We'll start our meeting at 6pm with our beginner's track which is open to all but is targeted at newer programmers. Jeffrey Matthias will be giving an intro into the .each method.

The food and beverages will arrive by 6:30pm where you can eat, drink and mingle with your fellow Rubyists for 45 minutes while the rest of the crowd arrives.

Around 7:15pm we'll have our first presentation by Ara Howard. He'll be presenting "Static Is The New Black" which explores how dojo4 rebuild their web site using a classic approach while remaining on the Ruby stack.

Jacob Richardson will follow with a presentation of mysterious qualities. Complexity of software will always grow as a result of adding new behavior. While adding complexity is unavoidable, there are "mysterious" qualities of software that makes it less resistant to change. Let's explore these mysterious qualities from a micro view, and look at how to automate the process of discovering when these qualities are violated. Following up with the ability to examine the structure of the code, let's look at how we could extract meaningful keywords and build a simple code search tool.

Thanks to Pivotal Labs for hosting our meeting and providing the food and beverage. We'll see you all Tuesday night!
