Montreal.rb Branding: New Logo, New Direction

Before Gary’s talk yesterday, Sean Braithwaite showed us a great new logo:

With this logo, and Gary’s talk, we suddenly find ourselves ready to generate lots of new content. To this end, I propose we have a Hacknight on March 4th, at 6:30 PM where we will dissect and extend one gem we, as a group, will choose. We have lots of great candidates.

The format I want to explore is as a group we concentrate on a single project. We have received permission to use Bloom’s offices again, so we have access to the big screen for coding. Essentially, I’m proposing a big pairing session, with 10-12 heads instead of 2. If you’re interested, please RSVP.

At yesterday’s Montreal.rb meetup, Gary Haran mentioned Obie Fernandez RubyFringe talk: Do the Hustle.

Martin Aumont‘s presentation on Holygrail was also of great value. Kudos to our presenters!

Gary Haran from Talker Group Chat fame is going to have a flash talk on a super secret subject that will be revealed at this month’s meeting.

With Martin, we’re now at 2 speakers. There’s still time to announce your talk to me.

See you on February 16th!
