East Side Ruby & Rails Study Group

NEW LOCATION - Downtown L.A.

Syrup Desserts 611 South Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA

Let's Learn Ruby & Rails One Week at a Time

For your convenience there are two groups meeting simultaneously one on the East side of L.A. in Downtown Los Angeles and one on the West side in Santa Monica.

We meetup with our laptops and are working through Zed Shaw's Learn Ruby the Hard Way. We'll discuss it and go over the examples together. We'll help each other figure out the harder parts and really understand it. You should be able to do some work on your own too so we can all stay on the same page/book on both sides of town. Our emphasis is on really getting down the basics and being able to discuss it with each other instead of rushing forward.

We meet every Thursday night 6:30-10:00 pm.

Don't feel intimidated if you are brandy new to Ruby or Ruby on Rails; we will help you get up to speed if you are willing to put in the time. If you are more advanced; you can learn by helping others learn while having a dedicated study night. Maybe you even have a demonstration you are willing to share with the group.

Once a month both sides of town will meet up and have a demonstration of something new. We intend on learning a lot. Spread the word. You don't have to be a woman to attend but we do want to have a good learning environment where no one is nervous to ask the most basic question.

    Hey all - I am a total beginner - is this suitable for someone who knows nothing about ROR who wants to learn?

    Hi all -I'm here early, purple scarf if anyone gets here earlier. Also, I realized halfway through sitting traffic on the 110 that I forgot my mac power cord, and I couldn't handle turning around in the traffic. So if anyone has a spare power cord handy, I would appreciate it. :)
