Typically, I never get my hopes up when I am waitlisted for something (colleges, classes, videogame releases) but THIS time it totally paid off to sign up anyway! Tomorrow night and all of Saturday I will be joining Bridge Troll for Rails Bridge Chicago, a two-part Ruby on Rails event. Friday night will be spent doing an install fest and making sure that my laptop is prepped for Saturday–which will be an in-depth introduction to Ruby on Rails. This will be an 8-hour workshop that will hopefully make me smarter than the average bear when it comes to making web apps. Wish me luck!
