ChicagoRuby Expands to North Shore30 Oct 2014
Long-time observers of ChicagoRuby know that the group is always striving to achieve more. Latest move: ChicagoRuby is now hosting a monthly meetup on Chicago’s North Shore. The first meeting of ChicagoRuby: North Shore will be held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 at 10:30am. Visit Meetup.com for details and to RSVP.
Why the North Shore?
Why expand to Chicago’s North Shore? One reason: Several ChicagoRuby members live there, and travelling to meetings downtown and in Elmhurst can be quite a haul.
The bigger reason: Two members have stepped up to manage the north shore operation. Doug Harman and Stu Gerstein have been active in Elmhurst for a long time. They were chosen as organizers because they are vocal and they have already done the preliminary leg work.
That’s how we roll in ChicagoRuby. Many years ago, Ginny Hendry demonstrated that if you push for a new activity in ChicagoRuby (like hack nights) you might end up running it!
2014 has proven to be an exciting year for ChicagoRuby. So far, the group has…
- Collaborated with the University of the West Indies at Cave Hill, Barbados to form LinuxBarbados.
- Built alliances with top-notch developers in multiple countries to create RubyCaribe.
- Expanded the monthly Chicago-area activities to four per month.
- Grown the organizer team to ten (10) members.
Looking forward to more!
