Eastside/Westside Monthly Bash -June



Monthly Bash - Ruby Style

Thursday, June 20th 6:30 - 10pm

Pivotal Labs
631 Wilshire Bl Suite 2c Santa Monica, CA 90401

The Eastside and Westside Ruby Study Groups meet-up again, this time at Pivotal Labs in Santa Monica. The fabulous people of Pivotal Labshave graciously lent us their space and time and will host the event.

Schedule of Events:

6:30-7:30   Networking & Announcements

7:30- 9:30  Anna Mendoza will guide you through a Serve Project, presenting the basics of working with the Serve Gem, Front-end Development, Javascript and CSS, then Ira Herman will help you deploy the application to Heroku!

9:30 - 10    Ruby Quiz & Networking

10:00   After Party - Location TBD

We will have food, fun & you'll learn something new.

Bring your computer, business cards and your smile.

All are welcome!


Serve Gem: Build fantastic websites with your favorite template languages. Serve provides the equivalent of the Views part of the Rails MVC.WIth Sass & Compass built in!  Perfect for mockups and front-end development.

Heroku: Instantly deploy with git. Focus on the code and forget about servers. A favorite for Ruby Developers, deploy all your apps in the cloud.

Hosted by Anna Mendoza, Jen Diamond, Pivotal Labs.

Presentations by Anna Mendoza and Ira Herman.

This is a Meetup Group based on the weekly Ruby Study Group that takes place every Thursday on the East & West sides of Los Angeles. Once a month we all meet in one location to learn, catch up with each other and meet new people.

    Nice to see everyone. As promised I've uploaded the project we were working on yesterday as a COMPASS project:

    The original project we cloned last night is available here:

    And the Tutorial to observe is ready to view here:

    If there's anybody interested in a day-long workshop where
    we build out a Serve project, please let me or Jen know and
    we'd be happy to make it happen!

    All feedback is very welcome. ;0)
