Just wanted to say Hi

Just wanted to say Hi

Hello,

I just joined the mailing list and thought I should say hi. A few years ago
I became interested in Ruby. I discovered _why and shooes in that period
and was really excited. Lo and behold it's a few years later, I have not
learned Ruby yet. But I have actually started now.

So I am no help in helping with coding the project. But I am enthusiastic
and would like to contribute in any other fashion you may need.

To summarize, i'm just tagging along to learn and see where shooes goes.

Kindest regards,
Tim Apple

Hi Tim,

greetings from me as well:)

I am also in the process of learning Ruby for some time now. I was blown
away when I discovered the power of Shoes:)

If you're just starting with Ruby I'd recommend code academy
(http://www.codecademy.com/tracks/ruby) and code school
(https://www.codeschool.com) as possible interactive learning resources.

While code academy is free and offers a good starting point, code school
is subscription based but offers much more content. I am enrolled in
both and find them really useful. But it might be best to start of with
code academy as you get through all the basics.

And of course there are also the rubylearning.com and rubylearning.org.

For me the best way to learn was just to start coding my own real
projects, not just some test ones.

As far as the awesome Shoes goes the manuals are a great resource and
the help of the community here at the mailing list is priceless.

love shoes!
kind regards

I think that new aavalam.github.com blog is the place for it right now.

Hi Tim,

Welcome to Shoes! You certainly don't have to be a coder to help with
open source. From what I've seen the Shoes people are a friendly bunch
and I'm sure you'll find you're way around.

I'm quite new here myself and been also meaning to introduce myself so
allow me to grab this opportunity :)

I still remember well when _why announced Hackety Hack, and I loved it
from the start. I grew up playing with Basic on Commodore 64 and MSX
and I totally share his sentiment that it's not as easy as it used to
be for kids to just playfully discover programming. It's great to see
that some years later this project is still alive and steadily making
progress.

Then some time ago there was a blog post about how "Hackety Hack is
just crap" or something along those lines, and it just seemed unfair
and not constructive, and I made a mental note to see if I could be of
any help. I learned that HH is basically blocked on getting a stable
release of Shoes 4, so I had a look at the open issues. One patch in
so far but hopefully more to come :)

Shoes on!
Arne

Hi Tim,

Wow, welcome to Shoes!

What platform are you using? Please install Shoes 4 and run samples and let
us know they work well or not on your platform. That'll be very helpful for
us. ;-)

Let's have fun with Shoes,
ashbb
