Upcoming: MoR4, Tuesday November 6th

With three successful events under our belt, we’re now getting ready for our fourth!

StandoutJobs‘ offices were such a pleasant venue that I think we’ll keep coming back – I don’t expect there will be much love lost for our old, anti-food-consumption, puppy-hating, pain-inducing McGill digs ;)

As usual, we have an amazing line-up of speakers (uhh..) lined-up:

  • Mathieu Martin will present JRuby, a 100% Java implementation of Ruby;
  • Alain Pilon will dish the goods on acts_as_state_machine;
  • Sylvain Carle, and his team from incandescently-hot startup Praized, will talk about Comatose and its integration inside an existing RoR app.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP here while there’s still room. If you come, please kindly be on time (yes, I’m looking at you Heri).

Like last month, we’ll have free pop on hand and order pizza for the hungry, so bring $5 if you would like to partake in Domino goodness. Also, bring a few extra bucks because we’ll be passing around a collection plate to help defray the costs of the chairs/equipment that Fred kindly picked up for the group.

Look forward to seeing y’all in a couple weeks.

Free Rails book!

As pointed out on Mathieu Martin‘s blog, you can download for FREE the Build Your Own Ruby on Rails Web Applications book for a limited time. Hurry!

MoR 3: another smashing success!

Yesterday was Montreal on Rails #3 and god, it was good!

Our presenters, Gary Haran, François Beausoleil and James Golick all gave very insightful and interesting presentations. If you want more information about these, I have posted more information on the past presentations page.

Alain Pilon took great pictures of the event has already posted them on Flickr. James Golick and François Beausoleil both videotaped the presentations so we can (hopefully) expect multi-angle videos shortly. See the Pics & Vids page.

Many people went out for a beer(s) afterward (to wash down that Domino’s Pizza!) and, as always, I had interesting conversations with Mathieu Martin and Marc-André Cournoyer.

Apparently, a few of you don’t know we have a Google Group. Well, we do! Feel free to subscribe to it and post your burning questions.

Special thanks to Standout Jobs for hosting the event. The new venue is fantastic! A big thank you to O’Reilly for sponsoring the event with free books!

We at Karabunga never thought MoR would be such a success, so most and foremost, thanks to YOU!

Tomorrow: MoR at SoJ

Tomorrow is the 3rd edition of MontrealonRails, and it will be held at our new location: StandoutJobs‘s offices on St-Laurent. If you have not yet RSVP’ed, please do so now — there’s a handful of spots remaining (ceiling is at 40).

We have 3 ninja-like RoR-heads lined-up to present, so the evening promises to be a good one! Oh, and keep in mind that we plan to order pizza, so bring a few bux if you want to partake.

À demain!
