I was pleasantly surprised by the turnout (about twenty people) to the Toronto Rails Pub Nite. I had interesting discussions with people who noted that both the Ruby and the Rails communities are built on friendly shoulders: you don’t understand something, you ask a question and get a friendly answer. Someone else doesn’t understand something and asks a question, and you yourself are inclined to give a friendly answer now.
I’m looking forward to the next Pub Nite as a supplement to the regular Toronto Ruby User’s Group meetings on the first Sunday of every month. I’m not a Railser, but it’s good to see the community getting together this way.
