July: the odd month of the summer in Edinburgh. Usually the rainiest, the city none-the-less hums with activity in the build up to the Festival and the Fringe. There's that flurry of other festivals: Film, Magic, Jazz & Blues and the start of the Art Festivals that get underway, and the seating for the Tattoo finally gets finished up, clinging to the edge of the Castle.
This month, we have a short talk from Eva Koleli: An Introduction to Arel. Eva works at FreeAgent, and uses Rails and ActiveRecord there to interact with their database. She's had cause to jump down a level of abstraction from ActiveRecord to Arel before, and thinks we all might benefit from adding this tool to our Ruby toolbelt.
After the talk is over, there will be plenty of times for questions and for general chat. We'll supply some snacks to help get your hunger through to dinner, and CodeBase has water available from their kitchen. We're a friendly bunch of humans and newcomers are most welcome!
