ShRUG 30: Sheffield Ruby User Group
Monday, May 14, 2012 from 6:45 PM to 8:45 PM (BST)
Sheffield, United Kingdom
This month's session is ...
Following on from last year’s ShRUG event, May’s ShRUG is another 9 holes of Ruby Golf. Ruby Golf, similar to Perl Golf, is “A game where one attempts to write the shortest [..] program to accomplish some goal.” We’ll be working in groups to complete a series of ‘holes’ to pass a pre-defined set of examples. At the end, the solutions will be scored, discussed and a winning team will be announced.
This session is great for all levels of Ruby experience, with the beginners getting the chance to work through some (reasonably) simple examples and learn some language tricks and the more experienced developers get to flex their Ruby fu.
So, bring your laptops and play along! You’ll need Ruby and RSpec installed.
Doors open at 6:45pm for a 7pm start, and we'll head to the pub later. We’ll probably head out for afterwards.
Ruby is a dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on making programming fun. Sheffield Ruby User Group (ShRUG) meets up every month to explore the capabilities of this elegant technology and to share know-how and skills.
New members (ShRUGgers) are always welcome.
You can join the Sheffield Ruby User Group online here. Catch updates on Twitter by following @shrugbot. If you want to say hello before then you can catch us on Twitter or on the Google Group. Or, drop us an email if you’ll need help finding us on Monday. Hope to see you there!
