I suggest you ...

Indy.rb Book Club

(Not necessarily connected to meetings.)

Via the mailing list, we organize a read-through of a programming book as a group. Perhaps a chapter a week, with an email-based discussion.

I would recommend Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby by Sandi Metz. (Selfishly, as I haven't read it despite thinking Sandi Metz is just the best.)

        Maybe "The Library" should make a comeback?

        I used to have a cardboard box full of programming books that I would bring to every meeting, and people could add anything, or take anything, but gave up as it almost never got used (Actual libraries here are pretty good at having most stuff), but I have quite a few books that I'd gladly trade, lend, or donate.

        I'm making terrible progress, but I've been slowly reading parts of "Clean Code", "Eloquent Ruby", and "Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture".
