby CMS, including Radiant. What makes Ruby different and other interesting questions? 

 

Do you Know Ruby & Why You Should Wednesday, April 11, 2012 7:00 PM Location: The meetup is tentatively Scheduled at James Mason University in Arlington, VA near the Clarendon Metro Station.  More info on venue to follow soon.

This is a combined meetup with our sister group, Just Dev It (One).  It is being hosted by the organizers of the Arlington Ruby User's Group.  

This is the first in a series of meetups to introduce entrepreneurs, start-ups, developers, investors beginners and others about the world of Ruby on Rails and supporting technologies.  We will also cover the new world of Ruby on Rails based Content Management Systems (CMS).  These new tools are similar to WordPress and other CMS platforms which make leveraging the power of Ruby on Rails easier for people who do not want to code.  Workshops will follow, so that beginner and seasoned developers can get hands on experience with the language, including tips and tricks.  Study groups andhackathons will be planned as well in the future.
