Hi, Noisebridge! We added a new class at  7pm on January 21, 2014

Catch Up Day: An Introduction to Rails Programming

This is an opportunity for new students to get a jumpstart on learning the Rails framework, following along with the basics of the Getting Started Guide (links in description).

The goal of the class is to introduce the basic ideas of the Rails framework, presenting a distilled summary of the [Getting Started Guide](http://guides.rubyonrails.org/getting_started.html). You are welcome to read [the course material](http://sameer.siruguri.net/railsschool-rails/course_content/) ahead of the class; it also has pointers to more advanced topics that you can start exploring on your own if you like.

## Pre-Requisites

We will assume no familiarity with the Rails framework, but will assume you understand programming concepts like data and object-oriented programming, and that you are comfortable with Ruby concepts and syntax. This material is covered in [our Ruby Beginners Level 1 class](http://siruguri.net/courses/railsschool-ruby-beginner-level2/) and we recommend you read that before this class.

The code we'll discuss is [also available on Github](http://www.github.com/siruguri/railsschool-catchup-rails).

## Installing Ruby and Rails

Before class, install Ruby and Rails on your system, getting as far as you can following these instructions:

* [How should I prepare for my first Ruby lesson?](http://www.railsschool.org/faq#How_should_I_prepare_for_my_first_Ruby_lesson)
* [How should I prepare for my first Rails lesson?](http://www.railsschool.org/faq#How_should_I_prepare_for_my_first_Rails_lesson)

The course material also summarizes these steps. We will try to help you out with any installation problems you have, if it doesn't significantly slow down class.

If you have any questions about the material or suggestions for what to cover in the class, feel free to email us at team [at] railsschool.org before the class.
