Language Agnostic Open Programming Session

It's been decided, based on the poll conducted last week, that the best bet to encourage as many people down to the August NRUG as possible, is for us to hold an open programming session, with no constraints on language or technology.

 

This will be an opportunity for you to bring along your preferred programming device to PANDR's studio space in order to work on any side project or task/challenge of your choosing. The idea being there will be a group of other like minded programmers to work alongside, troubleshoot with and bounce ideas off of.

 

I (Pete), personally will probably be working on Rakkit.com but you may like to bring along a Java/ASP/PHP project you're into at the moment, if not something in Ruby! Alternatively if you've recently acquired a Raspberry Pi then this might be a good opportunity to come and share your plans for the device and to begin work on it.

 

PANDR will sponsor the event with Pizza and Beers to ensure everyone is fed and watered on the night, so leave your preferred pizza flavours in the comments and we'll start compiling and order.

    Always good to meet devs, sadly, with the ISP being down, not as much programming as I liked.

    Even without the internet I had a great time, very much looking forward to the next meetup, especially if it gives me as a complete ruby newbie a chance to understand more about this language and rails in particular

    Loved it! Haven’t had so much fun in ages. I’m already looking forward to the presentations or ruby lessons at the next meet. Well done guys! http://paulgrenyer.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/my-first-nrug.html

    This sounds like a great idea Mike. I might be able to convince someone else to do a Ruby equivalent to show how cacheing is done in Rails or something.

    I think for August we might stick with the idea of an open programming session but if you fancy holding tight on this idea until September, then we'd love to have you speak for us?

    I could do 15 mins on website caching but it would have to be non-ruby specific
