Building OpenCamp (a project management tool) - a learning series

Building OpenCamp (a project management tool) - a learning series

As part of the Google for Entrepreneurs at CoCo program we will have monthly sessions to help you get started building a real Ruby on Rails web application while learning best practices and fundamental web development concepts. Each session in the series will build on the previous session.

Each session will take place in three parts: an introductory lesson, a group coding workshop and an 'advanced topics' presentation.

We’ll aim to provide documentation and tutorials to go along with our sessions, so newcomers can catch up and dive right in.

For more information on our previous sessions and the structure of our events, visit our GitHub schedule page.


Logistics:

Parking: visit the CoCo MSP site for parking infomation. CoCo has a partnership with the Gateway Ramp (grab validations from CoCo Host to receive $5 parking). http://www.minneapolisparking.com/gateway/

Food/Drink: food, beer, soda and water will be provided

Laptop: since there is group hack-session during these events, you should bring a laptop with Ruby on Rails installed! There is a great resource at http://railsapps.github.com/installing-rails.html that can help you get started on your operating system. If for any reason you run into issues with that tutorial and can't get things running, that's okay too. Just bring your laptop to the event and we can help you get set up and be prepared to partner up with someone to follow along.

 

Google Group:

We have a forum available for members to openly discuss anything related to their Rails learning experience, please sign up at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/railsmn.

    The class materials are a little confusing, but not bad. I'm new to programming, and for the most part I was able to follow along with minimal assistance.

    Thanks to the organizers for putting on another great session. I really liked the lecture giving us a little more background on some of the more basic rails commands and utilities. I found it particularly useful and relevant.

    Encouraged to check out Rails, but have no experience yet. Did some programming some time ago and liked it, thinking now this may be a good career change for me.

    If you plan on continuing with RoR development, RubyMine is an outstanding tool. Great license too (one user, multi-machine install allowed as long as only one session active) and available on mac/win/linux.

    FYI, there may be an opportunity to win a copy of RubyMine at this next event, stay tuned! :)
