Portland Ruby Brigade monthly meeting
We'll have pizza & beer starting at 6pm, so stop by early if you want to have dinner and socialize before the presentations. This month's meeting is on the 5th floor.
PRESENTATIONS at 7pm
Is there something that has piqued your interest, gotten your goat, or filled your inner-child with wonderment lately? Please share it with us as we do some informal (any length from 30 sec to 10 min) talks. Could be about code, but could be about anything really. So come and share!
Lauren Voswinkel: Conway's Game of Life Code Retreat.
"We'll take 30-45 minutes to work on Conway's Game of Life. Pair programming is highly encouraged, but is not required. We'll take some time to talk about what we learned during the exercise, as well as what approaches worked and what didn't. The whole idea of this exercise is to have a space and time to actively practice coding."
Please Bring Your Laptops
After presentations we'll have more socializing time.
Thanks to New Relic for providing the venue and beer, pizza & snacks this month!
ARRIVING BY BIKE? Cyclists are welcome to park their bikes in the New Relic office. Bikes are not allowed in the building lobby, however, and must use the freight elevator. To get your bike up to the 5th floor, enter the building's parking lot by going down the ramp at 5th and Pine. Go past the booth -- no need to pick up a ticket -- and turn right. Go straight until you almost run into the elevator lobby, then go right again. On the back side of the elevator block you'll see a beat up pair of double doors marked "freight elevator." You can get up by buzzing in with the intercom, and saying you're here for New Relic. Ride on up to the 5th floor, you'll easily find the bike parking.
ABOUT THE GROUP: The Portland Ruby Brigade, also known as pdxruby and pdx.rb, is a user group for Ruby programmers in the Portland, Oregon area. The group welcomes all programmers interested in the language and its implementations, tools, libraries and frameworks, such as Ruby on Rails. The group has been meeting since August 2002 for presentations, demos and discussions. Every month 35-75 people come together to share their knowledge, projects and enthusiasm for Ruby. If you'd like to present or have a topic you'd like discussed, please post to the mailing list. The group usually meets on the first Tuesday of the month, "Ruby Tuesday" -- see you there!
