#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.

    This is probably not the right place to get started with Ruby, but it would definitely help to connect with a few Ruby devs in the industry.

      It's definitely the right place to get started! Bring your laptop, do any tutorials you like, and if you get stuck there's folks around to ask questions.
