OK, looks like we only got one or maybe two RSVPs for this month's meetup. Probably not enough to warrant a full-blown meetup this month. To be honest, this week wasn't that great for my schedule anyway. Instead, let's just find a time next week when the couple people who are interested can meet up for coffee after work. It will still give us the chance to go over some Ruby code, answer questions, and meet some of the new folks.
I'll contact the two people who RSVP'd offline, and we'll see if there's a good date/time for getting together. Then I'll post the date/time/place here on the meetup site in case anyone else decides to join at the last minute.
Have you heard of the Ruby programming language, or Ruby on Rails, the web development framework? Whether you create software or websites for a living, are a graphic designer, student, or are just looking to learn more about computer programming, these tools are well worth taking a look at.
We're an informal Ruby users' group in State College, PA (next to Penn State University). We usually have a presentation of some sort, as well as some time to be able to just hang out, talk, and learn more about what everyone has been doing with Ruby.
Ruby is truly an enjoyable programming language, and the tools, environment, and community are hard to beat. It's always cool to find other people in the area who have an interest in it too, no matter what level of familiarity you have with Ruby or even programming in general.
