This is the first London Ruby User Group meeting of 2012, bringing talks from Chris McGrath on I18n, and Joe Corcoran on Judge.

In the first session for LRUG, Chris McGrath will talk about lessons learned localising a rails app into nine different languages, including:

  • Why we localised our app
  • Why you might want to use rails i18n even if you’re only planning one language
  • A little bit about how the i18n gem works for those unfamiliar with it
  • Common problems you’ll have and ways to work around them

In the second session of the evening, Joe Corcoran will be talking to LRUG about building Judge, a client side form validation gem for Rails 3. Joe will explain how he has tried to keep it lightweight and unassuming, why he ditched jQuery in favour of plain old JavaScript and what he learned about Rails i18n, form builders and HTML data attributes along the way.

Joe will also give a brief introduction to Travis, the distributed build system that I’ve been using for continuous integration.

LRUG is free to attend, but registration is required -- get more info and sign up for this talk here:
