March Meetup

We have two great talks this week.  First Tony Winn will lead us through a talk on Service Oriented Patterns in Ruby, and then Tim Nelson will be doing a talk on Practicing Ruby.  Here's a longer description of the talks.


Service Oriented Patterns in Ruby

In this talk we'll go over what service oriented architecture is, why you might want to move your application towards it and introduce common patterns used in the real world. We'll go over finding small ways to get started, handling authorization across applications, implementing a messaging system, and handling shared application logic.


Practicing Ruby


Write code for the sake of improvement.  Improve your coding skills by writing code that doesn’t necessarily provide value.  A professional athlete doesn’t achieve success because he only plays when getting paid.  The same can be said for programmers.  Writing code for the sake of improvement may not be something you can make money on immediately, but the more you improve, the more your stock will go up.

    Great talks tonight. I had a great time learning how to learn and learning more about SOA. Thanks, Rubyists!
