September Silicon Valley Ruby on Rails Meetup - Sept 25 @ 7pm

  • Sep 25, 2008 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 Justin.tv will be sharing his experiences with "Rails Tricks For Fun And Profit At Justin.tv". Justin.tv 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! Address: 2029 Stierlin Ct, Mountain View, CA 94043 And here is the google maps link:

    Good speakers, esp. the guys from Justin.tv and Heroku, both of whom got the right amount of technical meat into their presentations.

    I've uploaded Emmett's slides to the Files section. Adam's talk was almost all Heroku demo, so there aren't really any slides to post for that.

    Interesting talks. More of a focus on company X and what it's product does rather than how to build Z in ruby/rails than I had seen at other meetups, but it was interesting.

    Good energy and an overall fun time with people who have explored Rails and development in general. A very fitting meetup considering it's the silicon valley. Heroku really blew my socks off.
