In anticipation of a large group of new Rubyists coming to Chicago in October via Code Academy, I thought it would be helpful to put together a resource for various meetups around Chicago.

First, you might consider signing up for Geek Out Chicago! -- a monthly newsletter of events around Chicago.

Here's a list of meetups that occur at least monthly:

  • Code and Coffee: Meets every Tuesday at the Starbucks by the brown line stop at Chicago and Franklin. 7AM - 9AM

  • Chicago Ruby: Meets several times a month in various locations. A great place to meet your fellow Rubyists. Chicago Ruby on Meetup

    • Downtown Chicago: On the first Tuesday of each month. 6PM-6:30PM pizza & networking. 6:30PM - 8PM meeting.
    • Elmhurst: On the third Saturday of each month at 10:30AM.
    • Hack Nights: As scheduled.
  • VimChi: Hosted by Hashrocket Chicago, this meetup happens once a month and covers various plugins and techniques for using Vim. Vim Chicago on Meetup

  • Geekfest: Groupon has continued Obtiva's tradition of weekly Geekfests. Covers a wide range of topics around Ruby, Agile, Startups, Databases... etc. Geekfest on GathersUs

  • Geek Breakfast: Once a month, Chicago's geek community meets for breakfast at Wow Bao at State and Lake. Events are posted on GathersUs
