NRUG Review: TDD & Ruby

NRUG was all about Test Driven Development this time. We all arrived at Furthers offices on Wednesday at 7 to be greeted by Phil, whose arms had stretched Inspector Gadget style from hauling beer and crisps to the venue.

NorDev AngularJS Workshop Review

If you’d asked me last week what AngularJS was I’d have probably been facetious and told you it was Javascript, but with less curves. If you’d pushed me for a more sensible answer then I’d have probably gone for a hand-wavy “it’s something to do with UI/UX isn’t it?”. My excuse here is that I […]

NRUG Review: Life hacking in Ruby & Front-End finesse.

There is certainly a core of people who attend the Norwich Ruby Users Group. I’m sure it’s the same with most of the groups in Norwich, but at NRUG it’s clearer because the group is smaller. However, it is in no way cliquey and newcomers are always made very welcome. As I’ve said before, NRUG […]

It was clear having a Norfolk Developers meeting […]
