Melbourne, Australia ruby/rails meetup: 29th August

Hi folks,

We're starting formalised ruby meetups in Melbourne, Australia. If
you're in town, why not drop in and chat about all things ruby.

Time: 6pm

Location:

Thoughtworks
Level 11, 155 Queen Street
Melbourne
(map and more details at:
http://www.thoughtworks.com/melbourneInfo.html)

Agenda:

Doors open 6pm.
Thoughtworks is providing some food (pizza or something).

6.30
Down to business...

Introductions:
Everyone gets a chance to introduce themselves and plug their
favourite ruby company/project/whatever.

Analog Blog:
Come prepared to bring your latest news headlines for the ruby/rails
world. We use our high tech news aggregator (a whiteboard and pen) to
produce a feed of all the exciting things that have been happening in
the ruby and rails world in the last month. Our high tech delivery
method (someone writing everything down) will wing this info back to
this list for later digestion (and ideas for next months talks).

Short Talk 1:
Craig Ambrose. Rails engines: "Why they don't suck as much as DHH
might think". How to use them to remove duplication between
applications and to integrate third party software for greater
useability.

Short Talk 2:
This slot is open. Please volunteer. No experience necessary.

Wrap Up
Anyone not falling asleep or bored to tears at this point may wish to
join me for a couple of beers.

That's it. Hope to see you all there, and a big thank you to
Thoughtworks for providing the venue.

regards,

Craig
