Also, just to be clear. For the NYTM tickets email me directly. Not the mailing list.

Good luck!

Ahoy Swabbies!

Happy Monday! It's a brand new week so you know I have to hook you up with the details on some interesting events going on in NYC over the next couple of weeks. So, let's get to it.

General Assembly is having a Programming in Music meet up that looks pretty interesting and there is also a pretty cool meetup on binding data to the DOM with D3.js that you probably want to check out. The monthly New York Tech Meetup is back and we're giving away 2 free tickets. All you have to do is reply to this email with "NYTM Tickets" in the header to claim your tix. I'll be selecting two lucky Swabbies at random.

Also, just a reminder that our free Ruby on Rails workshop for women in partnership with Railsbridge is in two weeks. We are currently at full capacity in terms of space for students but are still open to accepting volunteers. Register here or reach out to Felicia at felicia.ogarro(at) for more info.

Featured Announcements

Thinkful Announces Ruby on Rails Course
Thinkful is excited to offer $100 off to our friends at CodeCrew for our new Ruby on Rails course. The online course helps you build real apps from scratch working with a mentor. In weekly one-on-one sessions, you'll learn best practices and improve your code, building apps based on your own ideas by the end of the course. With an optional extension on Test-Driven Development for those looking to work as developers, the course is open to beginners and those with experience. You can learn more about the course here:

Rails Bridge x Code Crew Free Ruby on Rails Workshop for Women
Railsbridge NYC and Code Crew are happy to announce a free two-day workshop. The workshop is for women who want to learn and/or get better at Ruby on Rails in a friendly and warm environment.  

The focus will be on developing functional web apps and programming in Ruby. All experience levels are welcomed and you can find the curriculum materials here. Below are details for the event.

***We are currently at full capacity but still have room for volunteers to teach and TA session. Contact Felicia at felica.ogarro(at) for more info*****


6:00 - 9:00pm Friday, November 8th 

Friday night will be the Installfest to make sure that your machine is ready to ride come Saturday. We will make sure Ruby and Rails is installed and your development environment is sufficient for you to build your first application.


9:00am - 5:00pm Saturday, November 9th 

In this workshop, we'll take you through the steps to build a web application. We'll have different classes depending on experience level. Total novices can start with an Intro to Programming, while experienced programmers can jump right into Ruby and Rails. By the end of the workshop, you'll have an application on the internet that connects to a database and reads and writes information.

Student Checklist:

Required to attend both days of the session

Each participant needs to bring their own laptop.

If you have a Mac, download and install Xcode on your laptop before coming to Installfest on Friday. (Xcode is the software that creates a coding environment for you to tinker with during the workshop.) 

Xcode is a very large file that takes 2-3 hours to download and cannot be done at the Installfest.

Download the version of RailsInstaller that is right for your machine. This is not as download-intensive as Xcode, but it is still wise to download ahead of the Installfest on Friday.

Rails Stars is a short-form course that teaches the basics of web development using Ruby on Rails. This course is perfect for people that are learning how to code to launch their startup idea or for those that want an introduction to web development to prepare for more intensive study. More information can be found here.

Collaborative Coding - each and every Sunday we meet at Alley NYC to crank out some code. Come join some of the coolest people that are learning how to code in NYC.

Intro to Computer Science and Programming Study Group - learn the basics of Computer Science and programming using the Python programming language. This study group meets every other week.

How to Learn JavaScript Properly Study Group - JavaScript is sexy and we know that that's why we put together a study group based on Richard Bovell's study guide.

Ruby on Rails Tutorial Study Group - learn Ruby on Rails by going through Michael Hartl's famed book. Meets every other Sunday at Alley at 3:30pm.

Programming Languages Study Group - Coursera’s Programming Languages course starts soon and a bunch of Swabbies have decided to organize a study group to go through the course together.  Shoutout to Alex Oviedo, Bianca Rodrigues and the Fullstack Academy for making this happen!


Code Crew Roadmap for Noobs - since so many n00bs out there have no idea where to start when learning how to code (we know because we were there not too long ago) we put together this suggested roadmap to help you get started. Enjoy!

Special thanks to our sponsors at Fullstack Academy and Startup Institute for hosting our Programming Languages and Intro to Computer Science study groups. In addition, a big thank you goes out to Thinkful for offering us a discount on their new Ruby on Rails course.

Until next time.
