Speaking at DC Ruby Users Group in May

I was asked by Dave Naffis, one of the founders of the Washington DC Ruby Users Group, to speak at one of their upcoming meetings (the May 3rd meeting as it turns out). It seems to me that a lot of people have been speaking about, or blogging about, similar subjects lately. In a fit of counter-programming, I decided to go with a topic that I thought was neat, but a little out of the mainstream.

That topic is:

Creating Custom Diagrams using Ruby Vector Graphics (RVG)

The official synopsis for my talk is:

RVG is a drawing API that supports the creation of scalable vector graphics. RVG is bundled with RMagick, which is a Ruby interface to the ImageMagick and GraphicsMagick image processing libraries. Learn how to use RVG to create custom diagrams that can be integrated directly into web sites. The discussion will provide a general introduction to RVG, then illustrate the use of RVG in a web application that displays nearby stars in a generated perspective diagram.

My speaking engagement is 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM, May 3, 2007, at George Washington University. The exact location is:

Academic Technologies
The George Washington University
Media and Public Affairs Building
Room B02
805 21st Street NW
(3 blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro)

Note: The conference room is on the basement level.
