Hi Everyone,
Sunday JS studygroup starts at 6pm US Pacific time every week, same time, same place (link below) until further notice. So I won't be posting weekly reminders. I'm gonna ask OG Odin core member Afshin to host couple sessions end of April when I'll be away. So look for that.
Please bring your javascript / web development questions and we'll see if we can figure it out together. Everyone welcome, esp. beginners.

Does anyone think it's time for a nice JS popup for the student solutions?  Who coordinates working The Odin Project site nowadays?

I think you can just submit updates to their github?  They have a section on getting involved.  I say go for it :)

Hey guys, Sorry i haven't been able to jump on to the study group on Sunday. I'm a total newbie here and am struggling at the google homepage assignment. There are so many ways to make the nav bar how do you know which one to use? I know this may be simple for some but I'm tearing my hair out! (maybe I'm not meant to be a developer :()

I agree with Margie... there is always many different ways you can do the same thing. It may be frustrating at first, not getting things right, but in that struggle, you end up learning more and better than just reading about it. When ever you hit a road block, take a break and come back, and just keep at it until you get it. Don't give up!. Once you find the solution, its a great feeling!

Good folks, I started and did a run with a Rails studygroup going through the Odin curriculum.  It was great;  I think some of you folks working through the curriculum right now should adopt it and use it further your studies. Let me know.

If anyone's going through the Rails section, I have run into a problem in chapter 8  at listing 8.17.  

This stack overflow question describes a similar problem to mine and offers a fix,  but I've done what is suggested and that didn't help.  

I have not deployed this to heroku yet, I'm having the problem in Cloud 9. 

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18953101/michael-hartl-rails-tutorial-chapter-8-sign-out-not-working-in-heroku

Basically bootstrap.js doesn't seem to be loading so that the dropdown will work.  Everything was working up to this point and I've checked my code for obvious errors.  Any ideas?

Fantastic Javascript Resource: For those needing a better grasp of the Javascript fundamentals, this book is great. It provides a website including tutorials for every chapter of the book. Great way to solidify concepts.

Hello! Anyone else working on the Ruby on Rails project in web dev 101? Haven't worked with anyone else before, but it'd be nice to be able to throw around ideas with other people :-)

Has anyone seen this book?  I heard the author on the 5by5 Rails podcast and I was impressed with what he had to say.  
You're on your second Rails tutorial, and you feel like flipping a table. Writing a Rails app is supposed to be easy, right? But even if you've seen all the pieces, you don't know how they fit together. Everywhere you look there's another DSL you have to learn. When you ask for help, ...

Hi Everyone,
I'm starting a new weekly JavaScript studygroup starting Sunday Mar 1 at 6pm Pacific time. I'm an experienced beginner, having studied web dev and js for about a year now. I'm hoping to be the type of resource that I wish I had when I started to learn coding. I envisage this group as a beginner-friendly open forum where people throw up any js questions they may have to help them get unstuck. I think a timely blog post by Erik seems like a good way to start the discussion. The Beginner’s Dilemma: http://www.vikingcodeschool.com/posts/the-beginner-s-dilemma-your-first-100-hours-of-code

Here's the link to Sunday's google hangout.

We should be able to use that link permanently.
