Join this code reading study group - already 20+ members

If you’re like me you want to get into the habit of reading source code
but everytime you do you just end up stumped and give up. If that sounds
familiar then you will probably want to join the study group im setting
up. Over 20+ people have already registered since I announced this on
rubyflow last night and even more would be fantastic!

This is totally non commercial i.e. FREE and all in the spirit of
helping contribute to the ruby community.

hi ryan,

thanks and good question. Forking the project gives us our own project
on github for the sole purpose of asking and answering questions. Github
allows you to post comments inline with the code with their online
project viewer. We’d also get a nice shiny new issue tracker which could
be used for conversations. If we didnt fork it then all our comments
would show up in the orignal project, getting in the way of its
development.

If you have any other ideas let me know. Ill be opening up google groups
as a central place to communicate tomorrow - gather peoples ideas etc.
Hope to see you there!.

Github just seems like a weird place to do it, since it is not built for
discussion. It’s not a bulletin board.

No, it’s not a bulletin board, but that’s not the only way to foster
discussion. GitHub provides issues, wikis, file/line/commit comments.
Those
sound like good ways to have discussion.

There are many reasons to use GitHub. Some people do it because it takes
less effort than setting up your own git server. Some people do it for
the
visibility. Some people do it because, let’s be honest, it’s de rigueur.

Some people use GitHub for the social/discussion aspects. Some people
use
it almost entirely for these aspects. If GitHub can be (and is) used for
code reviews, it can definitely be used for a code reading study group.
