Ruby & Rails Project Group is at 6:00-9:00 pm
Thursday is Book Night
We are supplementing Cynthia Kiser's Cal Tech Study group by reading the discarded choices of books and those that have already been read there. Our first book together: Michael Hartl's Rail Tutorial.
Please read the book and try out the code at home. As a group we'll discuss what you did and did not like about the implementation. What worked, what didn't.
If you are brandy new to Ruby or Ruby on Rails, don't feel intimidated, everyone has to start somewhere. We will help you get up to speed if you are willing to put in the time. There are a lot of great tutorials to get you up and rolling even if you've never programmed before.
A Path to Learning
Go to http://rubilicious.github.io/
A lot of thought was put into setting up a path to learning Ruby and Rails as laid out in the Phases links. There are a lot of great resources on this site. Feel free to fork and contribute to it. It is a Middleman blog on GitHub.
Tuesdays we self study or work on our own projects or you can find someone to work on a project with you.
If you are more advanced, you can have a dedicated study night and you can pitch in with your expertise when needed. We are actively looking for coaches and mentors so feel free to volunteer.
Maybe you have a demonstration you are willing to share with the group.
