Social Lightning Talks

A bit late in the month I know, but better late then never!

Our May meetup is kindly being held at Medeo this month and we'll be doing our well received format of Lightning talks we did back in March.

Those that attended RailsConf will be talking about something interesting they saw and I hope others from our community will come forward and provide an interesting talk on work they've done recently.

A lightning talk can be slides or just code in a repl and can be from 2mins to 10mins.

Comment on this meetup if you would like to talk about something so I can get a better idea on who will be talking and others will then know too.

See you on Thursday.

      Or maybe strong parameters .. not sure yet .. will see closer to throwing some slides together

      May 27, 2013

    • Piotr B.

      Ended up creating a micro talk on strong parameters, and a more of a full lightning talk on api testing

      Weston was going to do this talk but then he took off for vacation. That'd be awesome if you could fill us in, Suman.

    I have another event that I have to be at tomorrow night. I would love to make it but I won't be able to arrive until 7:30. Is that too late?

    I'm going to relay some of the Rails security things I heard from a talk you can do today with your Rails app.

    May 27, 2013

    • Kalvir S.

      Loki is going to talk about this now, I'll give a quick overview of Turbolinks - I'm not advocating it. People can make their own judgement on how cool it is :)

      May 27, 2013

  • Loki M.

    I'll be giving a talk called "Rails' Insecure Defaults - Gotchas You Should Know About"

    May 27, 2013

  • Caleb B.

    I'm shooting for the hypermedia api's coverage.

    May 27, 2013

  • Chuck B.

    I'll be talking on how to contribute to Rails, which sounds similar to Godfrey's however it should be more targeted.

    May 27, 2013

  • Godfrey C.

    I'll be giving a talk on contributing to open-source projects and announcing the return of VanRuby hack nights!

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.
