Week 3/5 of Learn Ruby the Hard Way
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.

7/30, 16 - 25
