Women Who Code & Ruby Rookies mixer - Project Euler & Algorithms

What -

What you've been waiting for all of your life!  Or for all of May.  No, not that bar of exquisite dark chocolate.  It's, Women Who Code & SF Ruby Mixer! Come help each other and learn together!

Preparation -
Go to Project Euler site, and create an account. Then start learning!

* Even if you've never coded before, feel free to stop-in and get started.  We can start you on something basic. You'll want a good text editor (google "sublime" or "textmate" or "notepad++") and have Ruby installed on your machine.

      Feather did a great job. I didn't get a chance to hang out with her much. Next time.

    I'd be willing to get together a couple of hours per week with anybody and pair up to solve some of these algorithms for fun.

    Showed up, but lobby guy won't allow me to head upstairs. Will wait until 7:30 & hope someone can respond.

      Juan I'm really sorry you got locked out! It's kind of weird, too, because others came in much later and were able to get in, so ??

      If that's the case, I wish I knew how they did it. Maybe they had someone's contact number and had someone come escort them up? The guy refused to let me go upstairs unless someone came down to escort me up. Two others that requested the same room # were also refused during the time I was waiting. They left right away instead of waited like I did.

    I'm so sorry Feather but I can't make it tonight. Last minute thing has come up tonight so I won't be able to make it until halfway through. It also doesn't help that I have a flight early tomorrow morning :( So so sorry!

    Is there bike parking in the building, by the way? Not so sure I want to leave mine outside on mid-market.

    Hi Brian! The event is mostly about pair programming so we can try to solve things together. That said, if you've already done a lot of this type of implementation before and you'd like to volunteer your expertise, it would be very welcome. Just try to avoid directly solving someone's problem for them as that would defeat the purpose. I'm sure you know that already, though!

    May 23, 2013

  • Brian H.

    Do you guys need any volunteers for running the event and teaching?

    Hi everyone. I believe Intel would like to sponsor a location this week if there's none set-up yet. Let me know!

      Hey Fanya! Thank you! Does Intel have a SF office?
