After May’s Montreal.rb, I started thinking about how much I enjoy drinks after the presentations. That’s usually my favourite part of the whole thing.
So, next week, we’re going to have the first dedicated Montreal.rb pub night at McKibbins pub on Bishop (not the West Island location). I’m planning to show up around 6:30pm. They have great veggie burgers. So, I’ll probably eat dinner there.
Tonight’s Montreal.rb is sure to be a good one.
Finally, Sean Braithwaite, also from Smart Hippo (maybe they’re carpooling or something?), is going to be talking about DataMapper. I’m really excited about this one, because DataMapper is awesome. Here’s Sean’s description of the talk:
Datamapper is an ruby (MRI, YARV, JRuby) Object Relational Mapper
(ORM) comparable to Sequel or ActiveRecord. Unlike it’s comparables,
datamapper is becoming increasingly data store agnostic. Not only can
it be used to avoid writing sql, but is aiming to define a general
language for object storage. This talk aims to present the recent
developments in dm-core/next branch and what these changes have to
offer developers working with multiple non relational data stores.
