    I was wondering what others thought about having different segments to each meeting. I had two ideas in particular.
    1. An open forum where people could talk shortly about challenges or tools/tutorials that they had come across in the previous month.
    2. A warm up dedicated segment geared more towards beginners. Doing stuff like:
    - Creating a rails app from scratch
    - Building a Gem
    - Using a Gemfile
    - Working with git.
    - Debugging in the console with pry or debugger
    Nothing too in depth just something quick to get people engaged.

      Hi Ross. As UI/UX looking over the fence at development, I really like this idea. So much of what I do is read blog post, adopt new technology, hope I'm using it right, that getting a chance to compare notes would be a big benefit.

      Hi Ross. At my old group, we had a couple formal talks, about 40 minutes each followed by exactly what you're suggesting - 5 minute lightning talks from anyone, about almost anything ruby or tech related. Also two shorter talks a night are easier to digest, and give the chance for a mix of beginner/advanced.
