Pub Nite #8: Countdown to FSOSS
1249 Queen St. West - 7pm
Lots going on in Toronto this month!
* The Free Software & Open Source Symposium where Hampton and I are giving a Rails workshop
* Hampton releases version 0.2 of HAML, his awesome semantic markup engine for Rails
* Tobias Lutke and Scott Lake from Shopify were in town doing an interview with TechTV
* Unspace launched Pursudo, a focused Rails app for finding cool people so you can get off the internet
At this point there is a core group of about twenty folks that come out regularly; we expect about fifteen heads per outing. The Rhino affectionately refers to us as "their nerds".
We often receive emails from people that wonder if they know enough about Rails to come. The answer is that if you know what Rails is, you should come. At the very least, we can answer your questions and get you even more excited.
Unspace wants to support the growing Rails community here. We feel the best opportunity for advocacy is an event where people can make friends and have fun in an informal setting.
We welcome people who are working with other, similar technologies. If you are open minded and like to discuss how we can all create better sites, come share a pint.
