It’s issue #2 already

Ken Miller (@seriousken) and I gave a presentation (well, I sat there while he talked, I did make the pretty slides though) last Wednesday at the San Francisco Ruby Meetup, which was located at Yammer’s offices.

Issue #1

Welcome to the inaugural issue

Hello, my name is Todd Werth, I founded InfiniteRed. We work in RubyMotion everyday on our products and for clients. I created RubyMotionQuery (RMQ) and my co-founder Ken Miller @seriousken created Core Data Query (CDQ).

Lastly, contact me with your blog posts, tips, or just to say hi (seriously).
