We should really be getting out in the developer community in the
area. We should be holding Ruby/Rails workshops to recruit more
people. I originally came from the .NET world, so I know the joy of
coming at Ruby from that angle.
I would hope to do them for free or at a minimal cost so the barrier
for people to come is more time based than financial based.
Again, it's a space/venue issue, but if we can all work it out, I
think it would be a great thing.
