Speakers: Jeff Barczewski and Mike Sullivan

Free
Meeting: This is a free meeting for anyone interested
in learning how to build Ruby on Rails web applications. We welcome
developers, designers, students,
professionals, anyone wanting to learn more about the latest web
development techniques and frameworks.

Details: From the
beginning… we will be creating a new web application from scratch
using test first BDD/TDD Rails development. We will start with an idea,
create a spec and some tests, HTML prototype, and then work to make it
into a live web application. Jeff Barczewski and Mike Sullivan will be
your co-presenters for the evening.

We will build our application using:

  • RSpec / BDD
  • TDD
  • Migrations
  • Rails
    MVC
  • MasterView

As part of
this ongoing series each month, we will teach you how to build web applications
one step at a time. We’ll illustrate this using
an agile approach iteratively building our application as we
go. We will start out simple and add features over time much like you
would in the real world. Each month we will focus on a new area of the
application and framework so you’ll always be learning.
