Thanks to all who braved the weather to come out to West End Ruby last night. It was great to see some new faces. We voted on a Ruby Quiz code challenge to discuss next month and, by 1 vote, the Sokoban challenge is what we decided to discuss next month.
Anyone who would like to participate is more than welcome, although there will probably be a cap of 20-ish attendees. The idea is to work on the quiz between now and the meeting, then tell us how it went. The rules for sharing will be very simple: in a 5-minute lightning talk format, show your code, tell us about your approach and how it led to your solution. Or, if you went astray, tell us about that. We will all clap when you're done presenting, no exceptions. The main idea here is to learn and share in a respectful, kind, encouraging environment. To that end, helpful feedback often comes in the form of questions: "Did you think about ...?", etc.
The meeting will be August 18, location and time TBD.
We also have a #westendruby channel in the Triangle Devs Slack room. If you have questions, post there, or reply to this thread. If you're not already in Triangle Devs Slack room and you live in the Triangle area, email me directly if you'd like to join us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
