Event: The Development Hub

- May 13, 2013 3 MIN READ

What is it?

The reInteractive Development Hub, is a monthly event, where you will get the chance to to spend time with the reInteractive team and others in the community that are looking to develop their Ruby on Rails skills.

When and Where?

When: This will be held, like the InstallFest on a Monday and Tuesday evening every month. The first event will be on Monday, 3rd of June and Tuesday, 4th of June.

Where: Fairfax Media have agreed to host the June 2013 DevelopmentHub in Sydney. We have assembled a set of directions for you here.

What will we be doing?

This depends on how much experience you have had with Ruby on Rails.

For people who are programming their own Rails Application, the DevelopmentHub is a chance for you to work with our Developers and ask questions, get advice and tackle tough problems that you have run into while building your application.

For those of you who are fresh graduates of our InstallFest service or have completed the first and second InstallFest blog posts in your own time, our Developers will help walk you through another series of articles to continue to develop your Ruby on Rails learning experience step by step; including:

  • Introduction to Automated Testing
  • Testing the existing application
  • Installing an Administration System
  • Adding markdown formatting support to posts
  • Further understanding of Rails Migrations
  • Introduction to the assets folder
  • How to make Static Pages and understanding routes
  • Customising your application error pages

Who should attend?

If you are in Sydney and interested in Ruby on Rails, you should buy your ticket now.

Anyone can attend our DevelopmentHub. From complete beginners to experienced users of Ruby on Rails, we welcome anyone who wants to come along to improve your Ruby on Rails skills or get advice on the Rails application of your dreams.

What does it cost?

We want to make this as affordable as possible. So, you get to come and sit with our team from 6:30pm until 9:30pm two nights in a row. We provide pizza and drinks and you get to ask any question you wish.

Like the InstallFest, we’ll have several of our reInteractive professional development team there to help you with ANY problem, one on one. This is not a class room environment, it is a practical, get down and write code environment with professional help. Our developers can charge up to $180 per hour to our clients, so come in and take advantage of this great offer!

If you buy both nights, you also get a $25 discount.

  • Monday Night Ticket = $125
  • Tuesday Night Ticket = $125
  • Monday & Tuesday Ticket = $225

Tickets are transferrable but not refundable and only applicable for the night you have chosen.

Why reInteractive Then?

We are in a unique position in the Australian Ruby on Rails market. We have some awesome Ruby on Rails developers working with us and we want more people involved in the community!

Our founder, Mikel Lindsaar, is among the top Rails contributors world wide and that same commitment to excellence extends to our entire team of experienced developers, working daily on both commercial and open-source projects. With many satisfied clients, both large and small, the reInteractive team is usually kept very busy by word of mouth and repeat business. Perhaps we can help you with your application development needs too!
