Title: How to Get a Basic Rails Site Up and Running by Josh Kemp (presentation starts at 7 PM)
Josh Kemp will give a presentation geared to newer Rails developers, where people can follow along and we make a basic web app, and then add a little CSS to make it look a little more spit and polished.
Speaker: Josh is 28 years old has been self employed as a Farrier (shoes horses) for the past 7.5 years. Josh finally found his true passion, RoR, and for the past 8 months he has been sold out to learning RoR and related technologies. In the past 8 months he has averaged over 21 hours per week studying, attending local meetups and pair programming. Josh has currently 750+ hours learning/studying RoR. Josh blogs here.
Food: We will have food and drinks provided by Altamira (the new name of Near Infinity). Also, we will have some Stroopwaffels from AppSignal, purveyors of Roy Tomeij's awesome Rails monitoring software. If you have not had a Stroopwaffel, come to this meeting just for one of those!
