The Tampa Ruby Brigade Message Board › Tampa Ruby Meetup Tonight @ 7:00 PM!
Tonight @ 7:00 PM is the Tampa Ruby meetup, where we discuss all things Ruby, Rails, web development, web standards, open source, etc. Or atleast we touch on all those things at one point or another. :)
Although Macs may appear to be the dominant force in the Rails community, we're going to guess that a good portion of you that are new to Rails will be coming from the Windows world. Atleast until you hang out on the Rails related web sites long enough, get bitten by the bug and buy a Mac Book Pro (like me).
For those of you new to Rails, and probably working on Windows, Stephen Maurici is going to do a little walkthrough on how to get up and running in no time with InstantRails - the all in one installation of ruby, rails, apache web server, mysql, etc. Then he'll do a quick tour of RadRails, the free, cross platform IDE for Rails based on Eclipse, with lots of Rails specific goodies.
