Re: [PhillyOnRails] Meeting Tonight!

For those more trusting of people, less of automobiles at night:

2. Exit the train station into the parking lot.
3. Follow the parking lot edge to the right, nearest the tracks and parallel to the tracks.
4. In the corner, at the end of the parking lot, you will find a paved foot-path that connects you to another parking lot.
5. Cross this parking lot to the hotel, and find the front entrance facing the street.

Don't forget tonight's meeting (see details below).  It looks like it's
going to be great!

FYI for new folks... the hotel where we meet is less than a block from
the Fort Washington train station.  Follow these directions if you plan
to take the rails:

1. Take the R5 Lansdale/Doylestown line (either express or local)
2. Get off at Fort Washington
3. Walk across the parking lot to Pennsylvania Ave.
4. Turn right to walk down Pennsylvania (there's no sidewalk on the
close side of the street, so you should cross to the other side)
5. Walk about 200 feet and you'll see the Holiday Inn on your right,
before the first traffic light.

See you there!

          Introduction to Camping by Evan Weaver
          Camping is an open-source Ruby MVC microframework
          suitable when Rails is too much but CGI isn't enough.
          It is especially useful for intranet applications and
          rapid prototyping, or if Rails irritates you. We will
          quickly walk through a generic camping application and
          then discuss some ways Camping and Rails can be mixed,
          creating your own perfect-sized framework. Also, we
          will examine Camping's programmatic templater Markaby,
          which can also be used in Rails.

 7:45pm - Break for conversation, food, giveaways
