SacRuby.new

Ruby on Rails Basics Bootcamp

This is going to be a special SacRuby.new meet up held in conjunction with HackerLab and Davis Startup Weekend (http://davis.startupweekend.org). 

In a (one-time) longer session, we are holding a Ruby on Rails Boot Camp class to help prepare participants for the Startup event starting the following day.

Feel free to drop in anytime, but note this will be a hands-on session. We'll be building a basic application together from scratch using Ruby 2.0 and Rails 4. We will be teaching basic familiarity with Rails and Rails terminology. Even if you aren't going to be in the Startup event, this is a great way to start getting familiar with this popular framework.

Having a Linux or Mac OS machine is highly recommended using RVM. If you have a Windows box, please try to get a Ruby 2.0 install running before the class. Use the forum on this site to ask questions ahead of time. 

We'll be back to our regular SacRuby.new agenda in December with a basic OOP class.

    Hello Ruby on Rails Bootcamp folks. This longer session (starting at 5, going straight through to 9 or so), will be split into demo/lectures and lab time. To get the most out of the class, come with the following pre-class homework completed: pre-installed on your computers:

    0) For platforms like the Mac, XCode will be necessary to build Ruby and various gems.
    1) For Mac, highly recommend Homebrew as a package manager
    2) A programming editor of some kind that you like
    3) Ruby 2.0 (highly recommend you have RVM installed to help with this, but not required). This install should also result in a recent RubyGems and Bundler set of tools.
    4) Heroku toolbelt -- https://toolbelt.heroku.com/ (if you don't have git already installed, allow the toolbelt to install it for you)
    5) Postgresql (homebrew or another package manager is really helpful for this)
    6) A free Heroku account: https://api.heroku.com/signup/devcenter

      While you can do this at Hackerlab, some of these things take up a lot of bandwidth, and just won't be practical to do all at the same time (or may fail entirely).

      Also, please feel free to bring food and drink for yourself...this is a long session, and while lab time can be used to step away to grab anything you may need, time will be tight.

      Our regular SacRuby.new meetings every 2nd Thursday are great for new programmers (we just started a new cycle and cater to new folks). This week's meeting is a little different and while you will definitely get a sense of what Ruby on Rails is all about, we won't be going over basic programming itself this month.

    Haven't messed w/ Rails since upgrading to OS X Mavericks. Any known issues?

    November 5, 2013

    • Christopher H.

      No it should be fine…although we recommend Mac/Linux folks install RVM. On mac you'll need latest Xcode too and home-brew helps a lot (brew.sh). We'll be installing Rails 4 and using bundler.

    I will try and meet again. I am right now about 90% sure that I will be there. Curious. are there any iOS developers? in this group?

    November 2, 2013

    • Christopher H.

      Great, look forward to seeing you there. Many of us are also profession iOS devs (and Android devs, etc) too!

      that would be great, it would be nice to talk to someone. All my work I do is for the Cancer Community. http://www.peernaviga...­. I volunteer all my time in creating software programs that would other wise not be available for them. THANK YOU
