Hello Seattle Ruby on Rails Meetup Group—I'm excited to announce our 11th Ruby on Rails Educational/Networking Meetup Event, and this is one you're not going to want to miss!
A big thanks to Blue Box Group for their support and sponsorship.
And thanks to Amazon for hosting us in their Seattle offices, and Big Cartel for buying our food and drinks!
IMPORTANT: You must RSVP (it's free) to get into this event. Since the Amazon building is secured, only those that RSVP will be allowed in. If you don't RSVP, we won't know you're coming and you won't be allowed past security.
Our Educational/Networking meetups are always a ton of fun.
Come meet and hob-nob with other smart and influencial techies and Rails devs in the Seattle area, hear 1-2 short presentations, have some drinks, make new friends.
Quite a few people have found new jobs and business partners by coming to these meetups too.
You asked for it, you got it. This meetup is all about great designing in Rails. Our speaker will be Jeff Johnston, a wonderfully talented Rails engineer at BigCartel.com.
If you're unfamiliar with Big Cartel, they make beautiful, fully customizable web stores for artists, indie brands, and musicians—all built on Rails. I've been using Big Cartel's products for over 2 years, and love their products and design philosophy.
Jeff will be speaking about using Rails efficiently to build a hugely successful business, Big Cartel's design process, and why Big Cartel chose to build their platform on Rails instead of other technologies.
