Heading to San Francisco, CA. Meet Up?

Posted by Thu, 17 Nov 2005 02:47:00 GMT

Jeremy and I are flying down to San Francisco (well Petaluma) tomorrow night for some on-site work with one of our Rails consulting clients. We will be driving back to San Francisco on Friday night and will probably have a few extra hours to kill on Saturday before we fly back to Portland at around 6pm. So, pretty much all day Saturday is open.

Anyone interested in meeting up with us on Saturday and talking about Ruby, Rails, or whatever? This will be Jeremy’s first visit to SF. :-)

If you have some pointers as to where two geeks that love free wifi + (coffee|beer) should go… please advise. We will be staying downtown… so things within walking distance of that area would be ideal.

Jeremy comes to Portland

Posted by Mon, 14 Nov 2005 07:05:00 GMT

I announced almost two weeks ago that Jeremy Voorhis was taking the position as Lead Architect at PLANET ARGON.

He’s been here for a week and a day now… and it feels like we’ve worked together for quite a long time already. When he hasn’t been coding in Emacs and working with the awesome Ruby on Rails framework, we’ve been wandering the city…. and yes, he’s been Powells! He claims to like Portland. :-)

I took a picture of him yesterday when he was discussing a clients project that we’re currently refactoring. The project comes to us with an existing schema, codebase, and opinions.

We’ve been working on several of these types of projects together in the past few months… which prompted us to deciding to start our project, Refactoring Rails.

It’s been great working with him in person. He, like some of the other developers that we call upon for some projects, had been assisting us through IRC, IM, and BaseCamp... and being able to be in the same office together… has been very beneficial.

In any event… I thought it would be fun to post a picture of Jeremy. :-)

Stay tuned…

P.S. You can see a drawing that Allison created of Jeremy on the PLANET ARGON about page.

There is a rumor that his mother photoshoped the drawing and put his head on the body of SuperMan. I beg you all to convince him to post ig on his blog. ;-) to get some sleep.

PLANET ARGON Core Team Grows +1

Posted by Tue, 01 Nov 2005 21:30:00 GMT

A week ago today, we launched the new PLANET ARGON web site. That went great! Then, late last week, Jeremy Voorhis and I announced that we were working on a top-secret project, Refactoring Rails. Thought that was it? Guess again.


We are exicted to announce that this Saturday, Jeremy Voorhis will be catching a flight from Pittsburg to Portland to come and join the PLANET ARGON Core Team. We’ve been working with this highly talented individual on several recent development projects and it only seemed natural that he play a more active role in PLANET ARGON. So we asked him to pick up, move to Portland and join the team here. Well, Jeremy took us up on the offer and is preparing for the big move as I type this.

Portland Ruby Brigade, expect to see a new face at the December meeting!

And if you think this is the last of our accouncements… well, stay tuned…

UPDATE: Yes, this means that Jeremy will join us out West to work with Ruby on Rails all-the-time!
