#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.

    I started to play with ruby recently, mostly to do UI tests with selenium. Anyone willing to have a beginner on the team?

      Hey Rafael, there isn't really a concept of "teams" at the ruby hacknights. All levels are welcome, and there's others around to chat with and help you out!

      Rafael, how wonderful you speak out of this. Yes, I am the guy same as you, on the testing side, learned ruby on one project with cucumber and watir, webdriver. I am looking forward to meet you and other ruby gurus there.
