Ruby on Rails in Portlandia! #PDXRAILS

Discuss Ruby on Rails related topics, meet other rails developers and other interesting folks. Presentations, workshops, hack fests and more. While the focus of this group will primarily be the Ruby on Rails framework, we will also be discussing topics encountered frequently building Rails Applications. This could include HAML, SLIM-LANG, the Asset Pipeline, jQuery, React, SASS, and design and business related topics.

All programming skill levels are encouraged to attend.

General Meeting Flow

• First 15 minutes "Meet Your Neighbors" : At the start of every meeting we will turn to the left and turn to the right to meet new people, share what we are working on, and get to know one another. If you are looking for another technical co-founder to pair with, this is your chance to sell that dream you want to build.

• Content Block 60 - 90 minutes : This may include 1 - 2 Presentations 30 - 45 minutes long covering important topics to Rails Developers, hacking sessions on various gems, help Q&A sessions, and more. If you are using rails to build your startup in town, this block would be excellent for you to present your favorite gems and apis and say "We're Hiring!"

• Entertainment Block : At the end of every meeting we will head out to a pub near by for beers, cocktails, ciders, and food. Locations may vary here, and the hope is they have games like pool and darts.

We work hard. Let's get together, learn, and have fun in a relaxed care free environment.

We are all adults here! Don't be a jerk! 

If need to be reminded about how not to be a jerk please read our CoC.  We take these values seriously.
