September Meetup

  • Sep 18, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Birmingham Science Park Aston

This month Andy will be talking about Strong Parameters; how to use it in your Rails app and some pitfalls you should watch out for.

That should get you in the mood for some hands-on ruby. Bring your laptops and your ruby problems! We'll be running a workshop session for the rest of the evening so if you're just getting started in ruby and want help getting set up or just some advice on a coding problem, we're here to help.

As with previous workshops, if anyone has any particular problems they'd like help with letting us know in the comments on meetup beforehand will mean that we can prepare any specific material to help.

As usual, please let us know via meetup if you plan to attend so we can arrange suitable amounts of pizza and drinks.

    Sorry - had hoped to make it along to this but had a last minute child care issue. Will try and make the next one!

    Thought I may pop along for this one. I've been meaning to come down for a while, but getting across Birmingham in time has always put me off!

    It's disappointing that I won't be able to attend this month, and somewhat ironic as I was the one who wanted a talk on Strong Parameters. Have a good meet up and hopefully I'll get to Birmingham in October.

    I'm interested in coming to this but I'm already committed to the Brum Girlgeeks mtg on the same night (3rd Wed in month) - is there a chance you might move future meetings so we don't clash? *Justasking* =~)

      Unfortunately, our space at the science park is already booked for the next year on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

      Oops hit enter too soon! I also wanted to add that we were just talking about doing some basic ruby sessions for people who are interested in the language. Perhaps if there's interest from the Brum Girl Geeks we could do a joint meetup in the near future?
