It was nice meeting you Yi and to have you share your professional experience. Not many people showed up for the Ruby at Racer meetup, so you might want to also consider Ken's Rails meetup at Surf Incubator on Thursdays.
http://www.meetup.com/The-Seattle-Ruby-on-Rails-Developers-Meetup-Group/events/91591452/?a=co1.2_grp&rv=co1.2
This next Thursday the 22nd is thanksgiving so I doubt many will show up. You should probably wait forThursday the 29th.

There are a couple of links Id like to share with all members:

the first is Net Tuts:
http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/ruby/the-intro-to-rails-screencast-i-wish-i-had/
they have a lot of great free videos, but it is poorly categorized so you have to browse through all the sections to find stuff.

I found this video on how to use rspec efficiently:
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ra8Q0M3DJYk&feature=g-vrec
I dont think the Hartl book explains how to use rspec well enough so this video will show you how to test efficiently so you are not wasting time writing tests that dont do anything. The first half hour of this talk explains very well how important testing is to all of software development.

It's great to meet some new friends tonight!

I have a suggestion that serious RoR developers should not use Windows as the development platform. You can use either OSX or Linux(Ubuntu for example).
If you don't feel comfortable installing Ubuntu onto your existing computer which is currently running Windows, you could install a VirtualBox and install Ubuntu inside it.

Have fun coding in Ruby on Rails!

Thanks,
Yi Zhang
