Building OpenCamp (a project management tool) - a learning series

Building OpenCamp (a project management tool) - a learning series

As part of the Google for Entrepreneurs at CoCo program we will have monthly sessions to help you get started building a real Ruby on Rails web application while learning best practices and fundamental web development concepts. Each session in the series will build on the previous session.

Each session will take place in three parts: an introductory lesson, a group coding workshop and an 'advanced topics' presentation.

We’ll aim to provide documentation and tutorials to go along with our sessions, so newcomers can catch up and dive right in.

For more information on our previous sessions and the structure of our events, visit our GitHub schedule page.


Logistics:

Parking: visit the CoCo MSP site for parking infomation. CoCo has a partnership with the Gateway Ramp (grab validations from CoCo Host to receive $5 parking). http://www.minneapolisparking.com/gateway/

Food/Drink: food, beer, soda and water will be provided

Laptop: since there is group hack-session during these events, you should bring a laptop with Ruby on Rails installed! There is a great resource at http://railsapps.github.com/installing-rails.html that can help you get started on your operating system. If for any reason you run into issues with that tutorial and can't get things running, that's okay too. Just bring your laptop to the event and we can help you get set up and be prepared to partner up with someone to follow along.

 

Google Group:

We have a forum available for members to openly discuss anything related to their Rails learning experience, please sign up at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/railsmn.

    Meet up was great.
    Is this a good place to ask the following question:
    Having trouble with postgresql -- I'm installing in Ubuntu and get the following message when attempting rake db:create from the first session:
    FATAL: role "allenw" does not exist
    ....I tried using my user name for my system instead of vagrant. Not sure if that's actually the solution. Here's what I used in the .yml file:
    development:
    adapter: postgresql
    encoding: SQL_ASCII
    database: open_camp_development
    pool: 5
    username: allenw
    password:

    Let me know if you have any ideas -- or if I should post these types of questions in a different place Thanks again for a great meetup

      (Apparently enter submits the comment) Here's a link for a starting point: http://stackoverflow....­. On my macbook I downloaded a program called pgAdmin3 which lets me add a user from the UI versus command line. Let me know if this gets you heading in the right direction.

      Mitch -- thanks very much for your reply -- I'm going to try that solution this morning.

    I enjoyed it a lot. I'm hoping to get caught up on the exercises so I'm better prepared next time.

    The beastly hot weather out there has me beat as well, and I've got a full day of stuff planned for tomorrow, so I'll have to sit this one out. :( I'll shoot for coming over there next month. My apologies for not being able to make it tonight.

    Do you really have patience for an absolute beginner?

    September 4, 2013

    • Derek R.

      As long as they realize that learning web development (Rails) isn't always easy and they show dedication, we'll be glad to meet them half way. Otherwise, patience begins to wane when the beginner doesn't take it seriously.

    • Peggy S.

      I am very eager to learn! Thanks See you tonight
