November 16th recap

Thanks again to all for coming. I loved Jonathan’s RVM presentation. I think my presentation went well, but I believe I was a bit too fast. Please feel free to comment about the evening.

Chris Desnoyers from Synapsesix visited us and told us they were looking for Rails developers:

Looking for RoR talent in the Montreal area (but remote could work) to join our team. We specialize in Elections Management, Project/Follow-up Management and Logistics Management. We live on the cutting edge and need people who like being there as well.

You may contact Chris at chris.desnoyers@synapsesix.com.

Next Montreal.rb: November 16th – RVM & Jaccard

Good times! November rolls around and Jonathan Palardy offered to talk about RVM, the Ruby Version Manager. He felt it was an oversight that we never discussed it. At the same time, I will show you how to use the Jaccard Coefficient Index in your day-to-day coding. Don’t expect math, but do expect fun times!

  • 6:15 PM: Doors open
  • 6:45 PM: Jaccard Presentation
  • 7:30 PM: RVM Presentation
  • 8:15 PM: Late dinner and drinks

The event will be held on November 16th, at the CRIM, located at 405 Ogilvy St. Please RSVP at Yahoo’s Upcoming.

Looking forward to meeting you there!
