Project Night - Open to All Web Developers!

Come on out to Project Night!

Bring a Ruby/Javascript/Python/PHP project to work on, even if it's just an idea, sit around the tables and hack alongside fellow web developers.

Make some progress on your project, get your questions answered, share advice, make connections, collaborate on an app, or volunteer to help out some of the newer developers.

All skill-levels are welcome and encouraged to come!

If you don't have a project, don't worry, we'll finds something for you to do. ;)



Because one of the best ways to level up your skillz is to work on a project, and Project Night is a great way to do that!

Not only that, but sometimes it's good to just feed off of the energy of a room full of people doing the same thing as you.


Time and Place

  • Date: Tuesday, May 7th, 2013
  • Time: 6:30pm
  • Place: Shopify Annex. See map link for door location.
  • Bring: Yourselves, your laptop and a project to work on.

Plan on coming?
RSVP here

Beginners are welcome!

Don't feel shy if you're a beginner. This is a judgement-free zone, and we'll have volunteers will be on hand to help out.

For Ruby Developers: If you don't have Ruby installed yet, you should still come by and we'll try and help you get it up and running. But if you can, try working through this install guide beforehand. This way, you can hopefully jump right in to working on your project. :)

Up for Volunteering?

We can use extra hands and minds to help answer questions in your language of choice. Just show up ready to help out, and let us know you'd like to volunteer when you get there. :)

If you'd like to register as a volunteer beforehand, please reach out to one of the organizers.

Don't have a project idea yet?

The project you choose doesn't have to be anything fancy, and you can always switch to another project whenever you get a new idea.


Here's a few ideas get your creative juices flowing:

  • A fancy blogging app, with an admin panel for writing drafts and publishing posts
  • A web-based chatroom that can accept file / photo attachments (i.e. a Basecamp Campfire clone)
  • A personal contact management app. Profiles for the people you've met (i.e. Bascamp Highrise clone, for personal use)
  • A simple project management app, based on how you'd like to manage your projects
  • A photo-sharing app, like Instagram, but web-based with drag and drop support
  • A time-tracking app (i.e. a Freckle / SimpleTimer clone)
  • A voting app to let group members submit topic proposals for Lightning Talks, and have the group vote. Sorted by most votes.


You can also choose your ideas based on what you want to learn (e.g. Node.js, HTML5 game development, etc.).

Come on out, it'll be fun!

We hope to see you there,

The Ottawa Ruby Team
