Tonight: Rails Pub Nite at The Rhino

The fine folks at local development company Unspace have hosted the monthly Rails Pub Nite for nearly two years now, and the event is going strong. It’s a meet-and-greet event where you can hang out with all sorts of people from those who develop in Rails for food to the curious ones wondering what all the fuss is about. It happens tonight at 7 p.m. at The Rhino (1249 Queen Street West, just west of Dufferin).

Ruby/Rails Project Night – Tuesday, February 12th

In a couple of weeks, TSOT — the company for whom I work — will be hosting its second Ruby/Rails Project Night at its offices (151 Bloor Street West, Suite 1130 — that’s just east of Avenue Road), where various Ruby and Rails developers do presentations on their current project or some aspect of Ruby or Rails. The first was a hit, and if you want to see some pictures, they’re here. As usual, I’ll be doing the opening monologue at Project Night, and I promise it’ll be entertaining.

(By the bye, if you missed it and are interested, I’ll show you the slides from the my Project Night monologue, Rant Said Zed, at Rails Pub Nite tonight. Just ask!)
