In our continuing focus on educating Northeast Ohio on Ruby development, we have decided to take a slightly different direction. Over the next 6 months, we will be developing an application using Ruby on Rails (the popular framework for Agile web development), starting from scratch, implementing new features of the app with every meeting. Each month will have a different theme, starting this month with "Rails from Scratch". This series is meant for anyone with interest in Ruby, from newbies to experts. It will be highly interactive, giving everyone a chance to get questions answered and feel comfortable with the topic. Basic object-oriented programming knowledge is assumed. Don't have Ruby or Rails on your computer? Stop by our Installfest table for help getting your machine ready so you can follow along. The schedule for this month's meeting looks like: - 6:00 - whenever Installfest - 6:30 - 6:45 Introduction - 6:45 - 7:00 Pizza - 7:00 - 7:15 Rails intro - 7:15 - 7:30 Git/Github - 7:30 - 7:45 BDD Workflow - 7:45 - 8:00 Features we'll be developing - 8:00 - 8:30 Developing features - 8:30 - 8:45 Retrospective Ready?
