FYI, the NovaRUG's next meeting is this Thursday. Should be fun,
everyone loves lightning talks. If you can get out to Reston, you are
welcomed to come and participate.


Oct 21: Rails Engines and Lightning Talks

When: Thursday Oct 21, 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Register: http://novarug.or...­

Food: Food and Drink will be provided by Near Infinity Corporation.

Description: To celebrate the NovaRUG's 50th meeting (yup, 50!), we will open
the floor to lightning talks on whatever subject you want to talk about. As an
added incentive, we will vote, and the winner will get a speaking slot at
RubyNation 2011 including a free pass to the conference (but not me!).
RubyNation will be held April 1st and 2nd next year.

* The Awesome Power of Rails Engines by Sean Schofield (20 minutes)
* The admin_data Gem by Neeraj Singh (5 minutes)
* PolyMaps by Gray Herter (5 minutes)
* Dave Keener (5 minutes)
* git-based Capistrano deployments by Anthony Burns (5 minutes)
* Rack by Scott Leberknight (5 minutes)

Some talks will be more lightning than others, so you can speak longer than 5
minutes if you want. If I know how much time the speaker wants I will make a
note of it. Email me at gray dot herter @ and I will put your
information up here, or just show up and speak.

This will be in NIC's new training center, which is huge and awesome.

Near Infinity HQ
1881 Campus Commons Drive Suite 203 (training center)
Reston, VA 20191

Call[masked] (Gray's cell phone) if you have trouble getting in.

Parking: There is plenty of parking out in front of the building or in the
garage behind it.
