PUPPET ALL THE THINGS!

I don't know if you missed it, however in the first Ruby tutorial we encourage use of nitrous.io - looking at it, it maybe should be highlighted more

@barisbalic
I think for Nodebots events we're going to create some liveboot USB sticks
Despo Pentara
@despo
@barisbalic haha.

@barisbalic
But that's not 40 people!
Despo Pentara
@despo
Oh.. that might be an idea, however, money, time, resources...
nitrous is just ready to use and we do tend to have descent internet
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Sure, I'm a nitrous advocate too

@despo
It saves people from being frustrated and having someone else doing things on their machine for an hour or more. Also, I dont think having Ruby setup is essential to get started; maybe after getting a feel for it, they will opt for doing more JS instead - or Python. You never know.
If anyone has any suggestions on other alternatives, we can also link/mention those.

@barisbalic Just meant an IRC channel as a better place to talk about the work stuff

Hello baris

@barisbalic
Hi :)

@andrewmcdonough
Was thinking of dropping along
The degree symbol could cause issues on ruby 1.9.x
likely to cause encoding issues. not sure if everybody is on ruby 2
assuming this is the tutorial for this evening?
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
@andrewmcdonough that was the one from the last session, but people can still choose to do it at the next
(meaning tonight)
Andrew McDonough
@andrewmcdonough
ok cool. was going to send a PR with ° changed to the word 'degrees', but if it wasn't much of an issue last week, I'll leave it
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
I don't believe it was but a PR would be a good way to start a discussion on it
And make people aware there could be a problem in different rubies.
Andrew McDonough
@andrewmcdonough
ok done codebar/tutorials#76
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
it was the right thing to do :+1:, worst case scenario is that someone gives you feedback that it's not a big enough problem and you've done your duty
Andrew McDonough
@andrewmcdonough
:smile:
Despo Pentara
@despo
@andrewmcdonough thanks for your PRs. I still need to push the tutorial for tonight, but i don't think we have any students quite there yet.
Andrew McDonough
@andrewmcdonough
no worries.

@despo
hey all, we've had a wave of cancellations this morning - bad weather I'm assumming - so it anyone wants to give it a miss today, its not a problem. You are all still welcome to attend of course :smile:
Despo Pentara
@despo
Thanks to all who helped out last night :heart:
Despo Pentara
@despo
oh and thanks to @swathik now you can all edit your Profiles when you log in through the app 🙅
also if anyone is having to create a new account to login with github, let me know. I can update your email or merge the dup account.
(to login to codebar.io)
makes me wonder if we should try naming the tutorials better, maybe using tags for different topics they cover
