We've found a spot! We'll be at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) office.
This meetup will focus on reading "Rails AntiPatterns" by Chad Pytel and Tammer Saleh. There will be a whiteboard so that way we can diagram and code.
This meetup will be a series of meetups.
Meetup #1 on 2/3: Read up to p. 50. There will be a speaker showing slides of Spahgetti SQL worthy of TheDailyWTF.com as well as a whiteboard.
Meetup #2 (TBD): Read the rest of chapter 1. Bring examples of models with anti-patterns that you re-factored.
Meetup #3 (TBD): Read chapters 2 and 3. We'll have a contest for whoever finds code most like PHP on Github.com . Winner is determined by audience vote. I hope it's not my code. ;-)
Meetup #4 (TBD): Read chapter 4 on controllers. This is definitely a favorite and oft quoted part of the book, especially the secion on fat controllers. Surprise Guest Speaker!d
