Hello and welcome Ruby/Rails aficionados!
This Thursday May 7th marks the Spring version of the Toronto Ruby on Rails Project Night. I’ve almost lost count, but I’ve been running these events for just over a year and a half, and there’s been no shortage of interest or involvement!
I’m very happy to say that Robert Nishimura has again stepped up to provide drinks for us this Thursday, in support of Clearfit.com - so please join us if you can! It’s a free, fun and informative way to meet some of the brightest dev talent in Toronto!
This Thursday May 7th, starting at 6pm, Toronto’s Ruby on Rails night is proud to present:
Libin Pan – A iPod Ruby Appetizer
1. Running Ruby shell on iPhone
2. Using Ruby to develop iPhone Apps
3. Using Ruby to help developing iPhone Apps
Kristan Uccello – A 3-Course Meal
1. A crash course in Domain Driven Desing, Behaviour Driven Design and Cucumber
2. Xampl and how it can make your code not suck
3. A quick intro to the new Domainer Platform
Andrew Burke – A Careerious Re-write:
“In the fall of 2008 I rewrote the core application for Careerious.com (now clearfit.com), taking a crufty and poorly-written .NET application and turning it into a cleaner and leaner Ruby on Rails application. The result is a codebase one fifth of the size, major performance improvements, and a lot less Fail. I’ll cover how the project worked out, some of the technical challenges, and show some seriously WTF C# code (and how I fixed it).”
The Spring installment of Toronto’s Ruby on Rails Project Night will be held at the Rich Media Institute in Toronto on Thursday May 7th, from 6 to 8pm.
If you are planning to join us, please RSVP by leaving a comment below OR by adding yourself to the guestlist for the facebook event. Space is limited, so please RSVP to let us know if you and any guests are coming. Looking forward to another great night of RoR insights and project presentations!
Oh, and for anyone who hasn’t seen Star Trek yet… it’s pretty awesome and comes out May 8th :)
