Friendly reminer: Denver Railsbridge tomorrow

Hi all,

 

Mike, Desi, a terrific group of Teaching Assistants and I are thrilled to present our first Denver Railsbridge event after two smashing successes in Boulder.

 

Here's a couple of tips for making this event a great one for you too:

• Please bring your laptop with an up-to-date browser (whichever platform you choose is fine)

• If you have a Mac, install the FREE XCode development environment

• Come hungry to learn




 



Location

Galvanize (the former Rocky Mountain Bank Note Building)

1062 Delaware St., Denver, CO 80204 map

 

 



Parking

There's plenty of street parking available in close proximity to Galvanize along Delaware, 11th and Cherokee.

 

InstallFEST :: 6 p.m. Friday


We need to INSTALL the Railsbridge dev environment on your laptop so we'll use Friday night to do that while we mix/mingle courtesy of our generous FEST sponsor, Pivotal Labs. Look for healthy bites, soft drinks, juices and a variety of adult beverages.

Attendance at the InstallFEST is mandatory to make sure you're up and running for Saturday. Even if you've attended a Railsbridge in the past, come Friday to verify you have the latest curriculum which is updated frequently.

Important Note: If you have a Mac, the most important thing is getting XCode installed before you come!




Saturday workshop :: 9 a.m. Saturday


Our workshop host, MapQuest, is generously providing a healthy catered lunch with something for the meat-eaters, vegetarians and vegans among us. Besides learning Ruby on Rails you won't go away hungry this weekend!
