What we're about

Welcome to the Los Angeles Ruby/Rails Meetup Group. This is a thriving developers community through the efforts of everyone involved. Members generally refer to this group as "LA Ruby". We also have postings where we are referred to as "laruby" and even "la-ruby".

The Los Angeles Ruby/Rails Meetup Group is for anyone interested in learning or sharing experiences with "Ruby" or "Ruby on Rails".

We meet the second Thursday of each month. The location of the Meetup depends on who is sponsoring. We attempt to rotate between West-side and Northeast side.

Speaker Proposals: If you have a pertinent subject matter that you'd like to present to the group at an upcoming meetup - please contact myself (claudio) - with a short bio and description of your presentation.

Membership: This is a PRIVATE organization. We have the right to deny anyone membership. If you wish to join, you must fill out the questionnaire truthfully and completely. Please tell us both your FIRST AND LAST NAME. If you do not supply your full name - you will be asked to supply a link to your LinkedIn profile.

IF IT IS YOUR INTENTION TO JOIN JUST TO RECRUIT DEVELOPERS: Don't bother. We will not allow you access.

Best Regards,
Claudio
LA Ruby Meetup Organizer

There's over 20+ tutorials and they seem to tackle the biggest questions. Looks promising to see so much combined in the two frameworks - so lets explore it. Here's a short list: • How to use React with the webpacker gem and Rails 5.1 • Installation and setup of Rails 5 app with react-rails gem • Setting up a Rails API app and Create React App • Using Redux with react_on_rails • Introduction to ES6 using the react-rails component generator OUR CURRENT FOCUS: • How to use React with the webpacker gem and Rails 5.1 Each week we'll review a section discuss / watch / pair program. //////////=====//////////===== //////////===== What to Expect & How to Prep - Read through the section we're working on before the meetup - If you've got experience, please come mentor. - Be ready to ask questions or share insights. All are welcome and at every level.
