According to the group survey, the highest demand for LA Ruby activities is for presentations.? Presentations both on the latest Ruby gems and frameworks, and on good programming practices in Ruby were effectively tied for first place.
So, if you have a presentation that you can do for LA Ruby on July 9th, either on something exciting and new in the Ruby world, or teaching us all to be better engineers, please let me know.? We can accommodate presentation lengths from 20 minutes to about an hour.
P.S. Still no one has volunteered to provide a venue for the meetup on July 9th, so it's looking like we'll be meeting at AT&T Interactive in Glendale again.
P.P.S. If there's somebody that you know of who's well-known in the Ruby/Rails community and who is either based in Los Angeles or known to travel to Los Angeles and you'd like to see them do a presentation on something, let me know.
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.
