Riding with Ruby - Learn to program in Ruby

Learn to program in Ruby

This is a hands-on workshop to explore computer programming.  No prior experience necessary.  We'll provide you some Ruby code to read in spreadsheets and build web pages and graphs, then challenge you to adapt the programs to do something different.  We'll go through the answers and solve the puzzles together.  See http://www.ridingwithruby.com for a preview.

In order to be realistic yet interesting, all data and pictures come from last year's well-known pro cyclist race in Colorado.

Bring a notebook computer to work on.  Mac, Windows, and Linux are all okay.  Light food, snacks, and refreshments will be provided.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
