The Atlanta Ruby Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

The Atlanta Ruby Meetup is our monthly main event.


6:30-7:00 Food / Networking
7:15 til ~9:00: Presentations

We are meeting at the Centergy Building (Hodges Room, 3rd floor) in Tech Square, next to GA Tech (map).

Interested in Speaking? Want to show off your Ruby project or Ruby-related technology? Want to suggest a topic? Let us know!

Parking on the street is metered. Tickets until 10pm.
There is $1.5/hour parking in a surface lot across the street near Barnes and Noble. Credit cards accepted. The once collapsed parking deck connected to the building is back in service! Cheapest parking is the surface lot across from The Cheetah, I believe they are $4/day cash only.

The Midtown Marta station is a few blocks away, the Tech Trolley (free) runs from it to the door of the Centergy Building.

    Oops! MidCity Cafe has closed -- I have moved the pre-meeting social hour to Cypress Street Pint and Place if anyone happens to make it. I'm seated at the NW corner of the bar inside. Sorry!

    Once again, we will be having a pre-meeting social hour at MidCity Cafe around 5:15. Come join us for good drinks and better conversation. Be there or be orthogonal!

    My talk is not about particular gems, or static analysis tools, or particular programming techniques, but about mindset and developers' individual ethics. The big ideas: (1) Security is about balancing risks, (2) security does not have to significantly increase development costs if the developers pay attention in the early design, (3) protecting our users and clients is ethically important, (4) defense in depth means that you always use multiple concurrent mechanisms to protect information.

      1. Looking forward to the talk.
      2. Do you need help with the recordings (given that you'll be on the other side of the camera this time)?

      August 12, 2014

    • Frank R.

      James, that would be a big help! I will make sure everything is charged up with fresh batteries and on the right settings, but help with the camera and the audience microphone would be very much appreciated!

    I am the speaker for this month, presenting on "How a Ruby/Rails developer can help prevent a Data Breach". As I am putting the final touches together on my presentation, does anyone have a pressing security question that you would like addressed?
