I've gone to the Boston RB project night. It was fine - some short workshops, and then laptop time. I got help with a couple problems I ran into, as well as some recommendations for different gems to do the same tasks.
I don't feel I know Ruby well enough to solve problems, but I could muddle through it with you. I program in other languages, so I have a lot of practice unravelling behavior, isolating a trouble spot, and googling for something that fits the symptoms.
My company's office is a couple doors down from the Children's Museum, in walking distance of South Station, and we have good space for meet-ups. If there were interest in getting together some time, I could arrange it.
