The Lansing Area Ruby Meetup

  • Feb 11, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Neo Center

It's time for the February Ruby meetup! Chris Fritz and Patrick Hawkins will be presenting....(drumroll, please)

Your First Ruby App

Ruby is a fun, expressive language that's delightful to code. While most people are familiar with Rails, there's a lot you can build, just from the command prompt. Chris will show you how to get started building your first Ruby app.

Build Static Sites in a Snap

Whether building a site for a client or trying to prototype an interface, building quick HTML/CSS websites is a useful skill. But, it can be a pain in the neck. Enter, static site generators. Patrick Hawkins will introduce you to static site generators, highlight some use cases, and help you build static sites, faster.

    Relative to last month's topic, would appreciate some recomendations for downloading and installing the Ruby platform on a PC (W7)

    • James F.

      dk.rb install

      Then, you're ready to use Ruby. I'll be making a video soon, but probably not before Tuesday.

    For anybody who is new to Git and looking for a good introduction, I recommend
    It's a good introduction and overview done in sensible stages.
    Note that you can run Git locally for 'just your stuff' and/or work off of GitHub for shared development. Same concepts pretty much throughout.

      Didn't mention yesterday, but I'm on the Mac, which probably has an impact on what I'm using. I'm just now downloading GitHub Mac to check it out; I may have something useful to share by next week's meeting

      GitHub for Mac looks interesting. It looks like it works with local repositories too, in case you don't want to put your stuff up on GitHub.

  • Joe R.

    Sorry that I'll miss out.

    February 5, 2014

    • Chris

      Sorry to hear that Joe! I hope you can reserve the second Tuesday of March to stop by next time. :-)
