Brevard Ruby Users Group

I started a website for what I hope will be a local users group for Ruby, the programming language, and of course, its more popular Rails framework that is changing the face of web development.

To slap it up quickly, I used Wordpress, which as you may know, is a PHP-based blogging engine. Perhaps a bit of irony in doing that, since I’m somewhat confessing that maybe (ahem!) sometimes PHP still beats Rails.

The reality is, of course, that PHP is great for a lot of things and is my first love when it comes to web application development. Plus, I’m practically a Wordpress junkie. But I’m knee-deep in learning Rails and I really would like to use it for a few projects that I’ve been sitting on waiting for… oh, I don’t know… time, funds, the right partner. Did I mention time?

So, why did I punch up the site. Well, out of the folks who have expressed interest thus far, I’m probably the least experienced with Ruby, so I figured it would be the least I could do. Slap up a site and start communication - and let these pros share their knowledge and expertise when we meet.

So, check it out here if you are a Brevard County citizen interested in Ruby or Rails. We have no formal structure yet and have not yet even announced a format for meetings, but we’d love to have some solid Ruby or RoR folks add to the discussion.
