Rails Meetup is Picking Up
I have been attending the Silicon Valley Ruby on Rails Meetup since the first meeting a year ago this next May (or so.) I am surprised at the number of people that show up and their purpose in coming. it started out with just a few computer geeks who love Ruby and Rails and now I think half of the attendees tonight were VCs, companies looking for Rails engineers, or people looking for partners for their next big idea for a web app.
I think its great but I have to admit it must be a sign of the times.
Ruby on Rails is here to stay and even companies like Spock (spock.com) are building large apps with it with 9M$ in VC.
now all I have to do is figure out a way to use Rails more since I don’t get the pleasure currently at my day job. 🙂
