March Meetup

  • Mar 20, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

  • Socialising & Introduction: 7pm
  • Pizza & Drinks
  • Talk: Blocks, procs and lambdas ~ Jon Cairns
  • Workshop: Ruby Surgery/Building a User Identity Service
  • Close & (Maybe) Pub: 9:00pm+

First up Jon will be talking about blocks, procs and lambas.  If you're new to Ruby this is sure to be interesting and will show you some of reasons developers love Ruby.

Then we'll be continuing on from last month, answering more of your ruby-related questions and building more of our user identity service in Rails so feel free to let us know via the comments if you'd like us to cover any specific topic or bring along any code samples you're having trouble with.

RSVP: If you are thinking of attending, please let us know through Meetup as it helps us keep you informed of last-minute changes (and we can get a good seating/food plan together).

    Here's a link to my repository which is basically a copy of the identity service we built last time but using rspec for the specs instead of test/unit with shoulda

    @David glad it was helpful! Here's the link: And yes, thanks very much to Omar again for the pizza.

    Cheers Andy - was expecting there to be more beginners there, but hopefully you guys could take something away from it! I'm on holiday during the next meetup, so will see you all in a couple of months.

      pitched it just right for me, Jon. I never think about how you can use blocks beyond the basics so hopefully you've inspired me to do more with procs and lambdas.

    Thanks Jon for the talk - As I am a beginner, your topic was extremely relevant ;)
    Would you care to share your presentation, I'd like to review your code (for my own benefit)
    @Andy, would it be possible for you to share your test files - I'd like to have a look at the code too.
    Many thanks for organising the meetup (and thanks Omar for the pizzas!). Let's come up with ideas to attract more people for future sessions, definitely worth it.

    Unfortunately I can't make it this month. I am at a conference in London most of the week. Upset to be missing it.
