Re: [nycruby] We need people for Hacker School

Hey David, great idea and definitely very very interested. No programming background however. Would this be a huge problem and if so, any way to work around it before school starts...short of going to school to learn how to program that is? :)

Thanks,

E

Hi everyone. I just moved to NYC, and would like to make friends with other programmers and shoot the shit about CoffeeScript for a while, but like everyone else, I can't make it to this thing. I like Dmitry's Hacker Space idea a lot, similar to what the SD Ruby/HN guys do with their Super Happy Dev House. I went to a few, and loved them. Would anyone like to meet up for a beer and talk about organizing something like this?

Hey David,

This course sounds like fun! However, I have the same issue as a lot
of other folks in that I work.
Also, I am probably more interested in more of a hacking space -- a
place where I can come hack on OSS projects and communicate with
fellow developers about ideas, solutions and all that good stuff. From
your description I wasn't quite sure if the Hacker School is like that
but more rigid and with commitment or not.

Even so, I'd love to follow the projects via github or whatever, even
if I cannot make it myself.
