Hey fellow Ruby user group members -
Excuse my interruption but I have a last minute invitation to extend to the members of the group.
Nashville Software School is having a meetup on Thursday morning between
8am and 10am. It's a chance for our mentors (or prospective mentors)
to come in and get a chance to meet all of our third cohort of students
plus it's a chance for the students to start making contacts with more
of the mentors. Many of the
mentors who will be there are people that students wouldn't otherwise
until the last 3 months of the program. It's a huge confidence booster
for the students to see how many of you are supporting the program.
students are in the third week of our six month program so they just
to help mentor - trust me, you do!
The location of the
meetup is Railyard Studios, 429 Chestnut Street, Studio C, Nashville, TN
37203. That is the corner of Houston Street and Chestnut. There is a
gravel parking lot on that corner - park in that lot for our meeting.
We're on the "south" side of Chestnut. The building is a large old
brick mill building that was one of the buildings in a sock factory that
used to be one of the largest employers in Nashville. There is a
wooden stairway leading from the gravel lot to a large orange industrial
door on the elevated main floor of the building - we want to go up
those stairs and through that orange door. Be careful - there's a step
down right inside the door. Inside the orange door is a very large
space that serves as a showroom for Railyard Studios - that's where we
will be meeting.
There will be a short program while we're
there but most of the time will be devoted to allowing you to get to
meet students and check out Railyard Studios. We'll try to run a few
tours of the production side of Railyard so that you can see how they
make their very cool furniture. You can also check out their products
have coffee and donuts/pastries/bagels (I haven't decided which yet).
If you have any questions, please let me know. I look forward to seeing you on Thursday morning.
