We had a great meeting last month and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday 3/7/15.
We had a great meeting and learned about ruby on rails and the new View layer tool set called react.js. See a great lesson on it here: http://tylermcginnis.com/reactjs-tutorial-a-comprehensive-guide-to-building-apps-with-react/
We talked about ways to re-use the USB thumb drives that come with Dell laptop's that have the OS on them. They are write protected and require a rewrite of the firm ware to remove the write protection. We talked about how enterprises that standardize on Dell's laptops will end up with a bunch of 8 GB sticks that would make nice utility storage devices because they do not use them for a roll back os installer because they have a custom enterprise os image of their own that they install over the top of the pc before they deploy them.
We did not come up with a solution so we hope that one of our other members has a solution.
We shared some web resource links including:
http://businessmodelgeneration.com/ A great site for helping to plan a busines on a white board.
https://googlecloudplatform.github.io/appengine-php-wordpress-starter-project/ - A site to help you build a cloud based WordPress web site on the Google App Cloud Services
https://c9.io/ A great web based IDE.
https://www.nitrous.io/ - A great web based IDE with a desktop editing system.
Thank you to all the new members and returning members who came out today.
We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting March 7th, 2015
