ShRUG plays Golf!

Date: 09/05/2011

Location: The GIST Lab

Time: 7pm to 9pm

In parallel with LRUG, we’ll be playing Ruby Golf. Ruby Golf, similar to Perl Golf, is “A game where one attempts to write the shortest [..] program to accomplish some goal.”

We’ll be working in groups to complete a series of ‘holes’ to pass a pre-defined set of examples. At the end, the solutions will be scored, discussed and a winning team will be announced.

This session is great for all levels of Ruby experience, with the beginners getting the chance to work through some (reasonably) simple examples and learn some language tricks and the more experienced developers get to flex their Ruby fu.

Hopefully, we’ll be pitching ourselves against the guys at LRUG and completing the same holes at the same time and sharing the results. Special thanks to Andrew McDonough for helping us out with the examples.

So, bring your laptops and play along! You’ll need Ruby and RSpec installed. We’ll probably head out for a beer afterwards.

If you’re coming, please register for a ticket at our Eventbrite page. Someone will be around from 18.30 if you’re around or need help setting up for the evening.
