Code Crew: Weekend Study Session (2/24/2013)

By request, we will have a study session this Sunday to help keep the momentum going as we continue learning how to code. Bring your lessons, assignments, projects and code challenges and let's crank out a few solid hours of study.


If you're totally new to the group, a few short suggested tasks to do before this meetup are listed below. These are totally optional but you'll get more out of the meetup if you at least attempt these before hand. Don't worry if you get stuck because someone will be able to help you out at the meetup.


Suggested Things to Do

It may be a good idea to:

  1. Work through Try Git (~15 mins)
  2. Download and install Git on your computer
  3. Set up a GitHub account
  4. Download and install Sublime Text 2
  5. Download and install Google Chrome, if you don't have it already

Probably also:

  1. Watch Computer Programming in 5 Minutes
  2. Watch Basic Command Line Tutorial, and follow along (~5 mins)
  3. Go through the first chapter of one of the books in the "E-book" section of this post

And if you're really feeling brave:

  1. Take a stab at our first code challenge!

Hope to see you there!

    Really looking forward to this! Our startup has just launch our first web app @ gatheringup.com. I would love to do some A/B testing on features and get some feedback at the meetup, if that is ok?
