    Hey Guys,
    Thanks everyone for volunteering - the ratio of one to one was
    a more than perfect setup. Everyone got tons out of it.
    Thank you David for that irb talk. Altoros for lending us the fabulous Juan Pablo from Argentina, and of course David Simmons from SunToucher for helping and sponsoring the food. Couldn't have done it with out you guys. Would love to develop curriculum that helps students for a slightly more advanced level.
    That is the agenda for the next Railsbridge. Would seriously like to make this a monthly thing. Thanks again!

    I was wondering if there is still a need for volunteers for the Workshop today. I thought I would drop by to see if I can help.

      I think we're pretty well-staffed, actually, nearly one-to-one.

      I mean, if you're in the neighborhood, yeah, stop on by. Dunno if it's worth eight bucks of parking ...

    I can come only on Friday, not Thursday night.

    February 11, 2013

  • Linda Martins - M.

    Not at this time...

  • Dave L.

    You have this posted as Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 6pm. Is there something happening on that date as well?

    February 10, 2013

    • Tiffany D.

      Excellent catch! The installfest is on Thursday evening and the workshop is all day Friday.

    • Dave L.

      Also (and you probably know this), LA Ruby Conf is Saturday 2/23 in Tustin, with workshops Thursday and Friday at that same Holiday Inn you're at. I'm just posting this in case anyone else was scratching their heads and wondering if these two events were simultaneous/ conflicting.
