We miss you too Ben, and very glad you made the move from Wordpress :) I
especially miss how good you were at sharing leads, and know that I
benefitted from that.

For me also, knowing that there was a local Manchester/northern
community, at the time run by the legendary Dave Verwer, gave myself the
confidence to jump from Java/PHP to Ruby On Rails. At Liquid Bronze we
went onto produce code for quite a few startups in Ruby On Rails, before
it diversified from a consultancy company to a product company producing
Malinko ( http://malinkoapp.com ).

The first talk I remember was by Kevin Rutherford on hexagon
architecture. I also rapidly accumulated stickers from Brightbox, who
regularly came over/sponsored from Leeds.

Many thanks to those who keep the group going, and evolving.

I look forward to working with even more of you, and am currently
available if you'd like to talk about how I can help as a ruby
freelancer.

I'd also be interested in anyone who'se currently dipping their toes
into Ruby On Rails, but has other experience in front-end development
(i.e. JavaScript/JQuery/ReactJS) or ux/design-implementation
(css/html/gfx), who would like mentoring in exchange for help on
projects such as http://facebook.com/comadio / http://comad.io or

Happy 10th Birthday NWRUG. Here's to the next x years :) :)

See you tonight,

Ian.

Thanks Tekin,
I'd like to say how helpful NWRUG has been to me over the years. I'm in
London now and it's helped me realise what I miss from NWRUG.
The open and helpful comradery of the community has been a large
cause of my professional development. Knowing that there is an active
Ruby scene in Manchester helped me make my decision to stop dilly-
dallying with WordPress and become a full-time freelance Ruby dev, a
very good decision!
As a freelancer I was challenged and encouraged to understand my value
and was able to achieve a better day rate, and was given (and shared)
plenty of leads.
It has been a joy getting to know a number of you personally too. For
me, the best part of the meetings I came to was the socialising, sharing
news and best-practice informally, and hearing about the interesting
things being built.
So huge thanks to Will, Adam, Tekin, Ben and everyone else who made (and
makes) NWRUG happen 🙋
Ta, Ben
