The Atlanta Ruby Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

The Atlanta Ruby Meetup is our monthly main event.


6:30-7:00 Food / Networking
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).

We have an awesome line up this week. Blake Chambers will be teaching us how to use Goliath and Redis to build streaming APIs and Lance Gleason will be talking about some new gems: Passbook (iOS Passbook generation) and Redir (url analytics with MongoDB).

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 limited. If you are willing to walk a few blocks you can likely find a spot.
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.

    Great stuff from the pre-drinks all the way to the after-beers. Heck, even the talks were good!

    Thanks in advance,
