Ruby Open Source Night

  • May 31, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

We don't do Pizza on these nights since we try get everyone seated and ready to learn by 7:30pm.  Having said that, there should be plenty of beer and you are welcome to show up any time after 6:30pm.

Same format as the hack night but focussed more on a specific open source project.  It's a great way to learn about collaborating, Github'ing, branching, forking, merging, etc.

This is definitely a fast track to learning the ins and outs of contributing to Open Source.

    Apart from a few technical glitches, it was a good meeting.

    Might have been more productive if I'd gone through the setup instructions for the SDRuby app before coming to the meeting.

    Hi Stanley, we have a couple different flavors of meet up.

    This night (the Open Source Night) is dedicated to working on the SDRuby application. We usually have a brief "How to contribute to open source" flavored talk and then pair off to work on open Github tickets.

    We also have a hack night which is more a "work on what you want, get feedback, ask questions" kind of night.

    First Thursday of every month is 2-3 talks and then beers after at UCSD.

    Hi there,

    I'm new to the group and wanted to introduce myself. I'm originally from NY but moved to San Diego two and a half years ago. Most of my days are spent deep in the trenches of RoR development and as of lately, a bit of CoffeeScript-ing.

    I'm curious about the format and style of these meetups. Is there typically a speaker, or is it an open-discussion type of environment?
