#VANRUBY Hack Night

#VANRUBY hack nights 

We will be running a special "upgrade clinic" this time, see below for details!

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!)

Upgrade clinic - Rails 4.1 is just around the corner! Bring a working Rails 4 app with tests, and we'll try to upgrade it to run on Rails master and see what breaks. Then we'll walk you through on how to triage the problems and file helpful bug reports.

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.

    Sorry, I can't make it tonight either. I ended up getting swamped with some last-minute work, and could maybe put it off until tomorrow, but then I'd miss the lightning talks. :(

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
