Join the London Ruby User Group this September for three exciting talks by Mazz Mosley, Jairo Diaz and Daniel Sun.
Mazz will talk about some of the essential skills that good technical leaders exhibit and the information you need to know about to help you become good at leading and not turn into a terrible person.
Do you find yourself in a position of leadership and don't know what to do now? Do you think you're a great tech lead? Do you wonder if you're cut out to lead one day?
Great, then come and listen to my talk, you may find it more relevant to your interests than you realise.
Bebox helps automating the provisioning of environments in which Ruby on Rails applications run, easing the reproduction of new server setups every time.
Bebox's main concern is the structure. It is generally a good idea to have conventions about how different source code files are placed and named and be able to use this to reduce the details required to understand a project while also providing automation in key places.
These conventions may include things like: how to write puppet modules, how to integrate them into the projects, a directory structure for the projects, how to have a replicated “development/test” environment into virtual machines, etc.

Having recently completed the training phase of WeGotCoders I will present some code from my final project of the 12 week training course / some code recently pulled into Diaspora*.
With more and more of us choosing this route, the aim is to show those interested in the 'Immersion' model (either attending a course, or hiring someone who has joined a course) what someone with no prior coding experience can achieve within 12 weeks.
