Ruby is a modern language that's gained traction with its Rails web application development framework. So much so that Ruby on Rails seems to be the de facto way to use this language. Championed by the folks at 37signals, it has a loyal following. They are now meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at the Centergy Building off Tech Square, details on their meetup page:

  • Atlanta Ruby Meetup Group

    Bring a laptop and a helpful disposition to this meetup. The goal of the gathering will be to get your Ruby questions answered. We HIGHLY encourage you to bring a personal Ruby project you've been hacking on.

    We'll start by chatting about what we'd like to get out of the meetup, then possibly pair people with questions to people with answers. All levels welcome!

    What we would like to get done:
    -Solve bugs
    -Figure out what to learn/study/integrate next
    -Explore new & old coding patterns & tools
    -Write/refactor good object-oriented code
    -Help one another grow

    No formal presentations. We will meet at Taproom in Kirkwood. Hope to see you there!

    This is a special event that will be held before the main monthly Atlanta Ruby Meetup. Scott Belware will be giving a special workshop on microservices.


    Solving the “monolith” and breaking it into smaller pieces that can have their own independent work streams in a web of
    independent-but-connected components is the brass ring that so many teams are reaching for. Events, Event Streams, and Event Sourcing are the cornerstone of successful services projects. Taking an event-oriented approach to a microservices or service-oriented architecture makes the difference between ending up with the holy grail of architecture and productivity that you’ve been envisioning, or more of the same old problems, but now with all the additional problems of distributed systems, too. And with an event-sourced approach, you get complete audit logging and even some basic software
    metrics for free!

    About Scott:

    Scott Bellware works with development teams on monolith remediation and autonomous services projects. He’s been on a five-year mission to incorporate all the good things he’s learned in the distributed systems world with all the good things he’s learned in the Ruby world. Scott is a contributor to the Eventide toolkit for event-sourced autonomous services in Ruby, and a co-organizer of the Ruby Microservices Meetup in Austin, TX.
