What is your zipcode? (Helps us pick locations for our meetups.)
Would classify yourself as Beginner, Intermediate or Experienced with Ruby on Rails?
I'm a Sonoma county native who has been developing software professionally for over 10 years, and have been using Ruby on Rails full time for just over a year now. I'm a CS graduate from SSU (and SRJC).
San Francisco, Silicon Valley and the East Bay have meetups for Ruby on Rails but until now there has been nothing north of the Golden Gate. Whether you are new to Ruby on Rails or a long-time practitioner, we hope you will find something useful in this group.
We will host events in Marin, Sonoma and Napa counties.
Our plan is to follow the offerings of the Silicon Valley Meetup:
1. Variety of Ruby on Rails classes. These classes will be offered for beginning RoR developers or intermediate/advanced level.
2. Presentations given by guest speakers(RoR developers) from great startups.
3. Networking events to connect with RoR developers to share experiences and information.
4. Helping RoR developers enhance their resumes and find the right RoR job (also salary/bonus negotation tips).
5. Discounts/promotions and contests for upcoming conferences, RoR textbooks..etc.
6. Tips & Tutorials - follow us on twitter: @northbayruby
