ChicagoRuby: Elmhurst - How Do I Build... ?

  • Apr 20, 2013 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The "How Do I Build...?" format is somewhere between a hack night and a presentation.

The key question: "How do I build [X] in Ruby or Rails?" We might talk about the best shopping cart or calendar or whatever for Rails. We might talk about the best way to do database maintenance with Ruby, or the best tools for organizing Ruby or Rails development.

Every ChicagoRuby member is invited to drive. Let the group know what you want to do, what you've tried, and what would be interesting to you. Let's put our heads together and create!

Lunch After the Meeting
After most meetings, we go to lunch at the Elmhurst Restaurant, roughly two blocks NW of the meeting venue. Address: 441 West Lake Street, Elmhurst, IL 60126. Join us!

    Hadn't heard of Andy Lester's ack utilitiy -- a programmer-friendly drop-in for grep on Unix-based systems, but...Nice! It's the ack-grep package on Debian based Linii...Try it. you won't want to use grep for searching code any more.
    Thanks for introducing it to us, Andy.

      Regexp.class_eval {
      define_method( :ack) do |syn|
      syn.scan( self).join
      end
      } ### /syn/.ack 'SYN/ACK/SYN-ACK'­.tr 'A-Z', 'a-z'

      Check your time settings. Bet you're set to Pacific, but we're Central here in Chicagoland.
