Great to see everyone yesterday.
If you're interested in the code that I demonstrated for accessing the JRuby AST from Clojure it's at http://github.com/jsl/jruby-ast-clj. The slides are available at http://github.com/jsl/jruby-ast-clj/blob/master/doc/RubyAstClojure.ppt.
Looking forward to next time!

Yesterday when asked about Typhoeus I brought up that the author has stated he would likely take a different approach:
So just to cite my sources, and to facilitate further discussion I dug up the quote+source.
...."Thank you. Actually it’s funny because if I have the chance to do that now, [laughs] I would make it very different… Yeah. I wouldn’t use a native library at all. I would just use threads and the connection pool, stuff like that." - Paul (http://rubyrogues.com/076-rr-service-oriented-design-with-paul-dix/)....
Just to be clear, I am not saying my little gist is this new implementation or a replacement for Typhoeus. It was simply grown out of a specific use-case.
I especially appreciated the talks on ruby security and thread programming :) I don't ex[ect to be doing thread programming but I definitely want to know what I have to do if I had to implement thread programming :)
Fun evening, great talks and discussion! Anyways, as requested, the gist referred to my talk -> http://git.io/6n-obQ
Fun set of talks, nice people, good time.

Help support your Meetup
Founded in 2004, NYC.rb is the place for experienced Ruby and Rails programmers in New York City.
We meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. Second Tuesdays are for one or more talks, and fourth Tuesdays are just hackfests, where people bring their laptops and hang out.
Job postings are allowed on the mailing list if they meet the following requirements:
* You must identify the company by name. * You must put [JOB] in the subject to help others filter out these messages. * The job must be Ruby-related, and in the NYC metro area.
You cannot directly contact other list members about jobs unless they've contacted you first--violators of this rule may be banned and/or publicly shamed.
If you have any questions or concerns about these rules, please feel free to contact the Meetup organizers.
Chat with us at nyc.rb on irc.freenode.net.
3,972 Designers + Geeks
4,225 Ruby developers
1,370 Rails Engineers
5,355 Java enthusiasts
We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
