Meet up

LRUG April

Monday, 20th April at Old Sessions House, London

This meetup is run by LRUG: London Ruby User Group. Starts at 6:30 PM.

At this LRUG meeting, Martin Kleppman will talk about a Ruby Invoicing Framework Gem, Paul Jensen will talk about using Geokit in Social Apps and last but not least, Jon Gilbraith will show how to take a modular approach to views and creating builder classes to abstract structural html and view logic into Ruby blocks. As we already have more than 100 people signed up, Skills Matter is renting the Old Sessions House to host this session!

Ruby Invoicing Framework Gem

Martin Kleppmann recently released his Ruby invoicing gem version 0.2. For a general commercial invoicing application one might start with . . .

Martin Kleppmann

Entrepreneur and web technologist - Martin Klepmann is the author of the invoicing gem.

Using Geokit in Social Apps

Geokit is a RubyGem and Rails plugin with a wrapper interface to various geocoding providers and supports geocoding addresses, latitude/longitude coordinates and IP addresses. Amongst several other things, Geokit also calculates distances between two points and the mid-point between them

Paul Jensen

Paul is a developer at Axisto Media. He previously worked at New Bamboo and AOL, and is a core contributor to the SocketStream web framework.

A Modular Approach to Views

Jon Gilbraith is not keen on HTML as he finds it takes the joy out of programming and it also seems unsightly. Alternatives like Haml are a nice improvement, but with Haml things still get untidy once the logic is laid out

Jon Gilbraith

Jon Gilbraith has been working on taking a modular approach to views and creating builder classes to abstract structural html and view logic into Ruby blocks.
