The Silicon Valley Ruby on Rails meetup will have its next meeting on September 25th, 2008! We'll be meeting this month at LinkedIn's headquarters in Mountain View. Very special thanks to Michael Hartl, co-founder of Insoshi, for organizing this month's event and booking the speakers and venue! Insoshi is an open-source social networking platform written in Ruby on Rails. The meetup will start at **7PM**.

We have great speakers lined up this month. Emmett Shear from will be sharing his experiences with "Rails Tricks For Fun And Profit At". is building a destination site for broadcasting and watching live video online while chatting with friends. The company’s mission is to enable viewers and broadcasters to interact and exchange ideas in real time through chat and live video.

Adam Wiggins from Heroku will talk with us about "Instant Rails Deployment to Heroku with Git". Heroku is an online deployment system for Ruby on Rails apps. You can create a rails app via your browser, and then with an online editor, you begin to customize it. Their focus is on providing the popular Ruby on Rails platform with the easiest deployment possible: one that regular users do not have to worry about.

LinkedIn has graciously offered to provide food and drink. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there!

LinkedIn has been using Ruby on Rails for about 2 years. Projects that we
implemented using Ruby on Rails:
- LinkedIn Mobile, a mobile web application which designed for iPhone and
mobile devices which supports XHTML MP. Recently we added support for the
iPhone native application written in Objective C and using Oauth protocol.
- Bumper Sticker, a Facebook application which has 17 million users and 900
million page views per month.
- NewIn, a visualization application created during a hack day which
leverages Google Maps and LinkedIn REST API to display newly joined users.
- OpenSocial Applications, applications that build on top on LinkedIn
OpenSocial platform and will appear on LinkedIn Homepage for the OpenSocial
initial launch.
