[LRUG] May Meeting - Specifics
pardel at gmail.com
Wed May 2 16:29:16 PDT 2007
Please add my name to the end of the list of mentors. I was a bit
reluctant to put my name forward as I do not work full time with
Ruby/RoR (yet) but I'll do my best.
BTW, for beginners I can recommend the sitepoint book
(http://www.sitepoint.com/books/rails1/). I'm half way through it and,
even with some mistakes/things not explained properly, it is still a
good and easy to read/browse book.
