Come participate in our Mentor-Me program, where both experts and newbies come together to pair and level up. Find your mentor this year or become one - all are encouraged to join and help each other.

Pragmatic Programmers suggest learning a new language every year. We're Rubyists but Ruby and RoRails is always working within a spectrum of many other languages. We encourage you to come find your pair to work with.

If your brand new, start here:
1. ( - An interactive application to see immediate results.
2. Rails for Zombies ( - When you just want to absorb.
3. Learn Ruby the Hard Way ( - Great place to start. ( a documented repo here ( )
4. Michael Hartl Ruby on Rails Tutorial ( - Another Great place to start.

For More Advanced:
Each week we'll be reading a chapter of a chosen book,
and or watching a screen cast, then working together to build an application.

Our Weekly Schedule:

Find us at Cynthia Kisner's Pasadena Rails Study Group in the IMSS Building, Caltech ( at 7pm. We've begun reading the book Crafting Rails 4 Applications (

THURSDAY: 6:30 PM - We're for the group of laptops in the patio
Find us at Panera Bread ( every Thursday unless there's meeting conflict.
We meet at 6:30 - 10:pm in the patio or inside near the back of the restaurant.

If you are brandy new to Ruby or Ruby on Rails; we will help you get up to speed if you are willing to put in the time. If you are more advanced; become a mentor and help others learn while having a dedicated study night.

We're always looking for speakers, mentors and general help. Every other month, we'll plan a get together and showcase our work, discuss advanced topics and network with other programmers.

If you'd like to give a demo, or are willing to share with a lighting talk, reach out!
