Ruby on Birmingham

In case you’re interested, here is a link to the RubyHam users group in Birmingham, Alabama. They have monthly meetings, usually meeting on the first non-holiday Monday of the month. The meetings are around lunch time, rather than at night. I’ve never been to one the meetings, and I’ve never used Ruby, but I did see a presentation about it once and it seemed cool enough to make me want to learn more about it. I plan to go to the next meeting on September 14, 2009 just to see what it’s all about. Will I see you there?

Ruby is a (non-Microsoft) language that seems to have reasonable popularity among the kids. Microsoft is working on a version for .NET called IronRuby: http://www.ironruby.net Since I am indeed a Microsoft fanboy, that will probably win my first dance.

Get involved. Enjoy. The choices are endless.
