Google’s first web crawler was written in Python, and GitHub upended the open source world using Ruby. Both languages have spawned innovative frameworks that help you build applications not just quickly, but cleanly, and definitively raised the the bar for web development. Their meetup communities for these languages are noteworthy for not just for bringing together experienced programmers, but reaching to the beginners who will be tomorrow’s experienced programmers. In this competition we invite Ruby and Python coders to come and build things together—if not on the same teams, at least on the same room.

Hack on your most far fetched ideas with like-minded engineers, then enjoy drinks on the roof of Meetup HQ while the judges deliberate. You might win a wonderful prize and the chance to come back and compete in the grand finale, and you will definitely score some free food, drinks, and good company.
