This is a special 10-minute lighting talk covering a basic Ruby skill each months. Past recaps have covered topics like Rack, Bundler, and RVM. You'd be surprised at some of the tricks even expert Rubyists learn during these sessions.
The main part of each meetup is the lighting talks. We aim to have 2-3 of these. Each talk lasts 10-minutes with 5-minutes for questions afterwards. We divide the talks into advanced and basic slots; aiming to keep more experienced Rubyists engaged with the advanced talks, without scarying away new comers.
- jQuery Mobile 1.1 Final - Uses jQuery 1.6.4 or 1.7.1 - Fixed toolbars, smoother navigation (transitions), ajax loader customization, jQuery 1.7, improved form and button elements, docs search. ([jQuery 1.7.2|http://blog.jquery.com/2012/03/21/jquery-1-7-2-released/]] released, bug fixes.
- COFFEE-SCRIPT 1.3.1 - provides ECMAScript 5 strict mode syntax error support at runtime, new "Generated by..." header in outputted code, and it'll now beep if a parse error occurs while in watch mode.

Each meetup wraps up with a five minute planning session during which we plan the talks for the next month. We encourage members to propose talk topics for other members, but don't be surprised if you end up giving a talk or two yourself.
The best part of the night for many of our members is after the talks are done, when we head to Original Joe's Varsity for food and drinks. We're usually there be 8:30PM and anyone is welcome to join us there once the talks are done.
This is your chance to catch up with other members, ask the questions you couldn't during the talks, or maybe just relax after a tough demo.
If you'd like to know more about upcoming meetups you can see a list of them on our homepage. Hope to see you at YEGrb soon!
