**If the reservations are closed, send a message to Nicole to get you on the list. Security requires an attendee list before the event, but we can individually submit names after that time**

**When you RSVP, PLEASE USE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME - this helps us get you past building security. Thanks!**


Come on out and hack! We'll get together to work on a small Ruby project in pairs or small groups.

All are welcome, including beginners. Bring your laptop with Ruby installed.

This month, in honor of the New Year and all those resolutioners out there, we will be building a Calorie Tracking application. Information on how to get started can be found on the repo:

ChicagoRuby is dedicated to providing a harassment-free space for everyone, regardless, including but not limited to, ancestry, race, age, gender, religion, marital status, national origin, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, or any other protected class. We do not tolerate harassment in any form.

Harassment is unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, veteran status, citizenship status, or any other protected class. Harassment becomes unlawful where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create an environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive.

Anyone who is found to be in violation of these terms will be asked to leave the meetup and will be disallowed from participating in future ChicagoRuby activities.

Please respect our hosts, speakers, and other members of the group at all times.
