What do you most want to learn about Ruby/Rails?

How to write a robust API. From speed, JSON response formatting, rate limiting, OAuth signing, etc.

Do have a project you need help with? If so, where's the repo?

Not at the moment. I hope to find people who need help with projects and go from there.

Which online resources have helped you the most?

Google "Michael Hartl rails tutorial". Seriously. is fantastic as a Ruby reference, and is the place for Rails. is the best $9/month you can spend on Ruby/Rails-related videos too. Last but not least, How did people learn to code before that site existed?

What's the one tip you'd give to Ruby newbies?

It takes a long time before you feel like you've developed a foundation. Keep at it, ask a ton of questions, and don't refer to yourself as a noob, it only holds you back. We've all been there :)

Where's your favorite place to get a coffee/drink in KC? i.e. Where would you like to have a Meetup?

Snow & Co. downtown is a fantastic chill spot for anything beer/fruity drink related, and Quay Coffee in the River Market is great for a latte, plus they have a big room with a table in back.


Ruby on Rails developer & instructor, insatiably curious, sushi lover, and world traveler who cries at wasted human potential. I really enjoy helping others learn, and I'd love to help Ruby & Rails spread through KC.

What Kyle C. is saying about this Meetup Group

Awesome! I'm biased though...
