Rhode Island Ruby Users Group

If you're new, we're here to help. If you're more experienced, join us to discuss a new technique you've mastered or a problem you're struggling to solve. If you're somewhere in the middle, level up with presentations from the local and not-so-local community.

Please join our group on Meetup.com to stay updated.


April 3, 2018 Meetup

Join us at the MojoTech (@mojotech) Providence office from 6-8 PM on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 (we need the year in here, right?). Joe Alba (@joealba) will talk about some highlights from RubyConf 2017 in New Orleans, and we’ll be joined by John Sawers (@johnksawers) to talk about integrating with a new API – the Emotional API.

“Being a good developer isn’t just about slinging code; we’re part of a community. Interacting with others in a community means feelings are involved. But feelings are messy and uncomfortable, so why can’t you just ignore them? Because emotional skills are critical for working well on a team, and for writing code every day. In this talk you’ll learn how emotions are affecting you by modeling them as an API and looking at the code.”

Also, PVD’s own Ryan Laughlin (@rofreg) will introduce us to his Checkup concept that he’s been using at Splitwise – a way to run tests every X minutes and detect errors against a production environment.

Spots are limited, so RSVP on Meetup.com!
