Local assistance in Wellington/NZ?

Anyone out there in NZ, perhaps in Wellington?

I’ve been doing procedural perl/PHP for so long that I’d appreciate some
assistance with grokking Ruby :slight_smile: and the Rails framework.

If you’re local to Wellington I’d be more than happy to pin you down
over a liquid refreshment of some sort, as it were … :slight_smile:

I’ve just sort-of promised a friend to build a webapp that’ll suck in
XML Word documents, transform the “interesting” bits into XHTML, and
allow the users to add some extra markup … so I need to understand
REXML, file-system interaction and “select/create” drop-downs …

cough and the “prototype” AJAX library looks cool too :slight_smile:
