Second Sacramento Ruby User Group Meeting

Sacramento’s Ruby community is beginning to organize for regular meetings. Our first meeting about three months ago was more of a introduction and chat session. Several members had been to Rails Conf 2007 and had plenty to talk about.

We met again at Invision in Old Sacramento and talked about some organizational items:

  • Ryan is acting as our organizer and we’re glad to have his energy in the role.
  • Starting up regular monthly meetings. Looks like we’ll vote on the Google groups mailing list and the first Tuesday or Thursday of the month will be the candidates.
  • Meetings will be held at Invision as Old Sacramento is reasonably central to where everyone comes from.
  • We should have some short talks next time. One on the newer version of Capistrano and one on RSpec by myself. There was also a Django developer there who may do a talk on comparing current Rails and Django.
  • People were interested in hearing from Mike Culver on Amazon web services so I’ll try to contact him about scheduling a talk.

We also grew our second meeting from four to five people so we’re a bustling community.
