is about two things: smart people and free beer. We start with a panel of experts on a hot topic and follow with an open bar reception, complete with catered food and everflowing libations.

Join us for our launch event on May 22: "Ruby on Rails: To Scale or Not to Scale."

Since hitting the ground two years ago, Ruby on Rails is sweeping the technology community by storm. However, critics note that Rails suffers from persistent problems with scalability, an issue that plagues the framework to this day.

Can Ruby surmount the scalability challenge? To set the record straight, we're inviting four luminaries from the Rails community to speak on their experiences and answer questions from the audience. Our speakers hail from Twitter, Joyent, Sun, and Pivotal Labs, San Francisco's fastest growing agile development studio.

Join us on May 22 from 6 to 9 PM at the elegant City Club in downtown San Francisco. Come for the panel, and stay for an informal catered reception (and open bar) to continue the discussion.

Tickets are $15.00, and can be purchased here: http://www.zaptix.com/group/geeksessions/ruby_event
