The East Bay Ruby Meetup Group Pages

Ruby is the new rising star in scripting languages. It was created over ten years ago by Yukihiro Matsumoto, a.k.a Matz, but was always in the shadows (except in Japan) behind Perl, PHP, and Python. It suddenly made the big time when Rails added a full web and persistence framework that brought fun and simplicity to creating highly interactive Web 2.0 applications.

This group is for anyone who is interested in learning what all the buzz is about or would like to share their experiences with Ruby.

"Ruby is the interpreted scripting language for quick and easy object-oriented programming. It has many features to process text files and to do system management tasks (as in Perl). It is simple, straight-forward, extensible, and portable."

Ruby on Rails
"Rails is a full-stack framework for developing database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Control pattern. From the Ajax in the view, to the request and response in the controller, to the domain model wrapping the database, Rails gives you a pure-Ruby development environment. To go live, all you need to add is a database and a web server."
