PHP versus Ruby, round two

Apparently, there was a double booking at the venue tonight where the Portland Ruby Brigade is having the monthly meeting at.

Who are we double booked with? The Portland PHP user’s group. I’m not kidding!

First of all, this kind of puts a minor blow to our plan for tonight. We have Derek and Jeremy (bitsweat) coming by to discuss their work with Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL. We’re not sure yet how the double-booking happened… so that remains to be figured out. However, the other group starts a hour earlier, so we can probably sneak in towards the end and then show them the Ruby way.

The funny part? The discussion with Derek from CD Baby is supposed to surround their move from PHP to Ruby. We might be able to pick up a few more PHP coders tonight. :-)

Wish us luck… it could get dirty tonight.

CDBaby Q&A at next Portland Ruby Brigade meeting

Posted by Fri, 23 Sep 2005 20:06:00 GMT

I just posted on the Portland Ruby Brigade blog that Derek Sivers and Jeremy Kemper (bitsweat) will be coming to the next PDX.rb user group meeting. Derek and Jeremy will field questions from all of us in regards to their complete rewrite of CD Baby from PHP+MySQL to Ruby+Rails+PostgreSQL. (my favorite open-source projects!)

This will take place at FreeGeek in Portland, Oregon on October 4th, 2005!

The Portland Ruby Brigade hackfest roundup

Posted by Tue, 20 Sep 2005 12:07:00 GMT

John Labovitz has a nice and detailed overview of everything that went down at the Portland Ruby Brigade hackfest last weekend. They still quite a bit of work to do, so if you live in the Portland area and want to get involved with the local Ruby group, this would be a good time. :-)

If you are already part of the group and want to help promote it, flaunt PDX.rb with a button on your blog or site. ;-)
