Rahoul Baruah (aka Baz) will be giving us a 20:20 on "Why Rails programmers are so smug" - an outline of his favourite features of both Ruby and Rails, and how they can help you build web applications quickly and easily.
There's still one scheduled 20:20 slot free so do get in touch if there's something you'd like to get off your chest...
In true tradition we will honour our turn-up-on-the-night-with-a-20:20-slot, where it's left up to the GeekUp crowd to decide on the night who gets to talk. The 20:20 format is outlined on the GeekUp wiki but it's essentially 20 slides, with 20 seconds per slide.
What is GeekUp?
GeekUp is a community of web designers, web developers, and other tech-minded folk from the North. Our socials take place once a month in Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester and are always a lively place to share ideas and spread a little knowledge.
Who can attend GeekUp?
While the focus for GeekUp is predominately web related anybody involved in the technology industry is more than welcome to attend a GeekUp. The monthly events are free, we just ask that you buy your own beer.
