PDX Ruby Monthly Meeting
Microsoft Pearl Office

RSVP required, now closed.

The February meeting will be held at Microsoft where we're going to hear from Scott Hanselman on personal productivity and being a social developer. We've heard from Scott before and can confirm that he is an excellent speaker with solid advice that will help you make the most of your career in tech.

You can check out some of Scott's huge volume of technical content on his website hanselman.com. There are plenty of blog posts, talks and podcasts to give you a good idea of how fortunate we are to have Scott come join us to speak.

Due to space limitations this event has a hard cap of 60 attendees. We're also going to need to submit a list of attendees to security ahead of time so it's vital that you RSVP if you're planning to attend. With that in mind please don't RSVP if you're not certain you can make it, as we expect we'll end up turning people away for a seat you're not planning to fill.

Our second speaker of the evening will be the new/old organizer of PDX.rb Jonan, with an update on the present state of PDX.rb and the Ruby community at large as well as some exciting future plans for our community. You won't want to miss it.

Come be social and make some new Ruby friends, we're looking forward to seeing you there!

PDX Ruby Monthly Meeting
Planet Argon

The March meeting will be held at Planet Argon, where we're going to learn about the gradual type checker for Ruby called Sorbet, from Getty Ritter and Trevor Elliott who maintain the project at Stripe.

Abstract: "In June 2019, Stripe open-sourced Sorbet, a fast and powerful type checker for Ruby and a tool that has come to be indispensable for writing Ruby code at Stripe. We’ll discuss why and how we built Sorbet, including how specific choices and tradeoffs affected its design and adoption, as well as the experiences we’ve had in adopting, using, and open-sourcing Sorbet, and where we plan to take Sorbet from here."

Our second speaker of the evening will be the new/old organizer of PDX.rb Jonan, with a look through some rarely explored features of Ruby that may surprise you.

Come be social and make some new Ruby friends, we're looking forward to seeing you there!

Portland Ruby Brigade monthly meeting - Non-relational Ruby data stores: CouchDB, MongoDB, Tokyo Tyrant
Robert Half Technology, 2nd Floor Conference Room

The Portland Ruby Brigade is a user group for Ruby programmers in the Portland, Oregon, area. Join other developers for presentations and discussions about Ruby and its uses.

Some of tonight's presentations:

Igal Koshevoy will give an overview of a few different data stores. He will focus mostly on MongoDB and Tokyo Tyrant; but he will also touch on CouchDB. Igal will discuss the pros and cons of these databases, features, performance and how they stack up to relational databases.

Jesse Hallett will expand on CouchDB with an overview of some Ruby libraries that provide high-level interfaces to CouchDB and an open source ORM he's building on top of it. These are the early days of non-relational databases. So in my opinion this is a good time to think hard about what a high-level interface should look like.

There will be a definite Ruby slant to this meeting. But there should also be a lot of information covered that will be useful to people working with any language.

Markus Roberts will tease and amaze us with a new Ruby mystery code sample.

...and more!
