Parking is always free - turn left just past the USS Cod, go to the left of the booth (there is no gate and you don't have to pay) and grab a parking spot. Walk to the boat. Once, on the boat, look for signs to direct you to our meeting space.

UPDATE: Due to a schedule conflict we need to reschedule this meetup for Thursday April 5th. I hope this still works for everyone and I hope to see you all there!

Metaprogramming in Ruby gets a bad rap, yet Rails itself is chock-full of metaprogramming. So what is it that separates good metaprogramming from bad? Here we will take a look at some of the problems people encounter when they attempt to wield it themselves, and approaches that can make your own metaprogramming code feel as magical as it feels in Rails

Bradley has lived in six different states but has finally settled into Cleveland, Ohio as his base of operations. He's a lead engineer working remotely for Stitch Fix in San Francisco and will probably talk your ear off about the benefits of the remote life if you give him a chance. He's been a contributor to RSpec on the RSpec core team and wishes he had more time to spend on OSS. You can connect with him on Twitter as @soulcutter

Schedule:
• 6:00 - Open Discussions, Networking
• 6:30 - Announcements, Lightning Talks?
• 7:00-8:30 - Bradley's presentation
• 9:00 - Time to leave
