July 2009 Boston Ruby User Group - Ruby Craftsmanship

This month's meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 14th at Sermo, 215 First Ave, Cambridge on the 4th floor. The meeting runs from 7 to 9pm, but you can arrive after 6:30.

Food and drink provided by Sermo.


This month, Greg Brown will be presenting "Ruby Craftsmanship":

Ruby as a language is special because it knows how to get out of our way and let us focus on our problem domain. But how do we move beyond raw technical understanding to actually improve our craft? This talk will focus on some techniques that help, and maybe debunk a few myths along the way.

The floor will also be open for announcements, job postings, and lightning talks.

Afterward the meeting, we will probably be making the monthly pilgramage to the Cambridge Brewing Company.


Please RSVP through Eventbrite so we can get accurate numbers for food.

Special Thanks

Many thanks go out to:

  • Sermo for providing the venue, food, and drinks
  • Engine Yard for donating a slice for hosting bostonrb.org
  • O'Reilly for donating copies of Greg's recently released book, Ruby Best Practices
