TSOT Ruby on Rails Project Night – March Success and April Update

24 03 2008

TSOT recently held another successful installment of their monthly Ruby on Rails Project Night for Toronto’s tech community. The highly anticipated event was the third of its kind for TSOT, Inc., local developer of scalable peer-to-peer networks, and over 40 of Toronto’s ‘tech elite’ were in attendance. With a variety of dynamic presentations on a broad range of projects in Ruby and Ruby on Rails, the TSOT Ruby on Rails Project Night delivers a unique opportunity for the Toronto programming and development community.

This month’s TSOT Ruby on Rails Project Night welcomed a host of presentations from various Toronto developers, including both fun and functional applications being built in Ruby on Rails. Mike Bowler, president of Gargoyle Software and previous presenter, returned to share his technical wisdom on “Exploring the magic behind dynamic finders: diving into ActiveRecord::Base.method_missing”. Following this, local developers Robin Ward and Mike Drach brought their unique sense of internet humour to the table with a look at “RJS: a love and hate affair” in their work with the online RPG ‘Forumwarz’. Finally the feature presenter for the evening Ilya Grigorik, Chief Architect at aideRSS, Inc., demonstrated the challenges involved in “Taming the RSS beast” related to the launch of www.aideRSS.com. Given the balance between technical expertise and innovative ideas, the evening’s presentations struck a very positive chord, with audience members eager to take the opportunity to ask questions, share solutions, and discuss the challenges associated with each of these dynamic Ruby on Rails projects.

The third installment of the TSOT Ruby on Rails Project Night this Tuesday was a great success and given the positive response from those in attendance, this unique event will continue to build a loyal following in the tech community. The monthly event takes place on the second Tuesday of every month, returning on April 8th, 2008 to the TSOT development office at 151 Bloor Street West, Toronto. Doors open at 5:30pm and presentations begin at 6:00pm. This event is free but space is limited; if you are interested in attending, please reserve your spot by emailing corina.newby@tsotinc.com. If you would like to submit a presentation idea or learn about sponsorship opportunities at future events, please contact Corina at (416) 908-6082
