    Glad to see so many positive responses!

    If you're not in the GitHub organization yet, drop your username in the comments and Keith or I will get you hooked up. It's the best way to ask questions between meetings.

    Awesome meetup, it was great attending again. Hopefully my schedule will be just as permissible when next month rolls around.

    That was great!! I learned a ton, Keith is a great teacher, and spent part of the drive back to Marshall reviewing all of what I learned. I can't wait to work on the challenges more. Thank you for putting this on and being so welcoming.

    Best place to park ?

    June 17, 2013

    • Benjamin F.

      unofficially the sanchez parking lot has been a good free parking place(there are signs that say unauthorized parking will be towed so this is your own risk), this is after the meters turn off so on street parking if you can find it. The parking ramp across from sanchez adn the parking ramp kitty corner from AdTegerity are not free but good places.

  • Brent A S.

    I'm going to make it! I assume its free?? Thank you sir, this should be fun.

    I'm new to ruby and was wondering what to bring tomorrow. laptopwise-

    I have a Win7 machine that I normally work on, but have been having some trouble getting rails to install correctly. I also have an older laptop that I've been playing with a dual-boot of Ubuntu and Windows Vista.

      We've had 100% success (knock on wood) with people using http://railsinstaller...­ to get themselves up and running before they get to class. We always pair, so it's not critical: we can work on it in class if you need to.

    As I am new to ruby and just trying things out. Would this be a good starting point or meetup to attend?
