Meetup Central

A New Medium, A New Way to Be There
No dedicated site yet. But, watch video on YouTube with enhanced, integrated slides on YouTube? Click to check it out. View large slides and source code, fully legible.
The future of meetups and other events of interest around the Washington DC metro area, on demand and curated. This is it folks, another video - covering a topic of interest.
Episode 2:

John Athayde, one of the authors of "The Rails View: Create a Beautiful and Maintainable User Experience," will be speaking at our 2nd April meetup.

Are your Ruby on Rails views suffering from cluttered code? Have they become a tangled web of HTML, logic, and who-knows-what-else?

We've reached a quite a bit of consensus on what makes clean code in our Ruby projects. However, there's not as much agreement on how to structure your Rails views. Come learn from John's expertise about how to create maintainable views, and how to leverage some tools to make working with them easier.

He'll cover 10 simple rules you can follow immediately to transform the way you write, think, and feel about Rails views.

Speaker Bio:

John Athayde

John is a UI/UX/Design type who comes from an architecture (of the building variety) background. He's been in the Rails community since 2006 and has broad experience in e-commerce and running creative teams. He is currently leading the design and view development on Internal Tools at LivingSocial. Prior to LivingSocial he was the Design guy at InfoEther and ran Hyphenated People, a UI/UX Consultancy with Amy Hoy. He also runs Meticulous, a design and film company, in his free time.

Although the video quality is not all that great yet, the content is. John coversmuch more than just Rails in this presentation.

What is Meetup Central? Not much to tell yet, still in early development. But know this, it will change the way that you attend, learn, network and followup through the life cycle of an event. Imagine eliminating those annoying email messages, being able to discover events by real interest and through, people that you trust, recommendations. Imagine having more choices on how to attend meetups and other events. Imagine full curation plus a few extra bonuses of the event including full contact and post discussions. What if you could interact with the entire content and media from the event in new, different ways that allow you to get more out of it.

It's coming - sooner than you think. Just take a look at some of the beta versions of what's next some being available today.

Want the Slides and Video? Click to check it out. Try selecting a slide or rewind. Keep in mind, this is very beta.
For now, two ways to watch and interact, more to come. It's only going to get better, including discussions, additional resources and activities covering the same topics. It's all about followup after the event and new ways to interact with the content and the people behind it.
Sight before Site?
Where's the site? Want more? Well, it's coming - you are going to love it. Just wanted to give you a little taste of what's next. Imagine something that is on-demand, social, productive and fun - that's Meetup Central.
Add your comments and suggestions on YouTube or 9Slides. Like us if you like where this is going. Much, much more to come.
