    Does someone keep changing the time and date for this event? First it said 1/16, then it said 1/23, now it says 1/22. Please clarify. I work at nights and need to know the schedule well in advance

    Wish I could have stayed a tad longer and really mingle but in particular, I'd like to mention Jamal, the keynote tonight. Jamal was very inspirational, down to earth, smart and funny as hell.

    Jamal breaks every programming stereotype or preconceived notion I might have held as to what a coder is or should be, everything I feared becoming he proved was a lie from bad 80s sitcoms. Thank you. Everyone I spoke with tonight gave off such a warm and authentic vibe...this class definitely lives up to its name...and I hope to be spending a lot more of my free time @ GA over the next coming months. P.S: thanks Dan!

    Is it possible to go over intermediate ruby for a separate group at this event? I already attended a basic railsbridge beginner's course. Thank you!

  • won yong j.

    I'm guessing i should teach myself Ruby on rails and some ruby before i come join you all here right? or can I show up as a newbie and just hang out ?

    I'm new to the group, but I hope to meet some techies like myself at these meet ups to practice and learn with. Anyone interested in pair programming, let me know. I was told its a great way to learn or better your skills.
