Subject: [ddj] Rubyjournos group forming
A bunch of us are kicking off an online group-learning experience for reporters interested in the basics of Ruby. The group includes freelancers alongside journalists from The Baltimore Sun, Computer World and The Associated Press, among others. It's really a nice mix so far. Heavy inspirational credit goes to Chris Schnaars' PythonJournos sessions a year or two ago.
Membership is free, and we're looking to use instructional material that's short, accessible and cheap. With only a half-dozen chapters, Jump Start Rails<https://email.tribune.com/owa/redir.aspx?C=2ba1fe2356404328b74b53b04944f966&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.amazon.com%2fgp%2foffer-listing%2f0987467425%2fref%3dtmm_pap_new_olp_sr%3fie%3dUTF8%26condition%3dnew%26sr%3d8-1%26qid%3d1384343198> is a leading contender at the moment. Please join us by signing up here:
We'll probably be starting the first section by December 2, with roughly a section per week from there until mid-January. I hope this is of interest to some folks on here.
