What do you hope to get out of becoming a member of the Ruby/Rails Meetup Group?

I studied computer science as an undergraduate at Berkeley, and since I've graduated I have been trying to gain as comprehensive a knowledge of programming and computing technologies as possible. Ruby on Rails is something that really created an enthusiasm for me, and I hope to learn and cultivate my skills by meeting other Rails enthusiasts through this group. I have just recently moved to Venice Beach, so I also hope to meet people who can bring camaraderie and companionship. I am looking to start a career in web design using Ruby on Rails, so I also hope to be put in communication with companies that are looking for recent college grads looking to apply their knowledge and bring 100% to the table every day. I am looking to be introduced to a lot of innovative new ideas created using Rails, and companies that are trying to bring a product to market on a whole other level.

Is there anything that you would like to do a presentation on at a Meetup someday?

I am new to RSpec, Jasmine, and Sellenium so I would like to see a presentation on test driven development using these. Using Rails plugins and an introduction to interesting new plugins. Action Mailer in Rails 3. Tips on installing gems and keeping your bundle locked down. Unobtrusive javascript.


I am a recent UC Berkeley graduate, and have a passion for developing in Ruby on Rails. I am 23 years old, I live in Venice Beach, and have an love for music, art, and literature.
