Chicago Ruby Hack Night - Pry for Exceptions

  • May 9, 2012 · 6:00 PM

This is late notice, I know, but: Come on out and hack!

Let's work on our Ruby debugging skills. Did you know that your Ruby program can jump into the pry debugger whenever it encounters an exception? If you've ever thought you needed a better way to track down an error you'll want to check out pry and pry-exception_explorer. Bring some code you've been wanting to explore (maybe the code you wrote at an earlier hack night) or write something new on Wednesday and get some practice using the pry debugger to explore how your program works and why it doesn't work.

Info on the Pry ecosystem

All levels of Ruby expertise are welcome, including beginners. Bring your laptop with Ruby installed. We'll pair up to do the Ruby coding.

Our host, Enova Financial, will provide food and drink.

See you there!

Do you know any women who would like to learn Rails? Let them know about the Railsbridge workshop June 1 and 2. Beginners welcome!

    Thanks Kevin. I'm going to pass on this one. I'll save your map for the next time though. I was a runner at the options exchange as a kid. Cool place to work.

    Stu - I worked at the CBOT for 5 years and know a sweet spot. There is free parking on the street starting at 6pm (til 6am) on Van Buren (on the north side of that one-way street) between Financial and Wells. Right in front of Starbucks etc, across the street from Dunkin Donuts.
