Week 3/5 of Learn Ruby the Hard Way

http://ruby.learncodethehardway.org/book/

We started a 5 week(7/23 - 8/20) Summer reading sprint from Women Who Code & SF Ruby Book Club. This is the Week3 of the Summer reading sprint. So if you dont have plans this is a best way to immerse yourself in Ruby Language. The book is available for free online 
Exercises 26 - 35 due on 8/6. If you missed Week1 and Week2 you are still good to attend Week3 except you have more homework to do which would be exercises 1-35. You will need Ruby and Rails installed on your computer and a terminal to work on this sprint. But if you didnt get them installed you can do it using the instructions http://installfest.railsbridge.org/installfest/

 

**Exercise groups are to be done (as best as possible) beforemeeting.**  
That way we have items to discuss, problems to solve, tips to share.

Schedule, exercises:  
7/23, intro - 15  
7/30, 16 - 25  
8/6, 26 - 35  
8/13, 36 - 46  
8/20, 47 - end

 

Beginners can start the install process:

Intermediate:

Let's work on the TicTacToe sprint! You'll be filling in the skeleton version of the app. Working directly with Rspec, Pry, MVC and gaining of deeper understanding of object orientation. Get it here and find the documentation for it here. Try forking before showing up!

    This was my first Women Who Code meet-up. Both organizers and attendees were warm, helpful and engaging. Mozilla was also a wonderful host and I enjoyed hearing about their open source projects. It's also worth mentioning the incredible generosity of beautiful food available. Thanks everyone!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
