The Dallas Ruby Brigade has been around since early 2006. We work to strengthen the programming community through presentations, hacking, teaching, and learning about the Ruby programming language. There is always food. Sometimes there is beer. All are welcome!


We meet on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. The first is our primary meeting which often includes a speaker. Talks usually last between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Afterwords there's time to network and discuss. The third is a hacknight where we work on personal projects, ask for help, and chat about whatever comes to mind.
