Thursday Lunch

We meet in University of Iowa ITS Room #2951 in the Old Capitol Mall.

We normally give short talks for other Rubyists in the community.  Sometimes they're longer if someone has something to present.  We've been doing 5 minute lightning talks recently, too.

    Hi guys,

    Looking forward to catching up. Here are some topics in recent Ruby news:

    * Ruby 2.1.0 was released on Christmas. We went over some of the changes at the last meetup. We're running it in development at Continuity Control. Our code only needed minor changes.
    * Ruby 1.8.7 and 1.9.2 will get security updates for at least 6 months, thanks to Heroku.
    * Rails 4.1.0 is in beta. It looks like upgrading from 4.0 will be pretty straighforward. Release notes: http://edgeguides.rubyonrails.o...­
    * Vagrant 1.4, with some contributions from ICRuby friend Paul Hinze
    * Prawn[masked] from friend Gregory Brown

    Also, I thought I should mention that Continuity Control is growing and we're looking for web developers with Ruby and JavaScript experience in the Iowa City area. We're also planning to have another internship this summer. More details can be found here: https://continuity.recruiterbox....­

    See you tomorrow!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
