With the generous help of Skillsmatter, we’ve arranged a party for Thursday 14th September, to tie in with RailsConf. It’s at a bar called Sequoia @ Ruby Lo, at 23 Orchard Street W1 [Map] (near Selfridges, nearest tube: Bond Street).
It all starts at 9pm and the first 100 drinks are free (courtesy of Skillsmatter), so whether you’re attending the conference or not, come down and join us. Free entry before 10pm, £5 after.

Last night Alex Bradbury gave a great presentation on ARIEL, A Ruby
Information Extraction Library. All agreed that Alex is doing very
impressive work. Some LRUGers are already planning to try out ARIEL for
data parsing in various projects. Thanks for coming to speak Alex!
We’ve added a new announcement segment to the meeting. It’s a chance
for everyone to share releases, news and events with the group. Here’s
a summary of last night’s announcements and pub chat:
