Wednesday's Meeting, Win a Book

From: Miles Z. S.

Ladies and Gentlemen -

Can you believe it's time for July's meeting already? If someone could lasso summer, slow it down a bit, I'd appreciate it.

July's Meeting
===========

Tomorrow's meeting will feature two speakers: David Baldwin will be giving an overview of testing in Rails, aimed primarily at the many newer developers who will be joining us. Daniel Doezema will follow with an introduction to his RendACL (https://github.com/veloper/rend-acl#rend-acl), a port of ZendACL (http://framework.zend.com/manual/1.12/en/zend.acl.introduction.html). (ACL means Access Control List -- in other words, authorization!)

Win a book!
=========

InformIT/Pearson (https://www.informit.com/) has given us two books to give away this month: Eloquent Ruby and The Rails 3 Way*. In addition, everyone will get a code for 45% an ebook (or 35% a print book. (Check out http://www.informit.com/ruby.)

IMPORTANT: To enter the give away, add your name and choice of books here: http://mileszs.wufoo.com/forms/indyrb-july-2013-book-giveaway/

The form is to make sure those who win really want the book! Also, yes, you must be present to win. 

* Yes, Rails 4 is out. Yes, The Rails 4 Way is almost a thing. I swear I had The Rails 3 Way in hand before Rails 4 was out and before I found out how close The Rails 4 Way is to being finished. The Rails 3 Way should still be a great asset, as Rails 4 is not so different. Plus, Rails 3 is still supported, and many sites are running it today! Probably even all of the ones you're working on.

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow. Have a good one.
