From my posts on the Meetup event:

Hello Rubyists,

It’s almost the first Thursday of the month again. We’re always interested in having members present Ruby-related topics to the group, so if you’ve been playing with anything cool, please consider presenting! We’re pretty informal, so anything you present doesn’t have to be a “polished” keynote-style presentation; it can be as simple as plugging in your laptop and showing some code you’ve been working on.

If anyone would like to present something, please leave a comment [on the Meetup event].

Best wishes,


And also, my customary monthly Ruby news roundup:

Some Ruby news from the last month:

  • Ruby 2.1.4 released, along with patchlevel-releases for 2.0.0 and 1.9.3 containing security fixes
  • OSX 10.10 has shipped, with Ruby 2.0.0 as the default (Ruby 1.8.7 was completely removed)
