Hello Seattle Ruby on Rails Meetup Group! I'm excited to announce our 4th Ruby on Rails Educational/Networking Meetup Event!
When: Wednesday, July 7th,[masked]:30 PM.
Where: Whitepages.com has generously offered us use of their very nice meeting space in their Rainier Tower offices.
Rainier Tower, Floor 12 1301 5th Avenue, Seattle, WA
Building Entrance and Parking: People should enter on 5th avenue across the street from the 5th avenue theater. It's the entrance by "Rock Bottom." The building will close at 6, so this will be the only entrance into the building.
We'll have signs up with cell phone #'s to call in case we have very late arrivals.
As for parking, there are lots in downtown but they will be pricy. If you *must* park downtown it's usually best to walk 3-5 blocks from either Pacific Place or the Convention Center due to the lower prices and ease of access/safety. It will be after hours so street parking might be available also.
For public transportation, the closest bus tunnel entrance is University Street and most of the major bus routes have stops by our building on 4th and 5th aves respectively.
You may have heard how wonderfully successful our last networking and educational meetup events were?don't miss this one!
This event is totally free and is a great way to meet and mingle with the best and brightest Ruby devs, Rails devs, and Ruby centric companies in the northwest?be sure to RSVP and let us know you'll be there!
Meetup speakers will be announced soon.
Finally, we are looking for a beer or pizza sponsor, so please let me know if you would be interested in providing either!
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.
