Jim Weirich

1956 - 2014

Today is one that brings sadness and also joy in remembrance. We lost a dear husband, father, friend, and teacher. We will miss his joy filled, contagious laughter, his gentle insights, and his company. Jim's impact was global, yet he carried himself as if each encounter was new. We will miss Jim as our true friend.

We will celebrate Jim's legacy in the same way he embodied all that is great about the Ruby community: open, focused on learning, willing to contribute. Many efforts are in process throughout the development community to honor Jim, his contributions and his character. We will share our efforts so you can get involved.

We are grateful for the privilege of working with him. Everyday he brought joy, encouragement, a passion for teaching, and a childlike wonder at learning new things.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. We continue to pass your thoughts, prayers and posts to his family so they know that no matter where they may go, the Ruby community loves and supports them.

Peace to all

Meeting April 3rd. -- Canceled

Sorry, No meeting this month after all.
We were going to have a "Open-Mic" Roundtable.

But I'm not feeling very Agile ever since I strained my back last weekend cleaning the garage.

Meeting March 6th - ClojureScript

Topic: Developing on the Bleeding Edge: A Story of Building Libraries for ClojureScript

Creighton Kirkendall has been working in Java technologies since 1997
and has been accused of being a perl hack on more than one occasion.
For a brief period of time he drifted to the dark side and played an
executive. He even managed to get an MBA to prove it. In the end, it
turned out that a techie nerd doesn't make a happy executive. For the
last four years Creighton has been consulting for SEI at his current
client Luxottica as an architect. When not at work Creighton spends
most of his free time coaching his two children in soccer and hacking
a bit of Clojure.
