Code Crew Community
Collaborative Coding - each and every Sunday we meet at Alley NYC to crank out some code. Come join some of the coolest people that are learning how to code in NYC.
Ruby on Rails Tutorial Study Group - learn Ruby on Rails by going through Michael Hartl's famed book. Meets every Sunday at Alley at 3:30pm.
Programming Languages Study Group - Coursera’s Programming Languages course starts soon and a bunch of Swabbies have decided to organize a study group to go through the course together. Shoutout to Alex Oviedo for taking the lead on this! Test to Learn Ruby - This workshop will present automated testing as a way to better understand the problem being solved and how to solve it. The examples will be in Ruby, though the concepts are transferable to other languages and frameworks.
HowToCode.io - this site will teach you high quality web development, for free. Our aim is to take you from Novice To Employable.
This week’s code challenge comes from Project Euler and is presented as follows:
Project Euler Problem #2:
Each new term in the Fibonacci sequence is generated by adding the previous two terms. By starting with 1 and 2, the first 10 terms will be:
1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, ...
By considering the terms in the Fibonacci sequence whose values do not exceed four million, find the sum of the even-valued terms.
Special thanks goes to Noble Desktop for donating space for our iOS7 Workshop and to Code Coalition for teaching the session. As always, a special thank you goes out to Alley NYC for providing us with space for our coding sessions, study groups and workshops.
Until next time.
