December DCRUG: Intro to CoffeeScript and Music Composition with Ruby

  • Dec 9, 2010 · 7:00 PM

We meet monthly at 1410Q (that is both the address, and the name of the office building). It is a converted rowhouse, next to the Bike Rack, in DC's Logan Circle neighborhood. The closest Metro stops are Dupont Circle (Red Line) and U St. (Green/Yellow). Our meetings are open to all experience levels, from total novices to expert Rubyists.

  • Ryan McGeary - CoffeeScript: JavaScript with better syntax

  • Troy Stribling - zgomot, a Ruby DSL for musical composition

We always need presenters, so if you have a topic or project on which you'd like to do a 20-30 minute presentation on anything Ruby-related, Rails-related or possibly of interest to Ruby developers, please email me at josephgrossberg at and we'll schedule you to speak. If have presented before, you are welcome to give a presentation on a new topic. This is a great chance for some of you guys and gals lingering in the back of the room to share some of the cool things you are working on. Don't be shy -- you're among fellow geeks. :) As always, we'll have an ample supply of free pizza and soda for all attendees, so don't worry about eating dinner beforehand. And we'll be heading around the corner for a beer or two after the meeting, to unwind and socialize with fellow techies. Instead of Post Pub, the new neighborhood bar is Stoney's on P St.

    FYI, I've seen Ryan talk about CoffeeScript before and he does a great job. He won an award for it at NovaRUG.
