Open Source Hack Night

Come prepared with an idea or two of some open source ruby that you'd like to hack on, be it a brand new gem, a new feature in an old gem, or just some bug fixing. Come prepared to help someone else out with their idea.


We'll break into pairs, or larger groups, or whatever seems natural - and we'll see how much we can accomplish in two to three hours.  There is no minimum skill level - hacking with other people is a great way to learn, so if you don't have any open source ambitions of your own, or you are still new to ruby, that's okay! Come to help others, and come to learn. Feel free to bounce around ideas in "Talk about this Meetup" below!


Dinner is provided, usually pizza & soda.


Free parking is available at DHF, use the map below to find the lot then come in to grab a parking pass.

    Thanks everyone for coming out. A recap of what got done:

    - Gary built a ClojureScript game of life visualization
    - Alex worked on setting up his Rails dev environment
    - Parissa battled JRuby and JDBC in getting the test suite running on an inherited app
    - Jonathan and I ported some Objective-C to Swift Tasha, Brigitte, and Scott were all busy too, but I can't remember what they were working on. Chime in, guys!

      I truly enjoyed myself, and had a great time meeting everyone. The help I received on setting up my dev environment was right on time! I look forward to future meetups. In the meantime, I'm carefully working through the chapters in Hartl's Rails tutorial.
