Open Source Hack Night

Come prepared with an idea or two of some open source ruby that you'd like to hack on, be it a brand new gem, a new feature in an old gem, or just some bug fixing. Come prepared to help someone else out with their idea.


We'll break into pairs, or larger groups, or whatever seems natural - and we'll see how much we can accomplish in two to three hours.  There is no minimum skill level - hacking with other people is a great way to learn, so if you don't have any open source ambitions of your own, or you are still new to ruby, that's okay! Come to help others, and come to learn. Feel free to bounce around ideas in "Talk about this Meetup" below!


Dinner is provided (usually pizza, sometimes other stuff), feel free to bring beverages of your own.

Free parking is available at DHF, use the map below to find the lot then come in to grab a parking pass.

    I actually don't have anything in mind to work on.

      That's okay. You can always jump in and pair with someone else on something they're working on.

    Hi: I have Bachelors degree in Comp Science but I have a lapse of 13 years in my field because my kids were little. Now that they are grown up and so are my needs, I want to get back in my field. Do you think that this might be the right place to start because I do not want to come there and feel like I don't belong there yet. Please let me know and I can make it on Tuesday, Jan 28th.

      As long as you are interested in programming, then you “belong”! Folks of all skill levels will be there, so you are most welcome. As they say, it doesn't matter where you start, just that you start somewhere :)
