Nash.rb is the leading user group in Nashville dedicated to helping Rubyists learn and connect with other Rubyists.

Our group exists to bring together everyone interested in and using Ruby on Rails for software development in the Nashville Area. We are open and welcoming of anyone who shows up no matter how little experience.  We give everyone a chance to introduce themselves and share or ask question.  We include an educational presentation by a member at almost all meetings. You are welcome to get in touch with an organizer (Josh Crews, Travis Roberts, Kevin Old, Mike Calhoun) if you have questions or concerns. Looking for the laptop sticker?

About the talk:  We will take a simple rails-like application with several sets of related methods and look at how to extract the common functionality while keeping the same public API. About the speaker:  Chris Coleman is a Nashville transplant, originally from Spokane, WA. He is a Ruby on Rails Developer with Ramsey Solutions. Chris works on SmartDollar, an online financial wellness educational product which companies can purchase as an employee benefit. They teach people how and why to make a monthly budget, get out of debt, and save up for emergencies, purchases, and retirement.
