LA Ruby June Meetup

In June we'll continue our meetup on the first Thursday of the month, so as not to conflict with RailsConf the following week. In July we'll move back to our regular meeting day of the second Thursday. June's meetup will be at Border Stylo in Hollywood. Schedule: 7:00-7:15 Open 7:15-7:30 Introductions 7:30-9:00 Presentations (3 30-minute slots) 9:00-10:00 Open Parking: Pull up to the gate and press the button on the intercom to get into the gated parking lot. If the parking lot is full, park on the street. Presentations:
Rspec-ing your Views
Daniel Dyba A brief intro on using Rspec to test one's view pages in Rails.
REST != Routes
David Henner Most Rails Developers have been using RESTful routes for the past year or two. However there are many things about REST and routes that are misunderstood. In this talk I will explain what REST is and is not. Then I will show how to use namespaces / base_controllers and your shared folder to keep your code clean and DRY.
Targeting Companies Hiring Ruby Developers
Stacey Broadwell Ruby is growing in demand. Attendees of this 30 minute session will learn what companies in LA are hiring for Ruby professionals. Focus will be on how companies recruit, what channels they use, and how to get past HR and in-front of the hiring managers.

    Border Stylo is a great location < 10 minutes from my work location. Beats going over to Santa Monica any day!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
