Hi everyone,

Thanks for coming out on Tuesday! The new meeting space in the Shopify Annex is pretty darn sweet.

The summary for Tuesday's meetup is up on the blog. You can see the slidedeck here.

Next month: Jeff Casimir returns for a talk titled Adventures on the Golden Path. Here's the abstract:

Adventures on the Golden Path
Rails 1.0 was about proving we could build the same functionality as the other web frameworks, but doing it faster.

Rails 2.0 was about pushing the vanguard forward, setting new trends for how the web should be built.

Rails 3.0 paid down technical debt and laid the foundation for our future.

Now what?

Rails has always guided developers down the "golden path" of best practices. Let's look at potholes needing filling, ways we can straighten the dangerous corners, and figure out where this road might be heading.

Sounds like fun. :) Some of this content may lead to insights into how we can improve our code today, while we're waiting for Rails 4 to arrive.

In other news, Russ Olsen (author of Design Patterns in Ruby and Eloquent Ruby) has agreed to give us a talk! :) We're going to have a survey to vote on the topic for Russ' talk, so please keep an eye out for it and cast your vote. 

Thanks again for coming out, we hope to see you next month.
