Meetup September 20th

This month was a funny month to organize the meetup. I were able to have confirmations for the talks really early but then we couldn’t have the Notman House room. I’ve met people from Jobbook today and they will share their working place with us.

 

For September, I wanted to organize an architecture month. How should you organize you Ruby code to be able to scale it and use in a long term perspective in an enterprise.

 

The first talk will be by Colin Surprenant. He is currently the lead engineer at Needium. He will talk about distributed application messaging in Ruby using ZeroMQ and Redis. You can easily scale your ruby application using that architecture.

 

 

The second presentation will be by Francois Beausoleil. He was missing to talk in front of us ;-) . He is currently CTO at Seevibes. He will talk about why you should use JRuby in your next ruby project, why it is useful in a production environment.

 

This month, the meetup will occur at Jobbook1980 Sherbrooke West (near Guy-Concordia subway station). We will have a basketball or golf challenge before the meetup for free beer.

 

You still have 1 week to register to Confoo as a speaker. Don’t miss your chance.

Job offers

I’ve received a new job offer and a conference last week. I didn’t had time to post them so I do it today.

 

The job offer is from Antoine de Brabant from Jobbook. He should be at the next meetup on September 20th if you want to meet him in person.

Jobbook is looking for expert Ruby on Rails programmer(s) to lead the development project. Working with a team of motivated individuals in our 7000 sq. ft. downtown offices (includes basketball, workout center, showers, mini-golf…), Jobbook is an ideal environment for the Ruby entrepreneur.

We are launching next month across the top 40 Universities in North America, lead by our team of 50 student partners (including the Student Association presidents of McGill, Johns Hopkins, UCLA and UCBerley among others). This is a great time to join the team and help build the career site we’ve all been waiting for.
Send your candidatures to Antoine (antoine@jobbook.com)

- Share options and salary to be determined upon level of expertise / dedication to the project.

- Also accepting candidatures for junior positions.

The conference is a reminder of what was posted at the start of May by Francois. I should have three 10% coupon. If you are interested, send my an email. EDIT : The coupon for EvenBrite is MTLRUBYBOB. Here is Francois’ post.

Louis-Philippe Carignan from Elapse Technologies informed me that Robert C. Martin, Uncle Bob himself, is coming to Montreal to give his Clean Coders class. Uncle Bob will be in Montreal on October 24th and Quebec on the 27th. The class is 2 days each time. This is an excellent opportunity to get the best information!

Register on EventBrite.

 

For next meet up, I will post information about it tonight. I have some problem to find a local for us since Notman House has given our time frame to an other group. If you know a good place (free) around a subway station (preferably downtown), send me an email.

 

EDIT : Add EvenBrite coupon : MTLRUBYBOB.
