Our meetings are open to all experience levels, from total novices to expert Rubyists.
Sean Marcia - Ruby in 79AD (Open Sourcing my Role as Indiana Jones)
I'll demonstrate a practical guide on how you can get involved with neat projects by partnering with academics to build open source tools. We all have the ability to be Indiana Jones and I'll show you how through my experience.
Ross Kaffenberger - Enumerable - Why I Fell in Love with Ruby
Rediscover the single greatest module in the Ruby programming language, see how it can be used to solve a range of problems, and (possibly) fall in love with Ruby all over again.
We now meet at Optoro's Chinatown location at 702 H St NW, Suite 200.
We always need presenters, so if you have a topic or project on which you'd like to do a 30-minute presentation on anything Ruby-related, Rails-related or possibly of interest to Ruby developers, please contact our organizers [masked] and we'll schedule you to speak. If you have presented before, you are welcome to give a presentation on a new topic. This is a great chance for some of you guys and gals lingering in the back of the room to share some of the cool things you are working on. Don't be shy -- you're among fellow geeks. :)
As always, we'll have an ample supply of free pizza and soda for all attendees, so don't worry about eating dinner beforehand.
And we'll be heading to a nearby bar after the meeting, to unwind and socialize with fellow techies.
