Dev Toledo - First meeting
Toledo needs a group that is less concentrated on a programming language, framework, or technique, and more open to new languages, frameworks and techniques. That is what Dev Toledo is all about.
We are a group of software craftsman that want to learn and share knowledge with others in the area. It doesn’t matter if you’re a .NET developer, an iOS developer, a Ruby developer, or a Front End developer. We hope you will come out and join us.
Our first meeting is November 15th at 6:30 pm @ Seed Coworking in Downtown Toledo. Scott Radcliff will discuss the new and deprecated features of Rails 4.
Follow @DevToledo on Twitter for more info.

Introduction to Passbook (DevToledo)
On January 17th, Jamie Wright will discuss using Passbook.
Passbook is new open standard developed by Apple which allows users to quickly access scannable barcodes and other information useful for real-world situations from their iOS devices. These situations include scanning boarding passes, redeeming coupons, or showing a membership card among other available actions.
In this session we will learn what a Passbook pass is made up of, design guidelines for a pass, and how to create a pass from within your own application. We will also touch on how these passes can be updated and what is needed to support a pass from your own server including the creation of passes and how to support push notifications. This session will show how you can interact with Passbook from your server using Ruby and how you can interact with Passbook from your iPhone applications using Passkit.

DevToledo February: Go Go Gadget _____
Are you tired of programming in languages from the 80’s and 90’s? Sick of the ‘slow’ performance of ‘pretty’ languages like Ruby or Python? Why not try Go?
Go is shiny new language created at Google. It’s fast, it’s functional, it can do some pretty cool stuff.
In this ‘choose your own adventure’ style talk I talk about what you want me to. Well not really… you’ll get to choose between building a command line tool with Go or building a simple, performant web application. Through building something we will explore some of the nuances of this exciting new language without the boredom of just reading the docs.
It goes without saying that this talk will not be extremely in depth and it will (hopefully) be accessible to even the newest of programmer.

With a growing number of devices to build for, this looks really interesting. We hope to you there. All are welcome.

Diving into Raspberry Pi
DevToledo meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month.
So what is a Raspberry Pi and what does it really do? Remember all those cool ideas you had that would never work because you had to hook up a giant computer that weighed 10 pounds? Well, that's not a problem any more. Raspberry Pi is a tiny computer that runs Linux and gives you low level I/O on a few of its connectors. Since the PI is for Python it will be the language I use for the examples. I'll show you how it works and maybe blink some lights and make something move.

Coding Kata. Doing it Live.
We are doing something a little different this month. We are going to TDD a Code Kata, but with a little twist. We don't know which kata we are going to solve until the night of the event. The kata will get chosen by the attendees, and if they choose, they will help program the kata. Programming is not required to attend. Scott Radcliff, Jamie Wright, and Keith Thompson will all pair on the problem with each programmer working on it for a few minutes before the next one takes over.
This will be a crowd exercise with help from everyone on the particulars of the solution and hopefully some pairing.
If you are new to TDD, curious how others test drive their code, or are just curious about how a program gets driven by tests, this is a great opportunity.
Here is the list, if you want to browse them before hand: http://codingdojo.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?KataCatalogue

Replacing the Rails Asset Pipeline with Grunt.js
On November 14th, we welcome Joe Fiorini to talk about why and how he moved away from Rail's asset pipeline and whether or not it's the right move for you. He'll go into how he replaced all the features of Sprockets with Grunt & Bower, and a brief introduction to both. Then he will show how you can have a similar setup by using Half Pipe, the asset pipeline replacement for picky front-end developers. After this talk, you will be ready to enjoy a much happier experience working on client-side code.
