Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby (POODR!)
by Sandi Metz

We get a 35% discount off the list price through this book's publisher, Addison-Wesley, with discount code USERGROUP.


6:30 -- Doors Open!
6:45 -- Intros!
7:00 -- Discuss!*

*We'll divide up the time by chapters, starting each segment with a quick summary for each, then we dive into the topics within, whether with questions, points of interest, dis/agreements, etc.  We are casual, open, friendly, respectful of everyone's points of views and programming levels.

If actual attendance is high, we'll divide up into 2 discussion groups.

Read as much as you can!

    Hi Book Club, Happy New Year! how's everyone's reading? Everyone burning their peepers through the book this week like me? Let's continue to be inspired & share poignant quotes from the book & their relation to your work/studies thus far at the meeting.

    Let us know if you aren't able to come so we can find an appropriate location. If you can't make it, it's okay, you can continue reading & share your thoughts & other points through our Goodreads hub.

    Elle, do we have a place yet by chance?

    Best wishes to you all! -Isa
