Los Angeles Hack Night at SPIRE.IO + Intro to Ruby Sinatra

Presentation:

Introduction to Ruby Sinatra - Building a web application with Sinatra

Presented by Carlo Flores, Director of Operations, SPIRE.IO ( @flores on GitHub and @lolcatstevens on Twitter)

In a talk for our beginning hackers, Carlo will present on creating a simple contact form in Sinatra using Ruby and Amazon web services. Our goal is to quickly give you the foundation to build more complicated and feature rich web applications.

Prerequisites:
A laptop. Please bring your laptop.
You're encouraged to set up the following beforehand:
Ruby
Sinatra gem
Create a free account at aws.amazon.com (you'll be able to send many test emails for free using Amazon)
Create a Github.com account
You can learn more about Ruby Sinatra at the website:
http://www.sinatrarb.com/
If anyone needs help, we'll have people available to help with installation/setup.

Folks uninterested in this presentation are, of course, free to hack on whatever they'd like...

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.
