So you want to learn Ruby and Rails? Don't have much experience with programming in general? This is the meetup for you! We're going to try out a new meetup specifically for Ruby beginners, focusing on topics such as installation, basic overviews, and creating applications. It will be hands on, with time for both structure and exploration.
In our first session, we're going to get you running with Ruby and Rails, and talk through how a typical Rails 4 site is structured. Ideally you'll come with Ruby and Rails already installed, but if not, don't despair - we'll help you get it up and running!
Your guide for the evening will be Cory Foy. Cory has been involved with the Ruby community since 2006, and ran a series of "Day of Ruby" events helping beginners come up to speed with Ruby and Rails. In addition, Cory ran the Florida arm of a software services company who hired specifically through apprenticeships.
If you have any questions prior, please don't hesitate to contact Cory directly, either through the meetup board or at foyc at cory foy dot com.
