After “a much-needed summer hiatus” (which you can read as “the complete implosion of Toronto’s worst-run software development shop, which used to host the event”) Ruby on Rails Project Night makes its comeback this Friday, September 19th at its new home at the Rich Media Institute in Kensington Market.
Event organizer Corina Newby promises that it won’t normally be on Fridays, which should the minds of your significant others, party-going friends or World of Warcraft clans at ease. The event is being held on a Friday this time to accommodate the schedule of special guest James “Smalltalk Tidbits, Industry Rants” Robertson, who’ll be there to give us a presentation of the Smalltalk-based web application framework Seaside and the Seaside-based Smalltalk development environment WebVelocity.
Also scheduled is local Ruby on Rails developer Paul Doerwald, who’ll be doing a presentation on insights he gained from working with ActiveRecord validation.
As always, one of the greatest benefits of these gatherings is actually meeting local developers who work with or are interested in working with Ruby and Rails. It’s good for you, your software development career and the future of Accordion City as a hub for high-tech when gatherings like this take place, so be a part of it!
By the way, did I mention that the event is FREE?
Once again, the date is this Friday, September 19th at the Rich Media Institute (156 Augusta Avenue). The presentations will start at 6 p.m. and run until about 7:30. If you’re planning to attend, let Corina know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
