    Hi everyone, I know the talk was a long time ago, but I finally published my blog post about it here: http://franklinchen.com/blog/2012/09/06/my-pittsburgh-ruby-talk-nil/

    I welcome any suggestions and comments on the talk, if you still remember it!

    I know that the group usually has Ruby help & discussion @ 6:30pm, then the talk @7:30pm. Will this talk start at 6:30pm or 7:30pm?

      7:30. I just put 6:30 to avoid having to make 2 events
