Hey, Philip. This is to confirm that the list test worked, and that your
story is kinda familiar-most of what I know is self-taught, too. I graduated
from Univ of California Davis with a Bachelor of Arts in International
Relations. (Want me to explain why nations go to war? ;-) )
I can't make it to the first meeting, but I'll try to make successive ones.
I have a number of good friends who are neck-deep in the Rails community, so
if we run into issues we can't answer, I'm happy to forward them on for what
I would hope would be an authoritative answer.
Most of those same friends just use a text editor rather than an IDE, and I
would suggest in the beginning to just use localhost, and worry about
deploying to a web host later. Easier setup, easier to bounce the server
when necessary, and closer to what developers do in the real world anyway.

Subject: [ror.book.club] List test message & intro
This is a test of the list as well as my intro.
I am a web developer who has experience with a variety of languages and
java, and c#, but I don't have experience with creating web applications.
I studied business/IS at UW, but the IS program barely touched on any
technical content. My technical knowledge is largely self-taught.
Have been in Seattle for 5 years-- love the city for its weather, music
scene, cuisine, and people. Am interested in getting more involved in the
Tech Startup community and figured this was a decent way to meet like-minded
folks who were interested in network benefits of group-learning.
If anyone else wants to introduce themselves, see if you can do it by
replying to this message.
The plan is still on to meet at Cafe Racer on Thursday-- 7pm. We'll be going
over the first chapter-- discussing IDEs and probably the merits of
developing on local host or web host. Bring the laptop. It'll be casual. Bar
See ya thursday.
