Hack Night

Our monthly Hack Night has been gaining momentum, and is now a great event! There is no structure-- come with questions or a project that you'll be working on, and hear what others are up to in your community. Also feel free to suggest a discussion topic and follow up with the attendees there.

PARKING: Feel free to park in front of the building in spots labeled "RESERVED: Seismic Partners Only"

    Thanks everyone for coming out! We'll be working on Ruby Quiz #2 for the next hack night. You can find it here:

    Once the repo is posted, go ahead and fork to your hearts' content. If you want people to look at/comment on your code, go ahead and submit a pull request from your repo and mention that you are ok with people commenting on your stuff. Try not to take comments personally. In my experience, most people genuinely wish to help and don't mean anything personally.

    For people who might comment on code, we didn't really establish any hard and fast rules (kinda difficult in a group, let's be fair), but general rules of respect probably apply here. Sometimes well-intentioned words can be hard to interpret correctly when it's just a bunch of text on a screen.

    I'll try and get a solution out early this month so you guys have something to work with. Feel free to do something (even maybe a method or so) yourselves if you feel so motivated. If you guys post some chunks before I post a solution, I will try and integrate them into my solution and see how they work out so we can talk it out.

    Hey, it was great to see you guys and it was cool to try and present the Ruby Quiz stuff on the fly like that. I think we kinda indicated that we would move forward with question #2 just to clear the air and have something fresh to work with. Matt and I and a couple others tossed back and forth having discussion on the RubyQuiz stuff on the group github account, so, if you aren't already a member of the github group charlotte-ruby (https://github.com/orgs/charlotte-ruby), post something here and someone will get you added. Quiz #2 is located here if you want to start in on it before it gets posted to the repo (for those of you attempting to solve the quiz, avoid the answers - the header 'Quiz Summary' notates the start of the answer segment): http://rubyquiz.com/quiz2.html

    Do as much or little as you would like. For those of you thinking that you don't want to bite off the whole thing, go ahead and take a small piece. I'll try and create a solution again so we can code-review it.

    I marked this event on the 809 group calendar, so there should be no issues this time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
