UGtastic Interview

by Ben

I did an interview with UGtastic at WindyCityRails. They just tweeted the video so I thought I’d embed it here. From their description:

Midwestern and East Coast Ruby Community

Benjamin Oakes helped start the Iowa City Ruby user-group before moving out to Connecticut and helping start up the New Haven Ruby. We discuss a little bit of the differences between running a group in the Mid-west versus the East Coast.
