    This was great, it's a really great experience to connect with a community offering free programming education. I hope to give back myself some day. Thank you!

      Make sure to dig into all the online resources listed on http://billgathen.com­: the ruby community is very generous across the board. A great place to be :-)

    Looking forward to a real-life meeting this month! Keith will be unveiling "phase two" for all you Fizzbuzz grads, and we have plenty of first-timers this month: should be great.

    As usual, if the downstairs door is locked, call me at[masked] and we'll come down to let you in.

    And of course, pizza!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
