GIANT ROBOTS SMASHING INTO OTHER GIANT ROBOTS

Written by thoughtbot

Bring your laptop, get started with Ruby at Tuesday's Boston.rb meetup

Well, howdy there!

Interested in Ruby?

Have you been...

...interested in building web application, but aren't sure where to start? We've all been beginners once, so let us lend a hand!

...seeking a technical co-founder, but finding it difficult? Investing the time to learn programming will do wonders. You'll be better equipped to sniff out quality developers, and quite possibly knock out a prototype on your own.

...teaching yourself Ruby or self-studying on Rails and running into questions? Rubber Ducking can help, but it's not nearly as much fun as meeting your fellow Boston Rubyists.

...programming Ruby or Rails for a little while (or a long while) and are looking to help teach and welcome new folks to the community?

Let's meet up!

Drop by the thoughtbot office this Tuesday, October 4, at 7pm. We'll be hosting a structured session on getting your laptop set up for Ruby development. We'll be following the process described here and be available for debugging:

Please RSVP to the event so we know how much food and how many drinks to get. We're happy to field questions ahead of time in the comments below, or you can sign up for the Boston Ruby mailing list, mosey over to the email thread for this meetup, and say hello!
