Learn Web Development: Get on the Same Page and Start Pairing

The last meetup was a great success! This week we will try to get everyone on the same page so we can start diving into some pairing.  If you are very early in your learning journey, we will focus on getting the software installed properly and make sure you've got a plan for meeting your goals.  For those with a bit more experience, you'll be able to start identifying projects to pair on and people to pair with.

Preparatory Work:

Every week we'll have some prep work to do for people who are generally following along with the group's progress.  It's fine to be working at your own pace, but getting this stuff done will put you in roughly the same spot as others in the group.  Since this is our second meetup, the prep work mostly focuses on getting everyone onto the same page -- becoming familiar with the curriculum, installing the technology, and understanding how web development and pairing really work.


1. Read the curriculum README

2. Read the Becoming a Web Developer unit of the curriculum

3. Read and do the Installing the Technology unit of the curriculum

4. Read the Pairing and Remote Pairing unit of the curriculum

See you there!

    Hello Erik, Are we suppose to do any of the preparatory work prior to this session or is the prep work what is happening on Wednesday? Thanks!

    June 23, 2013

    • Erik T.

      Ideally, you'd get a chance to look through the prep work prior to Wednesday. It's not essential to what we'll be doing during the meetup but should be helpful for you, depending on how much experience or context you've got going in.

    Do we have to already be familiar with CLI? (I didn't want to spend money on a Mac, so I will be installing Ubuntu this weekend)

    • Erik T.

      You don't need to come in with any prior experience.

    Hey, guys! Would like to attend, but am RSVPed to another event at 6 pm that night. Okay if I show up after 7?

      Mary, you're welcome to show up after 7. We should probably be going until about 9:00.
