The BYU Ruby U. Group will be holding its February meeting
on Wednesday the 8th at 7PM. We’re meeting in room 120 of the
Talmage Math & Computer Building (TMCB) – see
http://map.byu.edu/Map.html for a map of campus if you need it.
Eric H. is making a trip in from Seattle to talk about all
kinds of deep Ruby things. He is a former presenter at RubyConf
(RubyConf 2003 “Working in the Garden: Web Apps with Borges” and
2005 “Reimplementing Ruby”), and has his hands in a number of
exciting Ruby (and Rails) projects: ZenTest, Ruby2C, ruby-growl,
ParseTree, Borges, and the Rails Log Analyzer. He currently
works for the Robot Co-op, helping build 43 Things.
Eric was recently mentioned in Bruce Eckel’s blog
said that Eric has “done some very immersive work with the language.
[He] live[s] and breathe[s] this stuff, which is exactly what I
needed to get some actual insights into Ruby.”
This should be an awesome meeting for those who want to get a better
handle on Ruby, whether you’re a long time hacker, or just looking
into the language.
We’d like to thank Sleep Inn of Provo, who’ve graciously sponsored
this meeting, and are providing accomodations for Eric on the night of
