This is a study group and you are welcome to work on anything you would like in our friendly and helpful environment. The Organizers and Core team members of the Ruby Study group Will be present to help you with any Ruby related questions. We currently have several levels in the group - a group project, tutorials, beginner installs and beginner lessons.
