Ruby in the Rainforest


(Pat Eyler) #1

We’re at just over 3 weeks until Ruby in the Rainforest, so I should
probably make an update:

Things are on track for our little ruby gathering.

We’ve got space set aside-
July 20th, 2002 10AM-10PM
in the Raymond Carver room of the Port Angeles Public Library

We’ve got a project-
We’ll be working on rubynet http://rubynet.sourceforge.net/. Sean
Chittenden will be onhand to start us out with an overview and stack of
story cards. We’ll then break up into pairs to start coding.

We’ve got a plan-
We’re looking at something like this:
10:00-11:00 Get together, introductions, overview, and pairing up
11:00- 1:00 first pairing session
1:00- 2:00 lunch (on your own)
2:00- 2:30 progress review and re-pairing
2:30- 4:30 second pairing session
4:30- 5:00 progress review and re-pairing
5:00- 7:00 third pairing session
7:00- ??? tear down our network, have dinner, and socialize

We still need some help:
The biggest thing we need at this point is some solid feedback. I think
there are going to be 12 people (maybe more), but would really like to
have some better numbers. If you’d like to sign up at
http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby?RainforestSignUp it would be a huge help.
I’d also like to know if people have hardware they can bring (laptops,
networking gear, etc.)

Happy Hacking, hopefully at Ruby in the Rainforest :wink:
