#VANRUBY Hack Night

#VANRUBY hack nights 

Every 2 weeks on Tuesday we get together to hack on cool stuff.

Bring a your laptop and hack away on your favourite open source projects. Got a problem that you keep running into? Maybe it's time to fix that for everyone! Wish the Gem you use at work comes with better documentation? Have a cool idea for a new project? Come and make that a reality! Want to contribute to open source but looking for some pointers on where to start? This is the right place to be!

The format is very relaxed. Drop by when you can & leave when you want. We hold an informal standup at 6:30 for people to share what they are working on or would like to do that evening.

Rails helpdesk - members of our community on rotation will be running a Rails helpdesk in the corner of our venue space. We'll be there to answer your questions, problems with gems, bugs, etc. (Remember though we aren't going to build your next startup!)

Let's work on making the world a better place, one hack night at a time, and have fun while doing it! See you there.

    Organizers, I'm wondering if you are open to having new Rails developers join you tonight in the kitchen @ Launch. I'm an instructor at Lighthouse Labs and we run our class from the Launch Academy space (next to the kitchen in fact!) There are 5 students in the current cohort and I expect most of them will be interested in the opportunity to meet and receive some mentorship from fellow Rubyists. They are currently in the process of wrapping up their 2nd rails app and will be starting on their 3rd today. I think it would be a great opportunity for them.

    Let me know if this is okay and I'll let them know. Cheers,
    Khurram Virani

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
