      Felicia, I do not own a mac machine. Would it be possible to run it of Ubuntu or possible use VM on the windows OS?

    I use Nitrous.io as my Rails dev environment. Will there be a wi-fi connection available at the site in case I need to look at my code?

    Will it be just 5 and 6? So we don't need to worry about 7 then?

    August 4

    • Felicia

      Yeah. Don't worry about 7.

    IMHO, If you work through the material on your own before joining the group you should be fine.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
