    I use Atom now.

    @Lilyheart , are there more free sites to learn coding besides freecodecamp and code academy? Just curious.

    What does Atom run on? I use Chromebooks on the move and a Linux monster at home

    @davidjcastner is a big Atom fanatic as well and he works in Linux. https://atom.io/

    This is like the first group of devs I've ever been amongst that didn't have like a complete and utter hardon for mac

    Cool. I work with MS SQL Server all day, and am waiting for a copy of their Linux version to drop down the wire for me to try out

    @Lilyheart
    Don't get me wrong @lantech19446 I got my first mac about a month ago (after being diehard anti-mac for decades) and I am over the moon with it. But I believe every tool as a use.

    @lantech19446
    I had mac years ago believe it or not I fell out of love with it the more I used it the less purpose I saw in it.
    I'll be back shortly though I have a computer I need to get back on the line

    mac? BSD is ok, but the UI they've pasted on top of it is too non-standard to be usable. I used them in Comcast for almost a year, and ended up doing a lot of my work at the command prompt. Friendlier!

    @Lilyheart
    xhtml info i found @lantech19446
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    XHTML ? Ha! That was never going to fly just because of the errors stopping rendering - that meant if you made a mistake you couldn't see it. Not good for developers!
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Amen. I get that a strict requirement supports better coding practices... but ugh.
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    Still, what do "we" do between Tuesdays? As a group?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Every other Wednesday we meet in Eagleville, same time.
    So far @davidjcastner has been averaging a presentation on a topic about once a month at MCCC which we've started streaming for non-students.
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    ok. So what kind of subjects do you get (want) to see presentations on?
    And, once one is logged in to FCC, what then?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    If you are on chat.montcode.com there is a video over there <--- from our very first online chat. A bulk of that presentation can be found at http://welcome.montcode.com
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    ok. Looking at three things at once here - sorry!
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    If you don't feel like listening to me talk (I know I wouldn't!) you can just jump into FCC challenges in where ever interests you.
    As far as presentations, David and I both have lists of topics that have been asked for. If there is something you want to specfically discuss, you can start a private discussion here on gitter, or facebook or email montcode@gmail.com
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    And yes, of course I'd like to listen to you talk!
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    If days were years, MontCode would be able to officially drink today!
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    Lol
    Lily thats the last time i tried to build a webpage w3c was offering a free school on xhtml css and something else wasnt js but i forget what it was
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    LOL <hic> ... Jonathan saw, I think, a bit of my history on LinkedIn. I actually started coding way back in my last two years in High school, when we were taught FORTRAN, and given coding sheets to write programs on!
    (Sorry! I'll clear up the spiders, I promise!)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Ha. Mine was probably learning BASIC that I had on my 8088. So, a few years later, but not as many as you might think.
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    1972! Not that many, as you say!
    What do people ask to be told about? All flashy things on the web - right?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Intro to HTML and CSS was the last presentation.
    Node.js is coming up on the 23rd.
    On the docket off the top of my head is python, arduino and Microsoft Visual Studio.
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    Neat. If anyone wants to learn SQL of any sort, I'm up for that. Python I'm learning myself
    Danielle Butler
    @dbutler22
    Sounds good, and we can stream these on YT?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I know the list is bigger than that. I'll add you to it. Shoot me an email at montcode@gmail.com if you get a moment.
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    VS is just a tool, really, and I've found that I just google to see if it'll do what I want.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @dbutler22 yup! The HTML and CSS one was streamed.
    We are editing the video into two videos to be published on the youtube channel.
    Danielle Butler
    @dbutler22
    Cool. Thanks. I can't make the meetings either.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart

    @dcpking_twitter
    Done, Lily
    Lily Romano
