Hi, Noisebridge! We added a new class at  7pm on March 18, 2014

Ruby and Programming Beginners Class (Level 1)

This lesson introduces programming and Ruby to beginners, building on simple concepts and culminating in a basic understanding of object-oriented programming in Ruby.

## Pre-requisites

It will help you immensely to have installed Ruby on your machine. The best way to do this on a Windows machine is to use [RailsInstaller](http://railsinstaller.org/), and on a Mac OSX machine is to use [RVM](http://rvm.io/) (though if you're not doing serious Ruby or Rails development yet, you can use RailsInstaller on the Mac too.) Note that RailsInstaller installs Ruby 1.9, but for the purpose of this class, that's good enough. 

Please contact the instructors via team [at] railsschool.org if you are having trouble using either of these. In general, a clean install is recommended if you run into trouble; on Windows, if you already have Cygwin Ruby installed, it's seriously recommended that you uninstall it.

## Course Material

The course material that will covered is available online - the lecture material is [available in HTML form](http://sameer.siruguri.net/courses/railsschool-ruby-beginner-level1/), and this material as well as the code we'll walk through is available on [Github](https://github.com/siruguri/railsschool-catchup-ruby).
