Likely talks/demos/previews:

  • Controlling Ruby apps with the Wii remote

James B. will demonstrate how to use a Wii game console remote to
drive a JRuby application. See how to have your applications respond
to Wiimote movement and button combinations. (Bonus: Hot Ruby
MIDI-on-MIDI action!)

The Phoenix Ruby U. Group meets at 6:30pm on the second Monday of
each month, barring major holidays. Information may be found at

After the meeting (~8:15 pm) we plan on going out to dinner for more fun
and fine conversation.

We’ve been going to the Havana Cafe on Camelback Rd. (provide we get our
asses up there before the kitchen closes).

If you can’t make the Ruby meeting, please consider joining us for
dinner. (We talk about all sorts of things, not just Ruby, so it’s a
good opportunity for geeks of all tribes to hang out.)

Note: If you are thinking of going straight to the restaurant, please
call me (James B.) so I can have the restaurant plan for the
appropriate number of people.

See rubyaz.org for my number.
