Ruby on Rails Development Hub

What is it?

This is a monthly Meetup event sponsored by reInteractive and Ninefold, where you can bring along your laptop and get coding!

No matter what your experience, beginner to expert, professional Developers from the Community will be there to help you with whatever difficulty you are running into. Whether it be working through a step by step Rails tutorials, improving your app, or code writing tips, we'll be there to help you take your skills to the next level.

Who can Attend?

Anyone can attend the DevelopmentHub. From complete beginners to experienced users of Ruby on Rails, we welcome anyone who wants to come along to improve your Ruby on Rails skills or get advice on the Rails application of your dreams.

For those of you who are fresh graduates of the InstallFest Meetup or have completed the first and second InstallFest blog posts in your own time, Community mentors will help walk you through the next series of articles to continue to develop your Ruby on Rails learning experience step by step.

What does it cost?

Nothing :) It's free!

Will there be food?

Yes, we are organising pizza and drinks for you to munch on while you are working on tough Ruby on Rails problems!

I'm a professional Rails Developer, can I help mentor?
Yes, we are always looking for experts to come along and help :) Just send us an email or RSVP to let us know you'd like to come along.

What have previous attendees said about Development Hub?

“It was a great, casual and supportive environment. I got excellent technical advice and mentoring about developing a start-up with RoR.” - Lance Cohen

“Very impressed with the way it was run, gained invaluable experience.” - Jurgens Smit

“It’s really good and quite surprising that they do it for free” - Rudy Lee

“Enjoyed the opportunity to build on the intro to Ruby on Rails provided at Installfest. It was great to get expert help regarding issues I had working through the subsequent reInteractive blogs. Solving the issues would have been much harder without the assistance of Mikel and his team.” - Eddie Gock

"That was great. I did some more coding afterwards and just the couple of questions I had answered made me more confident of my coding and happier it was going in the right direction. Very helpful. Thanks everyone." - Glenn Morrow

    Hi there, hi Chloe, as a completely begginer, should be better for me to wait for a InstallFest (is it an specific event?)? Thinking about this I changed my RSVP to "not going" tomorrow..... Thanks for advice!
