Our meetings are open to all experience levels, from total novices to expert Rubyists.
- "Using Vagrant for Rails Development" by Dan Pilone - Rails environments can become a tangle of versions and dependencies, but it's important to have them be consistent across developers' machines. Dan, founder of Element 84 and an author of popular titles for O'Reilly & Associates, will introduce us to Vagrant, a solution for automating this work to provide consistent VMs as development environments for your entire team.
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 Gallery Place / Chinatown (Blue and orange lines).
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 Dave Naffis and Jim Gay 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 to a nearby bar after the meeting, to unwind and socialize with fellow techies.
