Who we are

The Kansas City Ruby User Group (KCRug) was founded in November of 2003, by Jason Clinton and Shashank Date. Jason and Shashank formed the group with the desire to have a common place where Ruby programmers could come together and talk about Ruby.

KCRug is a member of a community of User Groups around the country. Anyone is welcome to attend. There are no dues or fees, and you don't have to know anything about Ruby or Rails. There is a chance you might learn something from others in the group.

Ruby is a computer programming language. It is very often used together with Rails, which is a framework for quickly producing robust web applications based upon databases.

Upcoming Meetups

  • Dusty Burwell will be presenting on Sorbet From Dusty: We have developed a typesystem for Ruby at Stripe with a goal of helping developers understand code better, write code with more confidence, and detect+prevent significant classes of bugs. This talk shares experience of Stripe successfully adopting Sorbet in our codebase which had millions lines of code that were written before the typechecker had been conceived. The talk will describe:- the process to add typing to existing code;- many tools developed to support this process;- impact of this type system on safety and productivity at Stripe. Doors will open at 6:00 and the meeting will start at 6:30. Artisan Technology Group will be providing pizza and pop. We have Slack signup integrated into Visit the Contact us section and join us in the KC Ruby Slack.
