February Meetup

  • Feb 19, 2014 · 7:00 PM

Stuart Harrison, a ruby developer at the Open Data Institute will be giving a talk entitled "Open Data, Open Development and the Open Data Institute", and he'll be talking about open data in general (what open data is, and what good open data looks like), the work of the ODI, and their open development practices.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the ODI, you can find more information about them at

Following Stuart's talk, Jon Cairns will be taking us on his "adventures with threads and processes in fluffy kitten land", which promises to be an entertaining talk.

As usual, let us know via Meetup whether you'll be attending or not so that we can arrange pizza and drinks.

      Group registration on irc? That seems unlikely. You can just log in and join our channel, there's no restrictions. If you're new to irc then https://www.irccloud.c...­ might be your easiest option to join. The channel to join is #wmrug

    This was a great meetup as learned about ODI and 'multiple threads' so I am still interested in learning about Ruby and to try and catch with the group! Really enjoyed the meetup!

    Really sorry I couldn't make it. I've been in bed most of the week with a fever virus - darn kids, plague vectors! Any notes or slides?

    Perhaps the best one we've had so far. Big thanks to Stuart from ODI (@pezholio) for giving us all something to think about and to Jon Cairns (@joonty) for the funniest talk on threading I've ever seen.
