If you are interested in getting a Ruby Certification or just mentoring others, come on out!!!

This event will focus on preparing attendees to take the Silver certification exam. This is a basic skill-level certification of knowledge on the background, grammar, classes, objects, and standard libraries of Ruby.

We are going to use a version of "EduScrum" to work through the subject issues each person needs to know for the exam. After an introduction, we will break out into groups and create a study plan to get each member of the the group up.

There will be pizza!

The Ruby Association Certified Ruby Programmer examinations are intended for engineers who design, develop, and/or operate Ruby-based systems, consultants who make Ruby-based system proposals, and instructors who teach Ruby. Those who are certified are recognized for their skills as Ruby engineers and as having high levels of Ruby-based system development capabilities. Those who pass the examination are certified by the Ruby Association as a Ruby Association Certified Ruby Programmer.

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!
