Come out and join some of the Baltimore Node members at the Baltimore Hackathon June 8th-10th, 2012. Should be a good time to bust out that dusty Arduino of yours and put it back to good use, plus you might even win a prize. Ticket includes t-shirt and tasty food for the weekend. Check out the website for more details: http://baltimorehackathon.com
Hope to see you there!
Interested in learning Ruby or just learning how to program? Come to the Baltimore Node and we’ll do a quick overview of the language, get some pizza from Joe^2 to go, and spend the rest of the time learning the language at your own pace. You’ll be able to ask any questions you want and get some personal help getting started. We can also provide some common problems and exercises if you need some guidance. At the end, we’ll see if there’s any interest in starting a regular study group for one of the many free online programming classes: http://www.udacity.com/
Experienced programmers are welcome to join to work on their own projects and help others out when needed.
If you’re coming, try to install Ruby on your laptop in advance, but it’s not absolutely necessary.

Baltimore Node- Baltimore's Playground's "Art Class"
Jason Denney hosted the first of our “The More You Node” classes on Friday, February 10, 2012. It was a class about using the primary and secondary colors for painting pictures called “Art Class.” Members from the Baltimore Node and the Baltimore’s Playground meetup.com group enjoyed refreshments, learning, and meeting new people. Thank you Jason for organizing this event!

The Node will be hosting an art class for the first installment of “The More You Node” led by folks from the Baltimore’s Playground Meetup. We’ll be making a simple painting using only primary and secondary colors and basic shapes, which will leave you with something nice to show off on your fridge. The grading scale is 80% participation and 20% effort, so should be an easy ‘A’ for you. We will provide paint, paper, and some brushes, but if you have your own supplies please bring them! You should also bring a ruler if you can.
RSVP to help us gauge supplies. You’ll need a meetup.com account, or you can simply email me: jasondenney “at” gmail.
We’re (re-)starting learning nights at the Node. Watch this space for announcements. We’re appropriately naming this learning endeavor The More You Node
