    Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend this meeting :\ would anyone be interested in doing a mini-code review online? I would be willing to help out a total beginner, and would love if someone could look at my code as well!

      Would love to do a review of your code, Jacob. Feel free to hit me up on twitter (@jbrowning) with the details.

      I am totally up for reviewing code. ([masked]) Also, I think you might find some people on the mailing list, or on the IRC channel (#indyrb) that would be willing! :-)
