For attendees who would like to install Ruby on their machines, there will be a monthly Install Night on the last Tuesday of each month. We recommend that you follow the RailsBridge Installfest guide. During Install Night, the organizers will be available to help if you get stuck in your installation process.

    So happy to see all of your smiling faces here at Indiegogo! Here's a link to the gem I talked about today: https://github.com/FetLife/rollout If you have any questions about feature flags and why you'd use them, or more details about how you can use the Rollout gem to turn on features for certain users or groups of users, or things about Rails or mobile web stuff, or anything at all about Indiegogo, or how to say "I see you" in Na'vi, just ask! [masked] =D

    For unix this week, we're going to try to solve some puzzles as a group at the end. If you'd like to get the files I'll be using ahead of time (to play along on your computer), they're here: http://stanford.edu/~lao793/cs1u/pipelines.tar

    Use tar -xvf pipelines.tar to unpack them. (on the command line)

    Also, windows users - don't forget that you type along you'll need access to a unix-based shell. The easiest way is signing up to https://www.nitrous.io!

    Our RSVP is tentative; we'd like to leave around 8-ish to get home. The neighborhood at that hour can be dicey. I'm in favor of traveling in a pack. Anyone else like to leave with us at 8-ish?

      Hey Diana! It's pretty safe + well-lit if you exit towards 5th Street, and then it's just a block from Mission to Market (for BART and Muni light rail). I leave this office after dark quite frequently and haven't run into any issues--though I agree, groups are good!
