Ruby 2.6 Feature Convo: Lightning strikes more than thrice!


Leandog Inc, 1151 N Marginal Road, Cleveland, OH

21 attended Thu, Mar 7, 2019, 6:00PM - 9:00PM

Ruby 2.6 has been out since the end of December while most of us were enjoying the holiday season and lack of snow. Let's get together and talk about all the fun things that have been added to the language since v2.5!

https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2018/12/25/ruby-2-6-0-released/

The meetup will be ran as a series of lightning talks, where each volunteer can discuss different features with a small, (up to) 5 minute presentation about it. If you'd like to claim multiple features, feel free! (code examples welcomed!)

To claim an item (or more!) to discuss feel free to reach out to one of the organizers or #clerb in the Cleveland Tech Slack.

Schedule:
• 6:00 - Arrive, Networking, Food Consumption
• 6:30 - Announcements
• 7:00 - 8:30 - Lightning Talks and Discussions

---------

Here are a few resources to learn about a few of the features. Feel free to use them to help kick-start your own lightning talk!
