Yehuda is a truly great open source innovator. It’s amazing and inspiring to think of the number of people who’ve directly benefitted using the tools/libraries he’s created or contributed to. So I’m really happy that he’ll be joining us in Dublin next month, and speaking at our next big event at Intercom on 9th September at 6pm.
As well as Yehuda, the impressive Jules Coleman will tell her story of building hassle.com, including teaching herself Ruby/Rails in the evenings while working for PWC. And there will be a range of talks from our own speakers, lifting the lid on how we work across some diverse and interesting topics.
I feel so tremendously lucky to be part of the thriving community that is emerging in Ireland, I think back to the first time I got involved in Ruby Ireland , with fondness, but also acknowledge how far we’ve come, from scrambling to get 5 people to have pints and talk about Ruby, to having hundreds of people turn up to tell stories and have chats about the craft we are all so passionate about.
Hope to see you there!

Ever felt the stereotypes and prejudices that keep more women from entering IT a little overwhelming? Want to contribute to change this trend?
You can volunteer to co-organise and/or coach during a 2-day workshop that will allow women to easily build a web application, demystifying the “coding” activity.
If you are interested in coaching, we’d love to hear from you. And if you would like to help organising, you can pick up a task from the long list here.
In both cases, just let us know your intentions at railsgirlsgalway_at_gmail.com.
Thanks a million!

It’s the last meetup of the year and thanks to Storyful and PlayON.co it is going to be a cracker! We’ve got talks on the challenges of scaling architecture, as well as how to use RabbitMQ with Rails to build a social feed switchboard. And not only are they putting up the speakers but they’re also putting their money where their mouth is by sponsoring, not one, but two end of year parties! It all happens on the 11th of December at Engine Yard (thanks!) and here’s the schedule…
|6:00-6:45pm||Pre-meetup party at Slattery's bar, sponsored by PlayON.co (directions)|
|7:00pm||Doors open at Engine Yard|
|7:20pm||Talk 1: Challenges of Architecture and Scaling at PlayON.co by Killian Jones|
|7:50pm||Talk 2: Building a social feed switchboard using RabbitMQ & Rails at Storyful by Tony Byrne|
|8:45pm-late||After party at Ely HQ, sponsored by Storyful (directions)|
As usual, there will be RubyMine licences up for grabs. So close out 2014 in style. You know all you want for Christmas is make it down to our end of year bash and meet your fellow Rubyists! And help us out by hitting the RSVP button…
