IPRUG The source of all things Ruby in Suffolk
The next IPRUG is …er… tonight. We’ve got a talk from Rob Anderson on Rails security, then as it’s nearly Christmas Leeky will be running a Powerpoint karaoke session (don’t worry, there’s no singing involved).
Just over a fortnight to go until the next IPRUG, and as usual I haven’t organised anything yet, so I thought we’d go for another round of lightning talks. That gives you a couple of weeks to think of something you can talk about for five(ish) minutes. No fixed format – if you want to do it Ignite or Pecha Kucha style that’s fine, but so is a simple five-minute talk. Subject-wise, anything that’s at least tenuously related to Ruby is fair game.
As usual it’ll be the first Tuesday of the month (in this case 5 November) Also as usual, we’ll be at the Brewery Tap from about seven, with talks starting at half past (or get there earlier and partake of one of their excellent burgers).
Hopefully everyone had fun doing the LCD kata on Tuesday! I finally got round to putting the code we ended up with on github (probably should have committed after each session, in retrospect).
No talk volunteers again this month (hint hint), so let’s do some coding! I’m going with Adam’s suggestion to do a coding dojo type thing again. Is it really almost three years since we did that before?
I’ll pick a kata and we can rotate round doing paired TDD on the projector (don’t worry, no-one’ll pick on your code)
Usual time and place – 7pm for 7.30 start in the Brewery Tap. Tuesday 1 October.
Firstly, sorry (again) about the web site being missing for so long. After renewing the domain, the DNS stopped working, and thanks to my general laziness and incompetence it took a month to get it sorted.
Anyway, there’s now less than a week to go until the next meeting – Tuesday 3 August, 7pm for a 7.30 start, at the Brewery Tap. We’ve got two talks lined up: Sean Dunn on rails development workflow with tmux, pry etc (originally planned for last month, but foiled by Sean getting a puncture on his way to the pub); and some kind of half-formed wittering from me (Kerry) about trying a more functional style in Ruby. I say half-formed – getting as far as half is kind of an aspiration at the moment, but hopefully I’ll have something by Tuesday.
Hope to see you there!
