Recap on Ruby on Rails Newb Night

From: David B.
Sent on: Thursday, June 11, 2009 12:55 PM
Greetings Indy.rb Members:

Thanks to all for a great "Newb Night" meetup event last night. Almost half of the audience at last night's event was made up of first-time attendees! We hope you enjoyed the event and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Last night's meeting featured a live build of "NewbFlow" (RubyFlow clone). Thanks to Miles Sterrett for an outstanding job of leading the group through an iterative build process.

Afterwards, a number of us got together at the Brockway Pub for more discussion and drinks.

If you haven't had a chance to make a meetup in a while, we invite you to come back. Whether you are just getting your feet wet with Ruby and Rails, a curious Java developer, or a Ruby ninja we welcome you to join in the fun. The meetings can be a great way to learn new things, bounce problems/ideas off of others, network and just hang out with a nice bunch of folks.

Ruby / Rails Beginners - What's Next?

If you would like to learn more about Rails I would encourage the following...

1. Check out the "Rails Guides" ( - The guides are designed to make you immediately productive with Rails, and to help you understand how all of the pieces fit together.
2. Hop on IRC and visit the #indyrb room on freenode
3. Attend another Indy.rb meetup - You can RSVP now (
