Reading through technical books in a group is a great way to learn. You can stay motivated by reading together; better apply what you are reading by actively communicating it, as well as hearing others perspectives that will help you better understand the book. Even if you're a more experienced developer it's a great way to keep your skill sharp and share your wisdom and experience. If none of that is convincing just come and have fun with fellow ruby developers!

We are starting a new book Working With Ruby Threads by Jesse Storimer. We will be discussing chapters ('Wrap Your Threads in an Abstraction' - 'How Sidekiq Uses Celluloid').

Please come having read the chapters and ready to discuss it.

Pizza will be provided!

Book Summary

Threading and concurrency are hot topics in the Ruby community. Want to join the conversation?

You've probably heard people around you talking mutexes, race conditions, or the GIL. Do you wonder what the heck they're talking about?

This book is a gentle introduction to these concepts and will give you the knowledge you need to become your teams resident concurrency expert.
