The inaugural Philly Build Guild meetup was this evening. The event, organized by nonother than Chad Pytel of ThoughtBot, attracted about a dozen people from the Philly tech community.
By my count only about half the guys (they were all guys) were Rails aficionados, which was nice because not all the conversations gravitated towards the latest shiny Ruby on Rails developments, which is what usually happens at the Philly.rb meetups. The discussions ranged from Wolfram Alpha to Monkey Knife Fights (the local brew) to the diverse projects we’re all working on.
Good people, good environment, great times.
