Let's meet at Outright's office in Sunnyvale for a day of Rails learning. More details about the topics to be covered are forthcoming, but here's a tentative schedule:
Friday, March 22, 2013
6pm-9pm: Software Installfest (REQUIRED)
Please plan on being there for 30-90 minutes to get all software installed or updated. You may already have done this before, but we need to make sure you have the latest versions of the software we'll use.
Saturday, March 23, 2013
5pm: After-party for volunteers & attendees
It's necessary to do ALL of the following to complete registration:
1) Confirm that the email address you have listed in Meetup is actually one that you check on a regular basis. (We'll be sending updates, notifications, and to-dos prior to the event, and you'll lose your spot if you fail to respond in a timely manner.)
2) If you have a Mac, download and install Xcode on your laptop before coming to Installfest on Friday, January 25. (Xcode is the software that creates a coding environment for you to tinker with during the workshop.) The Xcode installer is a very large file that may take 2-3 hours to download. Doing it at work on Friday is totally legit; waiting until Friday night at the installfest is not. The installfest instructions for getting Xcode are here: http://installfest.railsbridge.org/installfest/install_xcode.
3) Fill out the registration form that we email to you. It will provide us with details about your operating system, the type and level of programming experience you have, and whether you will need childcare. You must fill out the registration form before 5pm on Monday, March 18 2013, so we can compile the final list of attendees and allow those on the waitlist to take open spots. If you need childcare, please make sure to get the registration form to us as soon as possible so we can work with you to arrange a safe environment for your kids!
