This month is all about you. We’re interested to know what you have been building, what have you learned lately, etc. Is there a neat little class you made or a trick you found?

Please step up and share something with the group!

We’ll also be hearing from Ross Andrews about his recent play with the Dhaka Parser Generator for Ruby. Using Dhaka, we will go through building a lexer, parser, and evaluator for a small query language. Then we’ll tempt the demo gods and show a Rails application with a search system that utilizes our new language. No previous knowledge of lex/yacc is required, although a basic understanding of BNF and how a parser works is recommended. Ross Andrews is a Rails developer in Austin. He works for the SuperPoints Network, making Rails and Facebook applications
