Columbus Code Jam (August 2013)

An evening  kibitzing and coding.

Columbus Code Jam is a casual meetup to pair on cool projects, to get one-on-one guidance from experienced developers & sys admins, to network, learn, and eat pizza.

Topics we've discussed while hacking:

  1. Git Workflows for moving from single-developers to small teams.
  2. Modelling tree structures in RDBMS tables and the SQL to query them.
  3. High-level architecture of a Rails application.
  4. Computing in the bad-old-days of dial-up.
  5. Twitter Bootstrap
  6. CSS
  7. Getting a rails app from Github running from scratch.
  8. Beginner's Resources - How to learn how to program.
  9. The security implication of using "#!/usr/bin/env ruby" vs "#!/path/to/ruby"
  10. Upgrading a Rails 2 app to Rails 3, and filling the gap in test coverage.
  11. Embedding disqus or facebook comments in a web page.
  12. Which file type to save your HTML as on you mac in orde tot make web servers and browsers recognize it as HTML. [plain text, not rich text]
  13. What are the IT needs of a small not-for-profit foundation looking to create an informational web site for foundation members/subscribers?
  14. How to write Hello World in C++ (When did C++ get namespaces?)
  15. How often does one need to collect data samples to monitor the performance of an application.

Come and add your voice and language to the conversation.
