November 2006 Meeting

Our next meeting will be on Monday November 13, 6:30-8pm. We've got two great speakers lined up.


Ten Things I Hate About Rails

Paul Battley will be sharing Ten things I hate about Rails - insights he's gained from poking into Ruby on Rails' soft underbelly. He'll also present brief highlights from Euruko 2006, the European Ruby Conference.

Slides and more information about the talk are available on Paul's blog.

Bad Things With Capistrano

Tom Ward will encourage us to Do Bad Things with Capistrano, telling us what Capistrano is, what it does and how its usefulness is limited in no way to deployment of Rails apps. He'll also show a couple of the very bad things he's done with it.


We'll kick off with a quick review of activity of interest to the Ruby community - including brief impressions from Rob McKinnon's first virtual attendence at a Rubyists of Second Life Meeting.


Please register to attend at our LRUG page on the Skills Matter site for location details. As usual we'll be heading to the pub after the meeting.
