Toronto Ruby on Rails Pub Night: Monday March 13th

by Joey deVilla on February 23, 2006

[via David Crow] First, a quote from Nat Torkington, an editor at O’Reilly and program chair for the O’Reilly Open Source Conference:

Ruby on Rails is astounding. Using it is like watching a kung-fu movie,

where a dozen bad-ass frameworks prepare to beat up the little newcomer

only to be handed their asses in a variety of imaginative ways.”

Which in turn inspired this little bit of Photoshoppery:

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about Accordion City, Ruby on Rails and our lively tech scene. Ryan McMinn from Unspace posted to the Rails mailing list (which I really should join) about having a Toronto Ruby on Rails pub night on Monday March 13th at 7:00 p.m. at the popular local brew pub C’est What (located at 67 Front St. East). Here’s what the posting says:

Spread the word! The inaugural Toronto Rails pub nite will be an opportunity to meet the folks

working on Rails in your community. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss projects you’re

involved with, recruit talent, and even find out what all of the fuss is about!

Unspace wants to support the growing Rails community here, but we felt that a user group was too

formal, stuffy, and intimidating to those that are new to Ruby and Rails. Instead, the best opportunity

for advocacy is something where people can make friends and have fun in an informal setting.

We also welcome people who are working with other, similar technologies. If you are open minded and like

to discuss how we can all create better sites, come share a pint.

In

case you can’t make this one, it looks as though it’s going to be

monthly happening — the next one’s already been scheduled for Monday,

April 17th.
