Welcome to the Los Angeles Ruby/Rails Meetup Group.  Members generally refer to this group as "LA Ruby". We also have postings where we are referred to as "laruby" and even "la-ruby".  By the way, we have a twitter account which is @laruby and the hashtag is #laruby.  A related group is la.rb which is the group that has the Los Angeles Ruby Brigade Weekly Hack Night.

The Los Angeles Ruby/Rails Meetup Group is for anyone interested in learning or sharing experiences with "Ruby" or "Ruby on Rails".

We meet the second Thursday of each month. The location of the Meetup depends on who is sponsoring. We attempt to rotate between West-side and Northeast side.

This is a thriving developers community through the efforts of everyone involved. Special thanks goes out to Alf Mikula for going beyond the call of duty to make our Meetups extremely interesting and successful.  His devotion to this group has been awesome.

Speaker Proposals: If you have a pertinent subject matter that you'd like to present to the group at an upcoming meetup - please contact myself (JR Fent) or Alf Mikula - with a short bio and description of your presentation.

Membership: This is a PRIVATE organization.  We have the right to deny anyone membership.  If you wish to join, you must fill out the questionnaire truthfully and completely. Please tell us both your FIRST AND LAST NAME. If you do not supply your full name - you will be asked to supply a link to your LinkedIn profile. 

IF IT IS YOUR INTENTION TO JOIN JUST TO RECRUIT DEVELOPERS: Don't bother.  We will not allow you access.

Best Regards,
JR Fent
LA Ruby Meetup Organizer

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
