NEW DATE PICKED! We had to postpone this event from its original date, but we're delighted to once again offer this awesome workshop: Join us on Monday, Feb. 10th!

Ever wanted to build your own Ruby gem, but weren't sure how to get started?

At this workshop, we'll walk through creating a simple gem from start to finish, demystifying the process and showing attendees how they can make their own Ruby gem contributions.

All skill and experience levels are welcome!

Pizza and beverages will be provided, courtesy of Ten Forward Consulting.


We'll have socializing and networking from 5:30pm to 6pm; you're welcome to arrive anytime in that half hour. Fred's workshop will begin at 6pm.


There is parking in the lot behind Ten Forward's building (accessible via Segoe Road) and on the streets next to the building, which has a wheelchair accessible entrance in the back (by the parking lot). Ten Forward is near stops for the #2, #14, #10, #15, #70 and #6 bus routes. The doors lock at 6pm, so please try to arrive before then.


The building is wheelchair accessible, and has gender-neutral and accessible bathrooms. Children are welcome!
