West-Side Study Group
What we are currently reading: The Ruby Way: Solutions and Techniques in Ruby Programming By Hal Fulton, starting an RSPEC BOOK and finishing the HARTL BOOK PAIR UP AND LEARN TOGETHER What we are currently reading: The Ruby Way: Solutions and Techniques in Ruby Programming By Hal Fulton, starting an RSPEC BOOK and finishing the HARTL BOOK Heralded as a great "how-to" book for effective Ruby programming with over 400+ examples that answer the question: "How do I do this in Ruby?" We'll be going back and forth between the book, the Ruby Standard Library and our own resources. ** IF you have not read the Chapter we will accommodate to where everyone is at the moment. Currently we're going over the RSPEC + CAPYBARA RSPEC - https://www.devmynd.com/blog/setting-up-rspec-and-capybara-in-rails-5-for-testing/ (http://pragprog.com/titles/achbd/the-rspec-book) //////////=====//////////===== //////////===== Also reading M. Hartl's Book (https://www.railstutorial.org/book): RUBY ON RAILS TUTORIAL (RAILS 5) Try reading up to Chapter 10-11 //////////=====//////////===== //////////===== Goals: Practice.... until its 2nd nature. Each week, based on our momentum we'll surge forward or take our time to practice and truly understand to the core. Most likely we'll be working on one chapter every 2 weeks, giving all of us time to read, practice and master the concepts. What to Expect & How to Prep - Read the chapter we're working before our meetup! - If you've already read the book, come mentor and pair. It's priceless. - Be ready to ask questions or share insights. - Highly encouraged to purchase the book. - Practice with Exercism.io (http://exercism.io/), Repl.it (https://repl.it/languages/ruby) or Cloud9 (https://c9.io/). All are free. All are welcome and at every level. We try to steward the night toward the the right level to keep everyone engaged and practicing. //////////=====//////////===== //////////===== FYI this is the SAME MEETUP, DIFFERENT URL: West-side Rails Study Group http://www.meetup.com/Westside-Rails-Study-Group/ Los Angeles Women's Ruby on Rails Group http://www.meetup.com/Los-Angeles-Womens-Ruby-on-Rails-Group/ Let's remember that we're not all at the same level. It's highly encouraged for senior programmers to come and mentor. Even it its been only a few years, its truly priceless to someone who is brand new to programming. //////////=====//////////===== //////////===== Currently looking for help with this group!

What we're about

Welcome to the Los Angeles Ruby/Rails Meetup Group. This is a thriving developers community through the efforts of everyone involved. Members generally refer to this group as "LA Ruby". We also have postings where we are referred to as "laruby" and even "la-ruby".

The Los Angeles Ruby/Rails Meetup Group is for anyone interested in learning or sharing experiences with "Ruby" or "Ruby on Rails".

We meet the second Thursday of each month. The location of the Meetup depends on who is sponsoring. We attempt to rotate between West-side and Northeast side.

Speaker Proposals: If you have a pertinent subject matter that you'd like to present to the group at an upcoming meetup - please contact myself (claudio) - with a short bio and description of your presentation.

Membership: This is a PRIVATE organization. We have the right to deny anyone membership. If you wish to join, you must fill out the questionnaire truthfully and completely. Please tell us both your FIRST AND LAST NAME. If you do not supply your full name - you will be asked to supply a link to your LinkedIn profile.

IF IT IS YOUR INTENTION TO JOIN JUST TO RECRUIT DEVELOPERS: Don't bother. We will not allow you access.
