AELOGICA’s recent move to a new office in Picadilly Star tower, located in Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila, provided us with a large shared boardroom in which to host the May, 2011 Phillipine Ruby User Group (PhRUG) meeting. At least twenty-five attendees enjoyed pizza from nearby Guardo’s while taking in presentations and preparing for the upcoming Ruby Rumble event.
Attendees included representatives from other leading local Ruby employers as well as independent developers and several new Ruby and Rails novices.
Presentations included Bryan Bibat’s review of the RedDotRubyConference which we attended last month in Singapore, as well as a repeat/discussion of my own Pechu Kucha presentation from #reddot: “Estimating Ruby Projects”
Radamanthus Batnag shared the results of a survey of PhRUG members regarding their preferred tools and technologies within the Ruby space. Rad also discussed the concept and rules for Ruby Rumble – an upcoming event where teams compete to produce an entire working application in a single day.
The Rumble will take place next Saturday, May 28 in Ubertor’s office 6 floors down from us in the same building.
Thanks to everyone who helped out including Ramon who helped us pick up the pizza, Bryan and Buddy for having needed cables and adapters handy, Piotr for helping me disassemble and clean our projector and to everyone for participating!
