Our meetings are open to all experience levels, from total novices to expert Rubyists.
• "The Art of Refactoring" by Daniel Marvin
• "Ruby Gotchas" by Dave Aronson
We <3 .rb # => true
But - still .rb < perfect # => true
Though Ruby was allegedly "engineered to maximize programmer happiness", in part by adhering to the "principle of least surprise", Ruby still has some surprising and annoying gotchas. Come see Dave Aronson present an Array, er, a bunch of them, from programming-newbie gotchas to ones that still "get" grizzled veteran Rubyists. This talk, approximately 45 minutes, may save you many hours of frustrated head-scratching (and bashing against the desk) later!
We now meet monthly at Logik's new headquaters, now located at 1400 I (Eye) Street NW, Suite 800 Washington, DC 20005. The closest Metro stop is McPherson Square. If you're downstairs and need someone to let you into the building or the elevator, please give me a call at[masked] or tweet me at @naffis.
We always need presenters, so if you have a topic or project on which you'd like to do a 30-minute presentation on anything Ruby-related, Rails-related or possibly of interest to Ruby developers, please contact our organizers [masked] and we'll schedule you to speak. If you 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 to a nearby bar after the meeting, to unwind and socialize with fellow techies.
