Coming home to Brisbane

I left Australia on the 3rd of July last year and flew to India. A day that was also my 1st wedding anniversary. My wife was not 100% impressed that I left without her (she didn’t fly out until 3 days later) and we spent half our anniversary apart.

Fast forward 17 months and we get to visit home for a few months. Just in time to miss the European winter. Just in time for the cricket season, with England and Australia vying for the Ashes. Just in time for a big stash of Christmas presents. Sweet.

Its also very exciting to have a chance to catch up with other people plying their trade with Ruby and Rails on the 4th of December, Brisbane. Or perhaps you want to ply your trade with Ruby and need encouragement. Or perhaps you want to know what all the fuss is about with Ruby and Rails.

Summary: Brisbane Ruby Brigade – 4th of December – Milton, Brisbane

    Hey Nic,

    Just wondering what really brought you to India :) I hope the aussies beat the english by a whitewash !

    and if you’re ever down south don’t forget the Sydney gang (rubyonrails.com.au — website coming soon)

  3. Peter Cooper says:

    I don’t know why but I’d always assumed you were Dutch. How odd :)

    @pratik – ooh for money and glory. Ok, just money. I got a job to work in Bangalore.

    @tim – I’ll start trying to get Sydney on my wife’s holiday plan :)

    @peter – is my grammar so bad that it seems like English is my second language? :)

    Actually I had somehow also gotten into my head that you were Dutch. Curious…

    @Jacob + Peter – I have been living here. I’ve probably never mentioned Australia before, but as the northern hemisphere dips into winter, I am certainly reminded more and more of the summer waiting for me down south!
