Dallas Ruby Brigade
The Dallas Ruby Brigade has been around since early 2006. We meet every Tuesday evening to present, hack, teach, or learn about the Ruby programming language.
There is always food. Sometimes there is beer. All are welcome!
We welcome everyone to the Dallas.rb events. Come out and ask questions, help answer questions, or just come to learn.
For jobs and discussion, we have an active mailing list.
Follow us on Twitter for the latest info on our group.

Making Data Dance

Rails and the ActiveRecord gem are really handy tools to get work done, and do it quickly. They aren’t a silver bullet, though. Sometimes the database is the best place to run a complicated query. Especially when you have big transactional or time-series data. Databases are also incredibly powerful, and can do remarkable things at scale. Why not take advantage of that power?
This talk discusses some of the things that you can do with PostgreSQL that will both blow your mind and also help you transform data into knowledge.
