On 14th September, another la_plata.rb meetup occurred at Snappler’s office.

It all started with a fun game to break the ice and get to know people outside of your circle. In the “Who Am I?” game you’re assigned a character and you need to guess who you are by asking other people simple yes/no questions. Some of us guessed, some didn’t, but we surely had a good amount of fun.

Then came Fernando’s talk about the Dragon Ruby Game Toolkit. Fernando told us the fascinating history of Dragon Ruby and then live-coded a small demo of the toolkit, where the audience could suggest some moves and experience using the toolkit firsthand.

After Fernando’s talk, a small break to stretch our legs, have a couple of beers courtesy of our friends from Rootstrap, and eat some empanadas, courtesy of our friends from Unagi.

Then came Bruno’s talk “De pending a Completed” (From Pending to Completed), where he showed us how he and his team broke down a very complex problem into several smaller ones, and what were the new problems that surfaced by doing so.

Finally, a moment of relaxation, as there was a lot of information to process after a long day of work.

September’s meetup was amazing and we had a good time. We’re looking forward to helping organize the next one. See you all there!
