At this week's Virtual Brown Bag meeting:
- JB showed off his new SpeakerRate Ruby gem
- Claudio alerted us to the Refactoring Manifesto
- We answered the question "How do I get started with Design Patterns?"
- Ever had to kill a frozen instance of Visual Studio? Yeah, I thought so. Claudio showed us how to do it with PowerShell. (It's faster)
- JB previewed his new CodeMav web site, which will be a social network for developers (integration with Speaker Rate, slide share, github, StackOverflow, etc.)
