Ruby Tuesdays - Mondo

This is a study group and you are welcome to work on anything you would like in our friendly and helpful environment. Organizers and core team members of the Ruby Study group will be present to help you with any Ruby related questions. We welcome many levels of attendees: brand new beginners, coders new to Ruby/Rails, experienced Rubyists, and anyone in between. Work on tutorials, personal projects, or just network!

6:30 - 6:45 Arrive

6:45 - 7:10 Introductions

7:10 - 7:15 Lightning talk on Bash prompts by Pam & Rachel

7:30 Code!

Pam & Rachel are also giving an hour long workshop on customizing your Bash prompt (aka Terminal), which they will hopefully be presenting at Grace Hopper!

Beginners can start the install process:

Beginner tutorials:

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

Intermediate:

Can work through tutorials like Learn to ProgramTic-Tac-Toe and Connect Four.

Advanced:

You probably have ideas for what to work on, but if you want practice on Rails, we have a couple test-driven projects that are open for forking: Tic-Tac-Toe and Connect Four.


This event is intended to be exclusively open to people who identify as female, and is explicitly queer and trans friendly. We have a Code of Conduct as well.

    Rachel and I want to thank everyone that attended our workshop and would really appreciate any feedback you'd like to give us. We'll be improving the session to present at Open Source Bridge in Portland next month as well as (hopefully) Grace Hopper next fall.

    We know we didn't have enough time to cover some more advanced topics such as showing the status of a git repository or version of ruby but if you need some examples of how to do that, feel free to check out our git repositories and reach out to us with any questions you may have.

      :( This address is actually on my evernote list of bike-unfriendly buildlings. Gotta remember to cross-reference!

      Could you share that with us? I sense a need for a bike-friendly business map/app. Rails side project! :D

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
