Hello Everyone,

I wanted to extend an open invitation to attend the first(?) OSU Code Jam. Organized by several web developers on campus, we’ll be hacking on some code in Ruby primarily but if you prefer a different language come and teach us. We’ve got a project in mind to start but we’ll always be open to working other code. It’s an hour of hacking so bring your laptop and let’s have some fun. Interested in learning more about Ruby? Show up and we’ll be glad to help. Everyone is welcome.

When: Thursday, February 2nd, 2012
Time: 4:00pm until around 5pm
Where: 4187 Smith Lab
Why: Because you want to hack on some code and meet some other developers on campus

When revisited: We’re tentatively scheduling Code Jams for the first 3 Thursdays of the month.

Questions can be directed to paul.cook [at]

Hope to see you all there.

Another Happy Tuesday to you all! And Happy Valentines day!

It may be snowing out, causing traffic headaches but it will be warm inside this Thursday at 4:00pm in 4187 Smith Lab as we gather once again for an OSU Code Jam. Last week a group started working on a scheduling project and another group learned some Ruby by completing a Ruby Quiz. This week we'll continue with more of same. We'll also walk through setting up a Ruby/Ruby on Rails dev environment on your laptop. Geared more for OS X but we'll do our best to help if you have a Windows machine.

Come out and meet some other OSU developers and students. Hack on some code. Learn. Lurk. You choose.

See you Thursday!
