The sentences below were taken directly from the notes I took in my notebook during the Ruby meeting last night (except for the links, I don’t know how to do that in a notebook yet). I obviously need to spend more time learning Ruby on my own.
They have snacks and drinks for everybody in the back of the room. I think they are provided by Cyclone Commerce who is also providing the building. The room we meet in is perfect. It has a high roof and a projector so we can all see what James is doing on his laptop (even if we don’t understand it).
These Goldfish are good. There isn’t much better then Ruby and a cup full of Goldfish.
I need to do more Ruby hacking before the next meeting. Right now I am way too stupid to understand these people.
Look up Structured Blogging plugin.
The meeting was great even though I seem to be way behind many of the people there. I’ll do some studying and hacking before the next meeting and hopefully I’ll understand most of it next month. I caught more of what people were saying then I thought I would so I guess I’m heading in the right direction.
A lot of “these people” felt the same way as you…
I think I get it, but not really.
It’s hard to get a room of gurus and newbies and make them all happy. We chatted about this afterward and it seems like there are some gurus that really want to help people learn, so keep hacking on little tiny things just so you know how to ask questions. I know I don’t get a lot of it, and I don’t know how to ask for help so I’m in the same boat.
