The Atlanta Ruby Meetup is our monthly main event.
This month Andrew Slocum will be giving a talk on "Scaling rails for $7 a day".
We created a high performing rails app on the cheap. With snap-ci, heroku and amazon cloudfront, our team created a site to support a national progressive campaign. Our goal was to get as much performance out of the site as possible, with a minimum of effort and cost. The talk will cover what we did, what went right, what went wrong, and how we're going to build low-cost apps in the future.

Parking on the street is metered. Tickets until 10pm.
There is $1.5/hour parking in a surface lot across the street near Barnes and Noble. Credit cards accepted. The once collapsed parking deck connected to the building is back in service! Cheapest parking is the surface lot across from The Cheetah, I believe they are $4/day cash only.
The Midtown Marta station is a few blocks away, the Tech Trolley (free) runs from it to the door of the Centergy Building.
