December 2008 Meeting

LRUGers (R0012228)

The next meeting of LRUG will be on Monday the 8th of December, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Our hosts Skills Matter have provided their overflow venue The Old Sessions House on Clerkenwell Green for this meeting because of the number of registrations. They still want you to register your attendance though, so you can be let into the venue.


Javascript Testing

Javascript Testing (R0012224)

Chris O'Sullivan loves testing, and it's been eating away at him that he can't test the javascript he writes for his rails apps. In this talk he'll be showing off how he finally worked out how to test this stuff and return to the shores of Testingland.

A video of Chris's talk, filmed by Skills Matter is available on Google Video.

Ruby Vs. The World

Matthew (R0012230)

Matthew Rudy Jacobs has been comparing Ruby against how other languages do similar things. In this talk he's going to present his findings and suggest some things that as Rubyists we might learn from our alternate language using brethren.

A video of Matthew's talk, filmed by Skills Matter is available on Google Video.


At the end of all things, one fact will be carved upon the smouldering husk that was once this earth. That fact shall read:

After each LRUG meeting, the assembled masses did reconvene at The Crown Tavern, but a short distance from the original meeting point, and from there did imbibe boozes. All were welcome, even those who couldn't make the main talks. And there was much rejoicing in the tavern."


Please register with Skills Matter if you are planning to come. Registration allows Skills Matter to organise the most appropriate room for the number of people coming. In the past we've had to turn people away who didn't register because the room was full and there was no room for extra bodies. We don't like having to do that, so please register now rather than later (Skills Matter need about a weeks notice to book the larger room) and secure your place.

There's also an upcoming event for those of us that love online calendaring, but this is not a place to indicate attendance in a meaningful way for Skills Matter.
