Hello everyone,

we're back with another remote-friendly Ruby User Group! The time is 19:00 CET so that's 18:00 UTC or well 6pm UTC.

You're welcome wherever you're from as long as you adhere to our Code of Conduct - the meetup is in English.

Current schedule is two ~20min talks including Q&A, followed by splitting the audience into smaller groups for virtually hanging out (optional) :)

Joining the meetup

Normal zoom link

Zoom browser only link (sadly needs a zoom account, probably works best on chrome/ium)

The meetup will be on zoom and it will be recorded

  • if you don't want your video to be visible to others, then turn it off/leave it off
  • if you can't make it/don't want to be on zoom, watch the recording!

We're aware of the privacy concerns surrounding zoom and we share them. We're looking for better tools, we haven't found them yet.

Meanwhile, if you don't want to use the desktop client the zoom browser link above should work for you. If it doesn't you can usually get to it like this: the join link should also show a tiny "join from browser" link at the bottom of the window. It doesn't appear to require an account anymore. If the link doesn't show up, open the "Download and Install Zoom" link in a separate tab, that should make the link appear. Dark UI patterns 😖

Participating in the meetup

  • We'll take Q&A questions in Zoom via the "raise hand" feature (click on participants, there's a little raise hand link)
  • There is also a #rugb-live channel in the Ruby Berlin Slack, you can join the slack here
  • the "socializing" part is optional, naturally, our aim is to not lose that part of our meetup - we'll try to use Zoom's breakout feature to split you into random groups and give you some ice breaker questions to kick it off

Patience

Your feedback is very welcome. Things will go wrong, we'll try to fix them.

See you

Looking forward to see y'all Rubyists from Berlin and maybe all over the world.

Amr, Pascal & Tobi

Idiosyncratic RUG::B Ruby Quiz [January 2021]

Ruby Quiz is Back!

Like every year, we get a new Ruby releases as Christmas gift! In 2020, it is even a major major major release - Ruby 3.0 - what does that mean syntax-wise? What, single-line pattern assignments, just introduced with Ruby 2.7, are going to be removed again?. Let's take a closer look, together, in a fun quiz game!

OSS supply chain security for Ruby

Ruby gems aren't fundamentally safe. Several gems were infected last year, and constant attempts are being made to do the same with others. It's not only the execution that is a problem but the installation process as well.

Are there any ways for OSS users to regain control over what is being executed on their machines and their servers? Are there any ways for libraries maintainers to provide higher transparency over what they ship? Come, find out and let's exploit the Ruby gems world together!
