If you're a rails dev, you already know, there aren't a whole lot of resources out there for us, not like there are for php, that's for sure.
I thought it would be helpful for all of us railers to interact, learn, share, network, and hang out.
As far as I know, our RoR group is the biggest and one of the most active in Seattle. We have laid back hang-out style meetups weekly, and every 4-6 weeks or so we try to hold an educational/networking meetup where we can all get together, network, and learn.
At our educational/netoworking meetups, we often have businesses from the area who use Ruby on Rails come talk with us about how they're utilizing it in their respective technologies.
Come join us and and help us turn this .net town into one with a vibrant Rails community.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
