How to make Guacamole & A gentle introduction to music theory (in ruby)

Monday, 11th August at Skills Matter, London

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

Want more information on how to make Guacamole and an introduction to Music Theory? Then join the London Ruby User Group this month for two informative talks by Dirk Breuer and Alex Speller.

How to make Guacamole

ArangoDB is a multi-purpose NoSQL database. There are a lot of features in it but without a proper high level library for common web frameworks no one will use a database these days. No matter how fancy it is.

Guacamole is an ODM for ArangoDB to be used in Rack-based framework and especially Rails. I will talk about the design choices, caveats and my the general experience working on that kind of library. The talk will not go too deep into technical details and should be interesting to novice and experts alike.

Dirk Breuer

I'm a freelancer focussing on web application architecture and development. Most of the time I code Ruby. I also like to automate stuff, cut down monolithic apps in small services and improve team communication.

A gentle introduction to music theory (in ruby)

Music theory can seem arcane and unapproachable. But underneath the weird names and symbols, the basics are actually pretty simple.

The real issue is that the documentation is bad and the API is worse! In this talk I will show how to start with nothing but a ruby interpreter, and generate sine waves, notes, scales, modes, chords, arpeggios and songs, in a way that will be understandable to those who have never touched an instrument before and will (hopefully) offer an interesting new perspective even to those who are already well versed in music theory.
