Wow, that comment is so vague it almost looks sarcastic. I was answering an auto request for a review of our meeting. Didn't know it would just show up on this board. But the meeting was great. I really appreciate all the work you guys are putting into this. It's a tremendous recourse. You are racking up major karma points for this!

Agreed, thanks for all the time and effort put into this. I can't tell you how helpful it has been to my learning! Excited to try the rspec test and start git.
Thanks! Glad it's been valuable, but we just try and nudge you in the right direction: any benefit you've derived is from your hard work and willingness to push yourself. Keep it up and there's no limit to what you can accomplish.
Thanks for the help this evening Bill.
After I got the kids to bed I reran the 4 steps. On my 2nd try I gotStep 1 = 1:31Step 2 = 0:52Step 3 = 1:03Step 4 = 5:00
Total = 8:26
I'll keep at it and plan on testing next time.
Excellent! I knew you'd have no trouble. :-)
Here is a link to the instructions for those of you who wish to continue on with the Rspec challenge tonight!

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!
Friendly reminder: if you want to do the FizzBuzz Speed Challenge at the meeting on Monday, this weekend is the best time to practice! :-)
Here are the guidelines, for your convenience:https://github.com/WestMichiganRubyTraining/discussion/issues/10
Also, Keith is putting the final touches on the Rspec Speed Challenge for the intermediates who've been working with him on that.
Lots of fun stuff planned for this month, including our standard "intro to ruby" for newbies, so feel free to bring your friends!

I know this isn't technically the 3rd Monday, but Keith and I are both busy on the 21st, so we're pretending the month begins one day earlier. :-)
I checked the calendar, it and it doesn't look like it conflicts with any other tech meetups, so I hope this works for everybody.

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