So NH.rb has been rolled into the new more general-purpose "Portsmouth Web Dev" group (I clearly lost the name war here) which is being co-organized by myself, Josh Cyr of Alphaloft, and Jeff Leombruno of Pixelmedia. Meetups will be monthly on every second Wednesday, and the first one will be held Wednesday 2/15 6:00PM at Alphaloft in downtown Portsmouth.
For the first event, my good friend Mark Bates will be coming up from Boston to give an introductory talk on CoffeeScript. Here's the abstract, in case you know not whence I speak:
Never before has writing front end applications been so easy, and so much fun! Your applications will come alive as you start writing more powerful code, quicker and more stable/secure. Come see what all the cools kids are talking about.
Future meetup topics will of course feature Ruby and Rails related topics, among other things. The whole ideas is to pull our little NH tech community closer together and help us stay on top of new developments. I hope you'll join us! Register for the group and/or RSVP for the event at :
