RMR Charity Workshop: Ruby Meta Programming
Wednesday, September 19, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM (MDT)
Ruby Meta Programming
Although mastering metaprogramming doesn't mean mastering Ruby, an understanding of it, and of the object model underlying Ruby that enables it, is a necessary step on that path. Practically speaking, a solid understanding of these concepts is relevant to every Ruby and Rails programmer daily. We'll look at Ruby's object model, its relevant APIs, and common patterns.
Ruby 1.9 running on your computer, preferrably 1.9.2 or higher.
These workshops, while free to secure a ticket, are all about raising money for local charities. You will need to make a donation to cover the sessions you wish to attend. You can do this at the event or ahead of time. If you are making a donation beforehand you will need to bring your printed receipt of your donation. Most sessions require a $30 or more donation. There are special reserve tickets for supporters that donate $100 or more for a session. We are offering a few seats at this level as a way to encourage those to give more than the minimum and be recognized for it. For instance, if you wished to attend Play with Ruby and The Hashrocket Way, you could make a single $60 donation to cover both sessions as the minimum.
Our overall goal is to top $5000 total. Please be generous and help our meet our goal! Here is the list of our local charities:
