Silicon Valley Ruby on Rails Message Board › Beer and Scripting SIG

Beer and Scripting SIG

Rich M.
San Bruno, CA
Post #: 10
Some folks here might enjoy the Beer and Scripting SIG. It's an informal (and quite eclectic) gathering of scripting enthusiasts, taking place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

In case you were wondering, the discussions at BASS gatherings are not, erm, scripted. Rather, they reflect the interests of whatever scripters happen to show up that evening. One recent gathering focused on databases (especially PostgreSQL); other gatherings have discussed the vagaries of doing scripting for a living, which languages folks like (and why), etc.

Sometimes, folks bring in books that they have recently read, software that they want to show off, etc. The informal nature of the gatherings allows this, as long as it doesn't conflict with important things like ordering and eating food!

Also note that the calendar of Bay Area Scripting Events is available and open to submissions (all your BASE are belong to us :-).


and that the list of local scripting groups is online at
