We program, frequently in Ruby! Come if you are interested in programming computers.

Imposters Welcome

If you’re from a background which isn’t well-represented in most geeky meetups, come along – we want to make a difference.

If you’re from a background which is well-represented in most geeky meetups, come along – we want your help making a difference.

If you’re worried about not being computer enough, come.

If you think you’re an imposter, come.

If your day job isn’t code, come.

This isn’t a group of experts, just people.

We are interested in the social and technical problems.

This is a support group. No-one knows what they are doing.

The Rules

A code of conduct applies at Miami Ruby Brigade meetings.

  • We want to be inclusive; do not engage in homophobic, racist, transphobic, ableist, sexist, or otherwise exclusionary behavior. Don’t make exclusionary jokes. Don’t even make them "ironically".
  • Don’t harass people. Unconsented physical contact or sexual attention is harrassment. Dressing or acting in a certain way is not consent.
  • Aggression and elitism are unwelcome here — computering is not a competition.
  • Although we frequently meet in a pub, there is no expectation or pressure to drink alcohol. Don’t question anyone’s choice of drink.
  • We’d rather you ask about gender than assume, and if you get it wrong, apologise, and use what they prefer.
  • We think feminism is a good thing. Discussion of how to make computer more inclusive is welcome. Claims that this "has gone too far" aren’t.

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.
