London Ruby User Group - 9th June 2008

Hey hey,

It’s that time of month again and the London Ruby U. Group (LRUG [El
Rug])
will be meeting on Monday the 9th of June 2008. Come along and join the
fun.

Date: Monday, 9th June, 2008
Time: 6:30 for the talks, 8:00pm (ish) for the pub
Location: The Old Sessions House[1] for the talks, The Crown Tavern[2]
for
the pub
Closest tube: Farringdon

Registration:

Be nice to our hosts Skills Matter and register your attendance at their
website[3] or we won’t get the big overflow room and we’ll have to turn
people away because of fire regulations. Then you’d miss out and that
would
be upsetting.

Agenda:

Book raffle
We have some books donated by Apress and Addison-Wesley which we’ll be
giving away using my awful Shoes “names from a hat” app. Check the
mailing
list[4] for the titles.

Nick Ludlam: “Ruby as multimedia glue”
A talk about using ruby to stitch MythTV into a Cocoa app, with some on
the
fly transcoding using Mongrel, RubyCocoa and other custom ruby code.

Matt W.: “Genomes on Rails”
How the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is using Rails to help with
their
work in sequencing the human genome.

More details about the meeting are available on the LRUG website[5].

Cheers,

Muz
