I attended this event as a student and learned so much! So I just want to thank all you fabulous volunteers who organized, taught and assisted. Thank you!

I did a clean Ubuntu (10.04.4 LTS) install today, and also managed to get through the Railsbridge Installfest from start to finish, partly by merging stuff from the current published version, with the updated draft I got a few weeks ago from Joe Jackson, and throwing in a few things I learned on my first RoR job this past week. I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and get at least the Ubuntu 10 InstallFest working and stable before 7/20. I'm hoping I'll get a few raised hands to work along with me.

A quick shout-out to Joe Jackson for pointing me to wubi.org, for getting a really simple dual-boot to Ubuntu (10.4) from my Windows machine. I'm still learning Linux basics, and need to tweak my bootup, menus, aliases, etc, but yesterday I completed my first (short) week at my first paid RoR gig, so I have a pretty complete RoR stack running from a thumb drive. Next step is to fork the railsbridge/docs repo and start hacking the docs for the Installfest and Workshop. Obstacle removed!
