Ruby Tuesday - Monthly Meetup


This month, Jeff Casimir of JumpstartLab will be giving us a talk on i18n (Internationalization), and Cam Stevenson will be doing a Lightning Talk on Windows Azure with Ruby.

Time and Place

  • Date: November 27th, 2012
  • Time: 6:30pm
  • Place: Shopify Annex. See this map link for door location.
  • Bring: Yourselves :)

Plan on coming? Let us know…

We hope you can join us. If you could RSVP here, that would be great.

1) Announcements and Introductions

We’ll mention any announcements briefly, and then go around the room and introduce ourselves and what we’re working on. This will be a good way to break the ice, and get to know each other a little.

2) Live (remote) talk by Jeff Casimir

This month, the amazing Jeff Casimir will be giving a remote talk (via Skype) on Internationalization and Localization!

Here's the synopsis:


== Internationalization & Localization ==

It's one of those features that we put off far into the future: "we'll internationalize when everything is done." Like when it exits "beta"? Riiight -- just after you rewrite your test suite and document all your code!

There's no reason to be scared of I18n in Rails, and it's easy to start using it early in your process. Let's take a look at how it works, strategies / patterns for success, and how it actually *improves* your Ruby.


So come on out and learn how to make your Rails app better with I18n!

3) Break / Food and Networking

Yes, we feed you (courtesy of Shopify). Eat, drink, meet some Rubyists! :)

4) Lightning Talks!

After the break, we'll have a Lightning Talk by Cam Stevenson on Windows Azure with Ruby. Here's the outline:

  1. A quick intro to the new, open Azure
  2. Ruby & Azure with waz-storage
  3. Tips & Tricks

Note: We're looking for one or two Lightning Talk speakers for this month. In case you don't know, a lightning talk is a short 7-10 minute talk on a topic of interest. Post a message below or email an organizer if you're interested / would like to learn more.

    Hey I have a meeting tonight but I'd really love to hear Cam's talk on Azure and Ruby. Roughly what time would his talk start? Or would any of his notes / slides be available after tonight? Thanks

      Okay great thanks I'll try and make it for 745 ish to make sure I hear it. Thanks

      No problem. Sorry, to answer your other question: yes, the slides will be made available afterwards. Also, now that I think of it, Cam's talk will likely start between 8-8:15pm.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
