It's amazing what a blog can do for your name. I wonder why Photo Matt got bumped from #1 to the 2nd page?

[DeRailed] Denver Rails User Group Meeting

Last night, Francis (Virtuas' Operations Manager) and I went to the local Rails User Group meeting, better known as "DeRailed". This group was started by a good friend of mine, Fernand Galiana, who obviously doesn't know how to blog. ;-) Since Virtuas is a sponsor, and I really like Rails technology, I felt like it'd be a fun meeting to attend. I wasn't disappointed.

The meeting was held 3 blocks from our offices at the downtown Tattered Cover. The first presentation was by Doug Fales, and he talked about his new soon-to-be-launched site called WalkingBoss. With this site, he integrates GPS Data (GPX files) and Flickr photosets to allow you to easily plot your trips on a map. It looks very easy to use, and somewhat inspired me to get a GPS device, and possibly a new (smaller) camera. Doug's blog has more in his most recent post. Unfortunately, I don't see that his blog has permalinks, so this might be hard to find in the coming weeks.

The 2nd talk was Ruby Meta Programming and was presented by Ara Howard. Since I don't know a whole lot about Ruby, this talk was over my head, but somewhat interesting nevertheless. There was about 20-25 people that showed up for this meeting and I found it to be a much younger and more down-to-earth group than the local DJUG. Furthermore, almost everyone went out for beers at the Rock Bottom afterwards, which is a lot different than DJUG (10-15 out of 75-100 usually go). Good meeting, good group of guys. Thanks Fernand!
