Triple Play

As the Cardinals make they way to the World Series we are making our way to three great talks.

• Actor Model - Jessica Kerr

If you like OO programming, then you'll love Actors. They pass
messages and hold state all day long. While the original Actor
framework is Erlang OTP, its ideas have sprouted on the JVM in the
akka framework, and in Ruby in celluloid. This talk focuses on the
concepts of Actors, using akka in Scala. We'll see the beauty and
ugliness of the model, and point out fatal flaws in the Ruby and Scala

• Bitcoin and Ruby - Rich Brumpton

• Live Demo of Ruby 2.1 changes - <strike>Amos King</strike> Charlie Sanders

We didn't stop at the talks of course. Jess Jackson from SBS Creatix is back with door prizes!

We are still looking for drink and food sponsors if you have anyone in mind.

    Left early. When someone brings calzones to the meeting, I just have to get a calzone.

    It's a shame or meetings aren't at TREX like the Python group. We could watch the game from the conference room windows. Almost.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
