September 2020 Meeting

The September 2020 meeting of LRUG will be on Monday the 14th of September, from 6:20pm to 8:00pm (meeting starts at 6:30pm). In keeping with the times, our meeting will be online.

We'll run the meeting on our own zoom account, so make sure you have the zoom client for your preferred device, or know how to attend via the web.

Full registration details are given below, note that we will only be sending out the zoom meeting url to people who have registered, so please do make sure you do it.


We've got two talks lined up for you this month. We also need more talks for the rest of year, and beyond, so please get in touch on if there's something you'd like to say to LRUG.

Wizards without magic

Duncan Brown:

Multi-step forms (a.k.a wizards) are fiddly to build and difficult to test. (And not just in Rails). Why is that, and how can we make them better?

It's not quite hanging our of drinks and food in a local pub, but a few of us usally hang out in the Zoom chat after the meeting to chat. It only really works with a handful of people though, so we're still on the lookout for something else tha would work for more attendees. If you have any ideas on that, do get in touch at and we can explore it together.


Prior to attending you should familiarise yourself with our README paying close attention to the code of conduct which applies to all attendees, even though there's no pub or venue. Basically they are good rules to generally live your life by.

Secure your place

Even in a virtual world there are limited places for attending the meeting so you need to register via eventbrite. The link to the zoom meeting will only be sent to registered attendees on the day of the meeting, around about 6pm. Keep an eye out for the email and check your spam just in case.

Do prepare yourself in advance by downloading the zoom client.
