These are the types of events we love to have at 1410Q. Deep knowledge transfer is great for the entire tech community, and we’ll do everything we can to encourage it.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 10, 2010
Assistant organizer, Joe Grossberg and the leaders of the DC Ruby User’s Group (DCRUG) have organized monthly meetings for anyone interested. Held on the second Thursday of every month, beginning Thursday June 10th, 2010, the get-togethers will consist of presentations and networking opportunities interrelated to the interests of the DC Ruby/Rails community.
The 1410Q innovation hotspot and PointAbout headquarters will be the location for all the Ruby fun. Weighing in on the hotspot, Joe Grossberg said, "As anyone who has organized a tech meetup in DC can tell you, it is a challenge to find a good meeting space that is (1) free, (2) big enough, and (3) walking distance from a Metro station. It was a pleasant surprise, then, to discover 1410Q when our group needed a new location -- it meets all three criteria! And, for members who want to grab a drink and socialize after our meetings, there are some great options nearby." Daniel Odio of PointAbout adds, “These are the types of events we love to have at 1410Q. Deep knowledge transfer is great for the entire tech community, and we’ll do everything we can to encourage it.”
The meetings will be held from 7p.m. to 9p.m. and are free to anyone who registers. For more details about DC Ruby User’s Group (DCRUG), contact Joe Grossberg at joe(at)intridea(dot)com.
