Ruby on Rails is one of the fastest-growing language/frameworks of all time, and is extremely well-suited to rapid, or agile, development practices. Why then, we asked ourselves, is there not a bigger community of RoR developers in Montreal? Where are they all? We decided to create Montreal on Rails to find out.
Montreal on Rails is our invitation to the Montreal Ruby on Rails community to come out and play together. And by that we mean, code & learn together. With MoR, we want to bring some level of cohesion to the local Rails community and provide a fun monthly gathering point where developers can come to exchange with one another. There will be laughs, there will be tears (hey we can be sensitive - don’t judge) and there will be pizza (bring some cash if you want to partake!).
So if you live in (or around Montreal) and are developing in Ruby on Rails (or want to learn) and speak either (or both) of our official languages, then you are formally invited to come out to our events.

I would suggest Café Campus, around Prince-Arthur and St-Laurent (a little east down Prince-Arthur in the pedestrian area)
Great food, casual setting, alcohol, and decent prices. If not busy it's easy to get some tables together and discuss over dinner and drinks...
(Unless comments are moderated, I attempted to add this comment on the MoR site and received no error - nor was the comment added?)
