Ruby on Rails June 18/19

This post was made to the blog for Ruby on Rails

Hi everyone, 

Ruby on Rails has been scheduled for June 18 & 19. If you plan on attending, please reserve a spot by checking out with the paypal button on the class page in the next day or two. If you'll be attending as a member, just let us know in the comments.

"In this class, we'll start from scratch and build a simple web app, deployed (publicly!) on Heroku. You'll learn the basics of MVC architecture, database communication, web forms, and how to organize a web experience. Based on time and interest from the class, we may also touch on topics such as: user accounts, integrating with other sites via APIs, live updates in the browser, email dispatch, and/or background processes. (Probably just as take-home assignments.) By the end of the weekend workshop, you will have built a simple site you can share with friends!"

L'illustrazione è un mondo bellissimo che può regalare enormi soddisfazioni ma non si può dimenticare che è veramente duro e complicato alle volte... "Quello dell’editoria non è un mondo facile per chi comincia. Un giovane che muove i primi passi da autore o da disegnatore incontra molte difficoltà nel proporre il suo lavoro, raramente riesce ad ottenere anche semplici consigli da chi nell’editoria lavora già da professionista. In questo contesto un giovane rischia di scoraggiarsi e rinunciare ai propri sogni, oppure rischia di diventare facile preda di chi vive truffando proprio i giovani dilettanti. Negli anni abbiamo incontrato, visionato e consigliato molti ragazzi e ci siamo resi conto che il dilettantismo parla una lingua universale, una lingua che valica i confini regionali e il confine tra i generi editoriali.

Practicalities of Revolt 1

This post was made to the blog for Practicalities of Revolt
Hello everyone,
The first meeting of Practicalities of Revolt has been scheduled for Thursday, May 26 at 8pm. In this first session Cara Baldwin, Ken Ehrlich, Michael Wilson and I will discuss the “practicalities of revolt” online: Electronic Civil Disobedience, the role of social networking in revolt (both through mobilization and magnification) and the organization of resources (both tactical and conceptual in facilitating revolution). The evening will also celebrate the launch of the new version of Occupy Everything [], that will act as a repository for information and materials generated in upcoming PoR classes. 
We will post some more early next week and a couple of readings. 
See you soon!
