Hi everyone,

Len Smith, a prominent Ruby developer in the Philly area, has
graciously agreed to help us lead our first session this Saturday
(10/29). He's going to take us through the fundamentals of web
development such as the difference between platforms and languages,
the basics of building web apps, etc. We're expecting this to be an
interactive discussion so please come with questions.

We've changed locations - we'll know be meeting at Indyhall at 2pm.
It's in Old City at 20 North 3rd Street. You'll need to buzzed in. If
you have any trouble, feel free to give me a call at 610.568.6800.

Depending on how long it takes, we'll get into Ruby. In the meantime,
feel free to give it a try using this great, easy to use site -
http://tryruby.org.

Please respond if you'll be there so we can get a headcount and put
some desks together.

See you then!

Best,


Yasmine

Oops, turns out the group was set not to accept responses.

Eric S. - I got your RSVP.

Anyone else, responding should now work.

Thanks!

As a former coworker of Len's who started working with him after going
to one of his talks about Javascript, I must say you all are very
lucky to get him.

If anyone is interested in stopping down a little early I'll be working
at IndyHall anyways.

And for those who venture out in the rain to join us I brought soft
pretzels.

Introductions: My name is Mike Zornek. I'm a developer doing a mix of
web development with Rails and Mac/iOS development using Obj-C/Cocoa. I
also help run the local Mac/iOS group, CocoaHeads.

I'm kinda busy these days but hope to sit in on a few meetings as I can.

~ Mike

possibly changes anything.

Due to the weather, and the fact I'd be coming from Pottstown area,
I'll unfortunately have to miss today's meeting.

See everyone at the next one. It would be great if you could post
some meeting notes capturing an overview of today's topics, etc.

Thanks, drew

Looks like I won't be able to beat this storm either. I'll see you all next week!

I'll try to take notes and post them on a separate thread afterwards
for those that can't make it!

Thank you greatly, for putting this together, Yasmine.
Thank you, Len, for your advice and for providing your time to thwart
our n00bness, today.

I'll pore through http://rubykoans.com/ / https://github.com/edgecase/ruby_koans
as time provides, and am looking forward to the next meetup.
Personally, I think I'm going to try for biweekly appearances.
