Hack & Chat

Come join NYC Ruby Women for an evening of hacking and chatting on June 12, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.)


Our schedule:

- 6:30–7 p.m.: Meet, greet & settle in

- 7 p.m.: Practice your talk, show off your project

Several members have been working on some terrific projects and are preparing tech talks for upcoming presentations and conferences. Now's your time to practice and get feedback from supportive, encouraging and knowledge-diverse Ruby Women.

If you've got something you'd like to teach, explain or explore, post your ideas to the Google Group, email Chrys, or just show up with your code or deck and we'll make sure you get time to talk.


- 1 hour of open coding

Bring your project in progress or a new project idea and we’ll hack!


About NYC Ruby Women:

We know how hard it is to get started and get better in a new programming language. We also know it's fun to find like-minded people to solve problems with.

Our goal is to give women and those who self-identify as women a safe and welcoming environment to share ideas, improve coding and speaking skills, and make new friends.

We welcome women Rubyists of all experience levels. If this sounds like something for you, come join us!

To provide a comfortable environment for our members, we expressly forbid recruiters.

    ....there's already a bloodbath in my apartment over that Ruby catnip toy. I love it so much, I'm tempted to take it away from them so they don't tear it up!!

      Ha! Perfect! It was a gift from Pete Brown (@beerlington), one of the Burlington Ruby Conference organizers, because they are super adorable like that.

    I wasn't up for hacking, but chatting was good, seeing old friends was good, and I enjoyed the Rachel presentation. That would work well in front of a couple hundred people.

    I'm very new to this world because I'm a musician. Could you tell me what Ruby is?

  • Irene

    Hi. I don't know about Ruby or programming but would like to get into it. Will this meeting be appropriate for beginners?

    Is anyone scheduled to speak? I am giving my Ruby Nation talk that Friday in DC and would love last minute feedback if anyone is willing to listen to me for 30 mins. :-)
