Dinner with Dave Thomas and a bunch of other Ruby users was good fun. The second meeting will be held next Sunday at Pizza Chicago in Palo Alto, where we'll hopefully decide on a name for our motley crew.
Dave also came in to give a Ruby talk at Google today. I'm not sure how many people will now go away and play with the language, but I'd like to believe that one or two will be intrigued enough to try it out.
It was a very enjoyable talk and I'm very grateful to Dave for taking the time to come in and present it.
Ruby/Google 0.3.0 is now out. This version returns slightly different data structures to previous versions, so be warned. It's not labelled alpha code for nothing.
