Event Details


LVL1 and Louisville Digital Association are proud to present the next Idea to Execution Workshop hosted at LVL1 this Thursday 5/12 at 6:30pm.

The topic this time is Ruby on Rails AKA RoR. 

In keeping with the collaborative nature of the Idea to Execution workshops, the workshop opens with a short talk that focuses on making the business case for employing web development using RoR and best practices (i.e., don't build without a market). The latter portion, attendees get their hands dirty working on RoR code.


  • 6:30pm - Meet and greet, RoR setup help. 
  • 7:00pm - RoR case lesson presentation
  • 7:30pm - Ruby on Rails Workshop led by Ernie Miller

Be sure to grab your ticket and get your thinking dev caps on, as seating is limited!

Workshop Details:
For this workshop, please bring a laptop with the following setup done ahead of time:

Installed and working Ruby 1.9.2

For Mac/*nix, I recommend RVM: http://beginrescueend.com/rvm/install/

Installed latest stable Rails version (3.0.7 as of this writing): "gem install rails"

Run: gem install sqlite3
Windows users will have to download a dll file and stick it in the Ruby bin directory.

Helpful but not required: Work through the initial 15-minute Ruby tutorial at http://tryruby.org (can be done in your browser, and will help with some basic Ruby fundamentals so that we can focus more on building our application than syntax nuances.)







Be sure to check out  the details on LVL1's hackerspace location at 814 East Broadway.
