The Atlanta Ruby Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

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.

Schedule:

6:30-7:00 Food / Chitchat 
7:15 til ~9:00: Presentations

We are meeting at the Centergy Building (Hodges Room, 3rd floor) in Tech Square, next to GA Tech (map).

Interested in Speaking? Want to show off your Ruby project or Ruby-related technology? Want to suggest a topic? Let us know!

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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
