Join us for presentations from our Ruby community. We will feature two 30-minute talks plus four lightning talks.
The first talk will be held by Elastx, a Swedish based PaaS company, providing a high performance alternative to Heroku. They will talk about the limitations and possibilities using cloud platforms and do a live demo of their platform that has native support for Java, PHP and, recently added, Ruby.
The second talk will be Mike Burns presenting "When Not to Use Object-Oriented Programming".
The lightning talks are open to all. We run a lightning talk preparation night (like a project night but just for talks); it's not required, but it may prove helpful.
Food and space are provided by thoughtbot.
Presentation nights are a fun way to keep up with the community. No question is too simple, the talks provide good conversation starters, and Rubyists of all levels will be there. Beginners are encouraged to attend.
