[ANN] London Ruby User Group - 11th June 2007

Hi all,

The next meeting of the London Ruby U. Group is advancing menacingly
towards us:

Date: June 11th
Time: 6:30pm onwards
Location: the Skills Matter offices at 1 Sekeford Street, EC1R 0BEL[1]
Closest tube: Farringdon

LEARN!
Dan W. will be talking to us about OpenID[2] and how to do it in your
ruby
apps. If this sounds familiar it’s the talk he was going to give last
month
but it had to be postponed after the slides had a terrible skydiving
accident and had to be re-built with bionic transitions than can swap
slides
faster than a speeding car and bullet points capable of swooping in from
over a mile away!

PRACTICE!
Tom A. is going to host a session running some of Dave T.'s
Code
Kata’s[3]. This will involve breaking the meeting up into crack
programmer
units tasked with solving a problem they didn’t think up! Each group
will
then attempt to escape from these programming exercise stockades and
escape
to the Los A. underground where they will survive as programmers of
fortune!

RELAX!
After this brutal ruby-based onslaught the survivors will form up into a
rag
tag group and go off in search of the 13th colony, known locally as The
Crown Tavern[4], where we will be free of cylon attack and able to relax
with a frosty glass of ambrosia and chat about the adventures we had on
the
way.

REGISTER!
If you are coming, it’s important that you register with Skills Matter
via
their LRUG page[5]. Registration numbers will be used by Skills Matter
to
work out seating and make sure we get the most appropriate room in The
Village. Non-registrants may not get in and it’s possible they will be
chased by a Rover, so you probably want to make sure you do register.

MORE DETAILS!
More (non-tv-show-based) information is to be had on the LRUG
website[6],
should you want it.

SALUTATIONS!
Hope to see you there.

Cheers,

Murray
