Welcome to the Groupsite for MARS, the Mid-Atlantic Ruby Society.
MARS is about the Ruby programming language (and its libraries, tools, events, etc.), in the mid-Atlantic region (roughly Pennsylvania to South Carolina). The main purpose is for local/regional RUGs to coordinate calendars, so they don't schedule events opposite each other, but Ruby tips, jobs, etc. are also OK. Mention of events outside the region is OK, but please keep it brief.
