Rome RSC 2011

Thanks to @jodosha efforts and praising the former Javaday event, now renamed into codemotion that brought in Rome many Ruby developers from Milan, Padua and other parts of Italy – the first official Ruby Social Club in Rome has been a great success. Of course, officialty is measured only in the amount of twitter spam posted about it! :-): earlier RSCs in Rome go back in time to 2006 organized by current mikamai members and more meetups promoted by @jeko in 2007.

What matters is that there's a community, there's a passion, and there's love to share knowledge - no matter who holds the meetings, the important thing is that they're being held :-).

The event was simple and direct - some beers first, then my keynote on RVM and Ruby interpreters, then Luca's one announcing his minege.ms project and after real social networking :-). I met @gravityblast after much time we didn't meet, knew the PIP group and met @svarione, @punkmanit, @leonardoperna, @riggasconi @ogeidix and other smart people. Moreover, we spent quite some nice time together, making up a really lousy and funny week-end.
Of course, huge kudos to @nhaima's car - that tirelessly carried us around Rome for two days :-)

Now, looking forward to the next meetup, thanks everyone who participed, who offered me beers and, last but not least, thanks to @etapeta for bringing me in time at the meeting - you're the real hero :-).
