• setting up your general Rails work flow

• getting your beginner Rails projects unstuck

• learning more about shell/BASH.

    Hate the fact that I missed the meetup for newbies as I was unaware that this group existed. Can't wait to get with you all!!!

    Excellent! Got started with Ruby on Rails. Loren Norman was really helpful explaining everything. Than you Al Snow for arranging the Meetup for Newbies.

    I have Windows 8.1 with Bitnami Rubystack installed. Since it relys on a start menu (the geniuses in Redmond thought cute little picture boxes would eliminate the need for start menus - wrong again as usual) I installed Classic Shell as well.

    Windows 7. Wish I still had the work Mac...
