What a fabulous day at TechCrunch Disrupt today! Many startups presenting, connecting with VCs and startups helping one another. It is truly inspiring to see many startups go from an idea to a working product!
I would love to see fellow Rubyists reach that goal. Please - if you need any advice, connections, etc, would love to help! (Email me! [address removed])
Information on our new sponsor:
Ban.jo, an amazing startup that was in stealth mode last year - they sponsored one of our events - They have done extremely well and now have an amazing location in Redwood City! They are looking for Rubyists. I highly recommend you check out their job listings. For our next meetup, you will have the opportunity to meet the Ban.jo team. Our meetup will be in the beginning of October.
