    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!

    Event FAQ:

    Q: What is the parking situation?

    A: Parking is in the neighborhood only, though it is free.

    Q: Is there secured bike parking?

    A: Our bike room is downstairs and keycard access only, though we can arrange for someone to be down there and let people in. There are also bike racks outside of the building.

    Q: Should I consider using public transportation?

    A: There is a bus stop across the street, but parking in the neighborhood is ample so it shouldn't be an issue to drive.


    PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
