West Side Ruby & Rails Study Group

Let's Learn Ruby & Ruby on Rails 

We meet every Thursday at 6:30 - 10:00 pm on the Westside in Santa Monica at Panera.
501 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA ‎(310) 566-3080.

We meet with our laptops, in the patio outside. Come work on a personal project or join us in learning Ruby or Ruby-on-Rails from scratch. We're inviting mentors each week to help out with both newbies & the more advanced. A collective knowledge base!

Each month we plan a get together and showcase our work, discuss advanced topics and network with other women programmers.

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. We've started to pair-program... come find your pair! You'll learn faster!  

We're always looking for speakers, mentors and general help.

Learn Ruby the Hard Way - Great place to start. ( a documented repo here )
Rails for Zombies - When you just want to absorb.
TryRuby.org  - An interactive application to see immediate results.

If your more Advanced:

    It's 6:30 and I'm here at Panera. Don't see anyone yet, so I'll stick around for another 15 minutes. Halloween has presumably thinned the herd.
