Meet up

London Ruby May Meetup

Monday, 8th May in London

This meetup was organised by LRUG: London Ruby User Group in May 2017


A Brief (and incomplete) introduction to Rust (for Rubyists)

Rust! It's the latest flavour of the month. Find out about this friendly low-level language, why rockstar Rubyists like Yehuda Katz and Steve Klabnik like it, and how to embed it in your Ruby code to get a bigger speed boost than those shiny stars in Mariokart.

An alumni of Makers Academy (August 2015), he has since gone on to work at Mergermarket where he develops microservices in JavaScript (NodeJS), Go, Groovy, Ruby and whatever else he can get his hands on.

Do you even declarative?

A reflection on some recent tweets about declarative programming by Sarah Mei, and a look at the broader idea of the relationship between mathematics and computing.

John Cinnamond

A computer programmer by day, by night I am transformed into…someone who programmes computers. Sometimes I take a break from all of this computer programming to think about how programming really works, or what computation really is. I once met a giant weetabix. My life is pretty rad.
