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: Wednesday, August 28th, 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 volunteers will be on hand to help out.


On "the project"

Don't have an idea for a project? Try picking your favourite web app, thinking about how you'd improve it, and making a better version of it. Add in your personal flavour. ;)

You can also get some ideas by choosing something you want to learn (e.g. Node.js, HTML5 game development, etc.), and cloning an existing app using that technology.

Or, pick your favourite mobile app, and make a web-based version of it.

Still nothin'? No worries. Join us and see what others are working on. You'll be inspired. :)


Come on out, it'll be fun!


We hope to see you there,

The Ottawa Ruby Team

    Someone at the Javascript meetup approached me about doing a drone-related project at the Project Night. If there's any interest (and the organizers are willing) I can bring one along. Let me know!
