Week 5/8 of Learn Ruby the Hard Way

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

We started a Summer reading sprint from Women Who Code & SF Ruby Book Club. This is the Week5 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. 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/

Beginners can start the install process:

http://installfest.railsbridge.org/installfest/

Beginner tutorials:

http://tryruby.org/ and http://www.codecademy.com/tracks/ruby

Intermediate:

Can work through tutorials like Learn to Programhttp://rubykoans.com/ and http://ruby.railstutorial.org/

Advanced:

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 hereand find the documentation for it here. Try forking before showing up!

This event is exclusively open to people who identify as female

    I pulled some muscles in my back yesterday and have been walking around like a Cirque du Soleil contortionist reject. Cannot make it today but hope to meet up next time.

    Hello!

    Next week marks week 5 of 8 for Learn Ruby The Hard Way sprint. We will benchmark with a small discussion about Ex. 26 and read the code together.

    Ex. 26: http://ruby.learncodethehardway.org/book/ex26.html

    ----

    For those who are interested in jumping in and starting, there's still time! The exercises are pretty quick to do (3-5 a day). You should be at ex. 26 by next Tues. If you are already deep in the book, that's awesome. It will still be good to talk about it for better comprehension.

    Ok great, thanks for your time. I hope to see you soon!

      Lol, no you're not. At all. Just trying to benchmark so we can see progress for this sprint. So If you get to 26 or not, we'll see you tomorrow! :)
