    He guys, great MeetUp yesterday, but I know for some of us it went pretty fast. I took notes and screenshots and saved them as a PDF. It's up on Github with my ToDoApp, the PDF is "Code Crew Rails Notes" if anyone is interested

    Good class, but I wouldn't consider this to be an intro class. It's more intermediate.

    This was a fantastic meet by the top-notch CodeCrew organizers!

    Thanks to Felicia for being on top of "all things logistics" and it's always great to get the warmest welcoming smiles from you. :D

    Thanks Nikola, I could follow without going into the code and tools (had no time to prep unfortunately), but your walkthrough from start to finish was very clear thanks to you being very knowledgeable and methodical... qualities that helped a ton and a half. ;)

    Thanks Jamal for being there to help those stuck with errors allowing Nikola to continue with almost no interruptions (kudos!)

    Great crowd too... almost everyone was super concentrated following the session and that is quite nice as it allows to avoid disruptive distractions.

    Thanks guys! Was great to finally be able to join again. This was a fantastic meet by the top-notch CodeCrew organizers! Thanks to Felicia for being on top of "all things logistics" and it's always great to get the warmest welcoming smiles from you. :D

    @Dima J... indeed was a bit fast, but I was amazed by how much Nikola was able to cram into a mere 2 hours (once again being clear and methodical it's what made it happen).

    Great meetup. Thanks. It was a little bit too fast for me and little errors sent me off track, but I got the idea how Rails works and will have to practice more on my own.

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.
