     It is a great group of people.

  • State College Ruby Group

     It seemed that most of the individuals attending had little to no prior Ruby/Rails experience, which actually surprised me. During the first hour of the meetup (all I stayed for), the group (mostly) got through installing RVM, Ruby 1.9.2, and Rails via terminal with some one-on-one troubleshooting going on. This was nice to see, but neither what I was expecting nor looking for. Ruby was my first experience with programming, and I learned it simultaneously with Rails 1.0. I've maintained an active interest in both since, and am currently employed by Penn State doing Rails development (though I am far from any sort of expert). I guess I'd been hoping that the group would focus more on Ruby (metaprogramming, gem creation, advanced blocks, etc.) than on Rails, as there is likely more I don't know about the former than than the latter. Still, it was nice to local interest, and I'll likely be at future meetups regardless. :)

     This group is a great place to learn about the Ruby programming language, web development, and refining your object-oriented programming skills. There are a lot of demonstrations of the latest and greatest thing in software development and web applications, including how it was done and how you can use it in your next project. We usually hang out for a little while afterwords to socialize, help people solve a particular problem that they've been working on, or see some ad hoc demonstrations of what's new in the field. But it's also a fantastic way to meet and network with other people in the area who work within the same field. You never know if you're going to meet that future friend, customer, employer, or employee here. Oh, and free pizza.
