    Glad to see so many people showing up eager to learn! Keep working the problems and let me know if you're not set up on our GitHub organization yet: I will get you hooked up ASAP.

    While you're at it, RSVP "Yes" for the next regular meeting on Testing, Refactoring and Design. Newbies represent! :-)

    So, my laptop is apparently having some power issues, and it seems likely I'd just wind up sitting around watching everyone... :(

      Not so! Plenty of spare laptops. Plus, pizza!

      Well, I'm lactose intolerant, so the offers of pizza merely make me cry, but woot for spares.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight! Pizza is on deck once again and the weather should be greatly improved from last month. If you have any trouble with the door, my cell is[masked]

    I've added a repo called "discussion" and started populating the issue tracker with posts. Go check it out!

    This morning I created a GitHub organization for West Michigan Ruby Training: we can create our own repositories and I thought we could use the "issues" tab as a forum.

    If you want in, click the email link on the organization page and I'll hook up your GitHub account. If you don't have one yet, now's the time!

      Clicking the link above just redirects me to my github homepage. I am following you on GH could you please add me. I can't find it in search.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
