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, Eva will be running a workshop, providing a toy database to help you play around with Arel directly.
When all that is done, there will be plenty of time 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!
