    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 Clean Ruby by Jim Gay. We will be discussing chapters ('Screenplay In Action' to 'East-oriented Code)

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

    Pizza will be provided!

    Book Summary

    • Learn to think about thinking. At the basis of every program lies a human being's mental model. Creating a program which accurately reflects a shared mental model is crucial to building habitable and maintainable systems.
    • East-oriented code. Learn how to better understand encapsulation and create code which enforces that the right objects have the right responsibilities.
    • Data, Context, and Interaction (DCI). Discover ways to flatten your object structure and create highly cohesive groups of objects that keep related things together, right where you need them.

    Ruby Module Q&A

    Renewable Funding

    6:30- 7:30 Really basics in RUBY. Help with installations and setup. Please install as much of the things listed on http://www.meetup.com/Learn-RUBY-PDX/about/ as you can. We will be walking through the first chapter of Chris pine's book, submit a hello world and end with doing q&a on the first two modules in http://teamtreehouse.com/library/ruby-basics (ruby basics and strings).

    You won't need to have done the treehouse work to benefit from this meetup, but it will help retention. There will be some redundancy in the Chris Pine work.

    Expand your Knowledge with The Erlang Games

    Renewable Funding

    This month Casey Rosenthal will lead us through the first session of his Erlang Games. Both beginners and experts alike will have a chance to match brains against seemingly easy problems and learn new and surprising approaches.

    Join us and expand your knowledge of Erlang and computing in general!

    We will be putting hands-on-keyboards for coding.

    If you don't already have Erlang installed on your favorite geekbox, quick instructions can be found here: http://learnyousomeerlang.com/introduction#what-you-need

    Learn more about Casey and his wisdom here: www.linkedin.com/pub/casey-rosenthal/84/24b/163

    Francesco Cesarani - Thinking in a Highly Concurrent, Mostly-functional Language

    Renewable Funding

    Note: Please note the venue change!

    We are fortunate this month to have noted tech luminary, Erlang Solutions founder and O'Reilly author Francesco Cesarini join us.  http://www.oreilly.com/pub/au/3373

    Yale Professor Alan Perlis once wrote, “A language that doesn't affect the way you think about programming, is not worth knowing.”

    To really appreciate the power of the actor model, no matter if you are using Go, Rust, AKKA or Erlang, you need to learn to think concurrently. Erlang has for decades been leading the way in concurrent thinking and developers from different communities and backgrounds have a lot to learn from its approach.

    This talk illustrates by example how embracing the Erlang way of thinking about problems leads to scalable and fault-tolerant designs. It will describe three ways of clustering Erlang nodes within the server side domain, describing how these systems have evolved as the concurrency model and the underlying hardware got more powerful.

    Through these case studies, we will describe how Erlang, and more specifically, concurrency was done in 1995 when the limit of processes was 30,000, with an evolution as to how concurrency is used and applied today, when the limit of simultaneous processes in in the magnitude of millions per virtual machine.

    Informal meeting targeted at newcomers to Ruby. Bring questions. Answer questions. Hack.

    We'll try a different format this time: as you arrive, you can write a topic of interest on the whiteboard. We'll talk a little bit about what the topics are, then split up into small groups to take advantage of the way our office space is laid out. (We even have a few free desks if some people want to pair.)

    Experienced Rubyists welcome; we want you to share your expertise!
