We’re almost though August, Philadelphia, so be sure to get in those last minute runs to the shore. Just save your trips for Tuesday or Thursday as those are the lone empty days on our events calendar.

This week is full of bar room meetups as both the Build Guild and Philly.rb plan on chatting over brews. Though If you’d like to stretch a bit, head on over to University City to watch a documentary about the women involved in the ENIAC, the world’s first computer developed at Penn.

Monday, August 16st – Take a break from programming the next great web app to come socialize with your fellow Philly Ruby enthusiasts. Philly.rb’s pub night is taking a break from the ‘burbs to host a night of fun and networking in Center City. Just don’t go in talking about PHP. We hear its like wearing a Mets jersey to a Phils game. 6.p.m. Center City. INFO. [view more events]

Wednesday August 18th – Philly’s long list of firsts aren’t just limited to Ben Franklin and company, the city was also home to the ENIAC, the first computer. Hive76 and the Rotunda are teaming up for a showing of “Hidden Her-story, the Top Secret Rosies of WWII,” a documentary about the women involved in the creation of the world’s first gadget, mere yards from where it was created. 7 p.m. University City. INFO. [view more events]

Wednesday August 18th – If documentaries aren’t your thing (and beer is), then head on over to Build Guild’s meetup at Nodding Head. We’d tell you what was on the agenda… if there was one. 6 p.m. Center City. INFO. [view more events]
