September 2019 Meeting

The September 2019 meeting of LRUG will be on Monday the 9th of September, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm (meeting starts at 6:30pm). The venue, Code Node between Moorgate and Liverpool St. stations, is provided by Skills Matter. Full venue and registration details are given below.


Computer Graphics for Ruby developers

Stepan Khodzhaian:

Computer graphics is a very broad and deep topic. The purpose of this talk is to show that up to a certain point it is not that complicated and you can get interesting looking results without driving yourself mad with insane mathematical equations, integrals, and whatnot.

How to say no to Salesforce and build your own CRM

Edwin Wills:

In 2016 Rentify decided to ditch Salesforce and build our own CRM tool to help manage our growing portfolio of properties and tenants across London. I'll talk through why we did this, some of the features we've built, and how > we've structured the technology behind it.

Have your Sorbet and eat it too

Ju Liu:

A short and sweet introduction to Sorbet, a type checker for Ruby. Learn how you can use types to write bulletproof code!


This should all finish by 8pm, at which point we break out of the classroom and offer you a choice for continuing the evening with your fellow LRUG attendees:

  1. Code Node. Skills Matter run a bar with a choice of drinks (hard and soft) available. As well as other LRUG members you can network with attendees of the other meetups that Skills Matter are hosting on the same night.
  2. The Singer Tavern. This bar is a short walk north from Code Node (you can find it at 1 City Road, EC1Y 1AG). This pub has a decent food menu on offer as well as a selection of drinks and other LRUG attendees to help you while the evening away.

Regardless of what you choose to do, please remember that this part of the meeting is still covered by our code of conduct even though it does seem more informal.

If you can't attend the talks we'd still be very happy to see you at this part of the meeting. Do come along!

Venue & Registration

Prior to attending you should familiarise yourself with our README paying close attention to the code of conduct which applies to all attendees at the talks and afterwards in the pub.

To secure a place at the meeting you must register with our hosts Skills Matter. It helps to make sure we have the room laid out with enough chairs, and in extreme cases that we get priority on the larger rooms over other groups using the space on the same night. Also, it's good manners, so please do register with Skills Matter.
