The original announcement is available on the NWRUG site.
This month John Leach of Brightbox will be talking on UNIX: Rediscovering the wheel.
“Those who don’t understand UNIX are condemned to reinvent it, poorly.”
We in the Ruby Community seem to have a habit of re-inventing things. Sometimes this is for good reason, but in some cases we don’t know we’re even doing it! We’re wasting valuable time that could be spent learning Erlang!
UNIX-like operating systems have been around for decades and lots of problems have come and gone in that time. I’m going to talk about some of the tools available that can be used to solve common Ruby and Rails deployment and development problems.
Brightbox will also be sponsoring the event so there will be pizzas available after the meeting in Odder across the road from the meeting.
If you would like to attend this event please sign up here as the BBC need a list of attendees before the event, and I need to arrange the correct amount of food.
This meeting is being held at one of our regular venues, the BBC Manchester main building on Oxford Road in central Manchester (Directions). If you get lost call Will on 07939 547 962.
