    Great meeting last night. If you are interested in collaborating on a simple rails project that I have started, shoot me a message!

      No, I was trying to give a loud whoop and holler for Ruby on Rails. I was about 45 min north of Pittsburgh, PA when I got texted about a hellatious accident that had the Interstate all tied up so I had to turn around and head back home up to Erie County, PA. I won't be making it down there from northwestern PA (unfortunately). However, provided the roads are not icy (I live above the snow belt), I would like to come back for when you guys have your Un-conference this Feb.

    Coming to Arlington Ruby for the first time. Anything special I need to know. Pass codes for doors, elevators or anything like that?

      You'll know what you need to after the initiation rites. :D

      No pass codes or etc. You'll be able to walk right into Founders Hall and find the room on the 3rd floor. Cheers!
