It took us some time to organize, but we finally had our first Ruby Ireland meet-up last night. The event took place in Mulligan’s on Poolbeg Street, a pub notorious for serving one of the best pint of Guinness in Dublin… an aspect we all appreciated!

Seven Rubyists turned up for this introductory meet-up. One half were professional users, the other half… envious! Unsurprisingly, Rails was the main topic of conversation, but we also touched on Ruby meta-programming, a personal favorite.
I really enjoyed this meet-up. I don’t know whether it was the night out — a rare occasion when you’re the proud father of two young monsters — or whether it was the friendly and passionate people who turned up, but one thing is sure: I’m looking forward to the next Ruby Ireland meet-up!
