Hey everyone,

this will be our last ruby meetup of the year and we are going to do something which we haven't done in the past 3 years.

If you do not know what is a coding dojo and what are the rules, fear not! Read about it here or listen carefully on our intro.

For the session, please be prepared: 

* bring your computer with yourself

You are going to work in random pairs, so if you have no laptop, you'll still be able to join someone, but the more computers are present, the biggest chances that everyone can participate in the fun :) 

* please have a ruby 2.3 dev environment on your machine

* have a Github account (you certainly do :) )

December Meetup 09:17 • 7 months ago

It's already been 3 years since we rebooted this meetup. Time flies when you're having fun.

At that time we discussed (or at least hoped we would discuss) Ruby 2.1 and Rails 4.1. This time we can discuss Ruby 2.4, proposed changes for Ruby 3, and Rails 5. Numbers don't change that much, but times do.

Come to the final meetup of the year where we will celebrate past year and look forward to the bright future. 

No presentations, no sponsors, but lots of fun!

We will meet somewhere on Prešeren Square and then move to a bar/pub. If lost call +386 41 912 061.
