North West Ruby User Group

The Ruby Code Challenge

Thursday 19th March 6:30pm at Federation House

We’re going to be running a Ruby coding challenge this month at Federation House. Participation isn’t required but you’ll definitely get the most out of the session if you take part.

How to take part

To participate, you’ll need to bring a laptop with Ruby installed (either 1.9 or 2.0 as 2.1/2.2 are not fully supported by the challenge); and a copy of the Bundler gem. If you don’t have a laptop but still want to take part, email Tekin and we’ll try and facilitate something.

You’ll also need some understanding of Ruby, although folk will be on hand to give help and guidance if you have problems getting going.

If you need any help getting Ruby/Bundler set up on your laptop, please come at 6:30pm and someone will be on hand to help you get set up.

Also do try and make sure your laptop is fully charged as there won’t be enough power sockets for everyone.

The session will run for around 2 hours from 7pm, plus some wrap up time. You should aim to arrive and get settled before 7pm so that we can hit the ground running.

  • 6:30pm - Doors open and installation/setup
  • 7:00-9:00pm - Coding Challenge
  • 9:30pm - To the pub for post-event socialising
