Pair Programming Session
Sun, 21 Oct 2012 13:00 - 20:30
|Pair Programming Event Only||
|Pair Programming Event & Dinner||
Registration for this event is closed.
This event will be something I have wanted to try for a while: a pair programming event. I first got the idea after Minato Ruby Kaigi, where they had a "Social Coding" session, which consisted of assigning a partner who you would work on solving a ruby programming challenge with. Working on a programming problem with a developer I hadn't met before was fun and rewarding.
After the main event, will have all you can drink and eat Shabu-Shabu.
Because of the limited space I am only accepting pre-payment for this event.
What to bring
- Laptop with Ruby installed on it
- USB keyboard (Johnny suggests having an extra keyboard helps when pairing)
|1:30||Presentation about pair programming|
|2:00||1st Pair Programming Session|
|4:00||2nd Pair Programming Session|
Will we use Ruby on Rails, or regular Ruby?
We won't use Ruby on Rails, or any related technologies. Instead, we'll solve programming challenges similar to those found at the Ruby Quiz.
The problems I've chosen are open-ended enough that Ruby beginners shouldn't be frustrated by them, while Ruby vetrans can still be challenged.
What version of Ruby is required?
Although it is possible to use an older Ruby version, we will target Ruby 1.9.3.
Are any special tools or libraries required?
The problems are solvable using only Ruby and the standard library.
The problem descriptions will be published via github, so please have git installed.
If you create a github account, you will have the opportunity to share your solutions with others.
I don't know how to install Ruby / git...
Please come to the event at 13:00 and we will try to help you.
