So the Ruby on Rails gathering I wanted to throw together for SXSW quickly became an event that looks like will see a hundred plus people. Damon Clinkscales (cofounder of the Austin Rails User Group) and Rob Jones (an interaction designer at frog) have helped immensely by narrowing down a venue and time.
We’ll be meeting on Saturday, March 11th at 6:00PM at Buffalo Billiards. The venue looks pretty cool with billiard tables and shuffle board and food. As if meeting with a ton of Rails enthusiasts from around the Austin area (and from around the world) weren’t enough, the first 100 drinks are on the house. See myself, Damon, or Rob on the night of the event for drink tickets. Expect us to ask what you’re up to with Rails and heed our challenge to meet at least five new people at the event.
The event can be found on Upcoming. I’m really looking forward to it!
Note that this won’t be a typical user group meeting. Just a social event where we can meet the people who work and play within our community.
