New Hamshire Rubyists Hatch Their Next Scheme…

(That title is a pun on computer languages, btw… )

I was really pleased with the way the first meeting of the NH Seacoast Ruby/Rails User Group turned out. A total of eight of us were there, and we had a good mix of folks who had various levels of experience with Ruby. There seems to be plenty of interest from people who have gone through a tutorial or two but want to bring their Ruby/Rails knowledge to the next level. One gentleman came up all the way from Boston – a self-described “technical user group addict.” What a great hobby!

During the meeting I went over a list of my favorite Ruby and Rails development and community resources, including web sites, books, forums, and blogs. This sparked suggestions and additions from others in the room, creating an enjoyable, interactive discussion.

Next I’ll be working with the Greater NH Linux User Group, which has graciously offered to host a wiki and mailing lists for the group. When that is set up I’ll be sure to announce it on this blog and to everyone who has contacted me in the past with interest in this group. Nick is also helping us find a new meeting location in Portsmouth (much appreciated, Nick!).
