Thanks to all who came! You’re awesome for making an effort to nerd out with us.
Want the slides? elasticbackflip.github.com/event_001
Attendees said the event was a great intro to Rails (though more technical than advertised – our bad).
If you want to keep diving into Rails, we’d suggest coding up the Getting Started with Rails Guide. Getting stuck? StackOverflow and the Ruby on Rails Talk google group are great at providing specific answers.
Got suggestions for future events? Give a shout out to @westonplatter.
