I only got a little bit of coding done tonight by choice. I think I’m procrastinating on this nested hash forms lab because nested hashes can get confusing. I started it though and just got sidetracked. I need to stay focused. I worked on getting RubyMine installed to see what it’s about and my computer froze. After that, I just gave up on coding tonight. I guess I wasn’t very motivated if that’s all it took lol.
However, I went to a good Ruby meetup tonight and got home late and am just distracted. I went to the Nash.rb 2nd Quarter Social tonight and hung out with people that are in the Ruby community here in Nashville. It was laid back and I just spoke with a bunch of people. A guy named Sam who just moved to Nashville last month and has 3 years of Rails experience yet went to Law school. Chris who graduated from The Iron Yard‘s Front End program in December and is just interested in Ruby. Pete who’s a VP at Takl who are looking for a Senior RoR’s dev. Jon and Jim who are both 10+ year devs who talked about their company but never named it. I was able to look at the Meetup RSVP list and then check LinkedIn to see they work for Groups360. Their company interested me because they’re looking to provide a SaaS product to the hospitality industry. Ty who works for Kindful and is somewhat jealous that he had to get a CS degree (75% of which was useless he said) because boot camps didn’t exist when he started. I don’t know if it’s the nootropics I’m taking or if I consciously made sure of it but I remembered every person’s name I met tonight and was able to say goodnight to them by name as well. This typically doesn’t happen.
