Time to give back to the community...

OK, everybody, it is time for us to give back to the Ruby/Rails community that has made many of us a enjoyable and profitable life....

We at Socialwhirled have decided to sponsor and host a RailsBridge event in Phoenix (http://railsbridge.org/) the 18th and 19th of September.

From their site:

We teach people to code because we believe that the people making technology should accurately reflect the diversity of those using it.

We want to push for all kinds of diversity in tech: gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, and class. Women were the first population we focused on, but aren't the last.

We value acceptance, enthusiasm, and hard work. The RailsBridge community thrives on optimism and a love for making great things.

What's a RailsBridge Workshop?

Our most well-known efforts are free weekend workshops where women learn Ruby on Rails from volunteers. The students at our workshops range from folks who are completely new to programming to QA engineers and professional developers who want to learn Rails. During the Installfest (usually on a Friday evening), we get students' laptops setup with the requisite technologies. The next day, we break into small group based on experience level and build a web app! (When we aren't teaching Ruby and Rails, we teach HTML & CSS.)

Here is what we need:

Volunteers to assist in teaching as well as TA'ing.  I think we will need about 8 people that can teach a class using their curriculum and assistants to help attendees that are stuck.

Attendees to attend.  Spread the word to friends, strangers, social media, etc...

I will post the links as soon as I have them setup.  All social media should use the #railsbridge and #railsbridgeaz hashtags.

Most of us learned form others so lets return the favor.

Questions, comments, suggestions, complaints, want to volunteer, email me at broberts-I9UL3WGaFBqsL+LrcZT0cgC/G2K4zDHf@public.gmane.org

MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT: Tuesday, August 19th <at> 6:30pm

We are on for our monthly meeting on all things Ruby at SocialWhirled. 

Elio Grieco on Disaster Recovery

This talk will cover basic disaster recovery concepts to help ensure that attendees understand the value of their data, where to store it, and how to get it back after equipment failures, natural disasters and various attack scenarios. Ruby and Ruby on Rails developers and admins need to be aware of the DevOps work required to be ready for catastrophic system failures and data loss.   -

Next meeting idea

Just want to throw this out there.  How about the next meetup we do not have any presenters?  I was thinking of more of a meet and greet and open hack. 

Let's everybody introduce ourselves and talk for a minute about what we do.  

Then we can just open the floor to anybody with questions.  Have a problem, come up front, plug in and show us what you are trying to do.

Other than that we mingle, drink and eat ;)

Thoughts?

In memoriam of Chris Stiffler

Tragedy hit close to home for me on two fronts in the past week with the passing of Chris Stiffler. His children attend the same school as my daughter and I spent time with him over at Gangplank. While working on a device to help people deal with asthma attacks he was struck by a massive asthma attack which took his life. Whether you consider this real irony or Alanis Morrisette irony it is still tragic. In strange keeping with his life my last memory of him is from a child's birthday party where I watched him give Diet Coke to his daughter and then seeing her buzz around like, well, a child with caffeine in her system.

Jennifer Lindley at Gangplank is collecting photos for his memorial service (Jennifer-o8HNRQUsbJaxWu5DVSXDxmD2FQJk+8+b@public.gmane.org) which is on Friday from 6 - 9 at Legacy Funeral Home (1374 N Arizona Ave, Chandler, AZ 85225).

The school where our children attend is collecting meals to deliver to his family. If you wish to help out the Stiffler family with meals, please contact Dawn Farley at 480.276.3663.

And finally there is a site to offer monetary help as well: https://www.youcaring.com/chrisstiffler. Unfortunately he did not have life insurance so his passing will be even harder for him.

Sorry for the bummer of a message but thank you for anything you are able to provide. Here is the site for his company if you are interested: http://www.vicinityhealth.com/

Setting up Ruby on Rails

Hello all,

So I have recently set out to become a coding guru, but like all long, tedious journeys, it must begin with the first steps. 

I decided to start with Ruby on Rails, following closely along the Ruby on Rails 4 Essential Training with Kevin Skoglund on Lynda.com (week-long free trial). I have a new-ish Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 and a 64 bit system. I have Ruby 2.0.0-p481 (x64) and DevKit-mingw64-32-4.7.2-20130224-1151-sfx.exe, both downloaded from rubyinstaller.org (links provided). I am using MySQL version 5.6.19, downloaded from "http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/5.6.html." I downloaded Apache 2 successfully, but haven't a clue how to incorporate it because I am stuck when linking Ruby to MySQL through the MySQL2 gem. My bundle gem has been acting up as well, but solving this mystery tops my to-do list right now.

Whenever I try a new solution recommended by one of the seemingly endless number of websites I have scoured, it spits out something very similar to this.

C:\Users\Jack Poupore>gem install mysql2 **this is only one (the most basic) input that I tried**
Temporarily enhancing PATH to include DevKit...
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
ERROR:  Error installing mysql2:

sql2-0.3.16/gem_make.out


I have been stuck on this issue for over two days. I just want to get this fucking thing installed so I can actually do something with the programs. I have tried every combination of 32 and 64 bit versions of the above listed programs, and currently the 32 bit uniform combination of these is the only one that got me this far without issues--the rest resulted in even more problems that I was somehow able to overcome.

Apart from this inquiry, what are some other useful tools and resources that I can use to master this subject?

Thank you so much, and I look forward to connecting and collaborating with many of you, both now and in the future. 

Jack
