Malmö.rb meetup on 2019-03-05

Theme: Serverless

The March 5 meetup with Malmö Ruby Brigade has a theme of exploration of the new & learning from experiences.

We hope to meet you there!

Target Audience

This is a free event for people interested in Ruby.

We welcome both experienced programmers and total beginners to our events. In fact, we take great pride in making a welcoming atmosphere to newcomers to tech.

If this is your first time, you may find the How To Malmö.rb page helpful.

Planned Activities

We’ll have a string of talks for you, interpolated by some snacks and time to meet the other attendees.

Olle Jonsson: No server? Ruby functions on AWS Lambda

AWS Lambda, a cloud service to host “single-function web services” or “serverless functions”, has begun offering support for Ruby. Olle Jonsson takes us through what that means, and what you could do with it.

There will be Ruby code and Amazon Web Services configuration shown, but it’ll all be explained. No Ruby or cloud computing experience required.

Jens Nockert: RuboCop

Why is breaking the rules important? Tips on how to change the rules to fit your needs and why you should do it.

Location: FooCafe, Stora Varvsgatan 6a, 211 19 Malmö

The location

FooCafe is at Stora Varvsgatan 6a, in Malmö. That’s within walking distance from Malmö C where the trains stop. The building is a huge glass box. See also the FooCafe Malmö Location map page.

The location is on the ground floor, and doors open with motors. It is fully accessible to people with mobility issues.

When is it?

Just after office hours, say 17:30, and for about 3 hours. We try to keep the most interesting bits accessible to people who can not hang around too long, by placing them in the middle of the event’s timeline.


FooCafe – our kind host – will serve refreshments a free snack in the form of pizza. Details of that will be explained at the event, by a FooCafe representative. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free pizza options will be asked about when we’re there.

By the way: What is Ruby?

Ruby is a programming language which says it “optimizes for programmer happiness”. We’ve started a separate Introduction to Ruby page, to get you up to speed.
