Welcome.

I saw you RSVPed for our October meeting, so I look forward to seeing you there. We'll be talking about Nokogiri this month so it should be related to what you've been doing. Are you learning on Rails 3.0 or 2.3? Also, I don't think we have any Python haters around, so I think you'll be safe. I save my animosity for the PHP guys anyways. :-)

Hello all, my name is Denis Harrison. ��I've got a dirty little secret
- while my day job is using python and adding features to (overused
word alert!)web frameworks for this or that company, I'm jealous of
some of the things Ruby on Rails (and other things on Rake, and Ruby)
can do. ��One of the biggest attractions to me is how insanely awesome
RSpec is, and how relatively painless migrations can be. ��I want to
give Ruby and it's existing frameworks a good tryout, and I figured my
local RUG would be a good intermediate starting point. ��I hope to
learn from/with you all. ��I've spent the last few weeks (aside from
getting married and such) dabbling with Rails on my off time, and have
pair programmed up a prototypical downloader. ��It uses nokogiri for
parsing, and yaml for recipe stanza (ie, railscasts is a recipe, so we
can keep the videos locally - because I have a not so studly satellite
connection, I have to schedule when I can get large downloads going).
Anyway, this intro is getting long at this point.

Hope to see you all soon (New Orleans is a 50 minute drive for me from
Amite, so I'll try to make it as often as possible).

Also, if anyone has experience with mountable apps (engines) if you
wouldn't mind a discussion over implementation details - I'd
appreciate your opinions/theories.
