I'm thinking about starting a study group to go through Michael Hartl's book http://ruby.railstutorial.org/ruby-on-rails-tutorial-book
Is there any interest in that? Or going through a different tutorial?
**EDITED TO ADD:** There is interest! All further communication for the study group will take place in this sub. We're starting Monday!

I would be interested in this. Would also be cool to do this for Learn Ruby the Hard Way after we get through this book
One idea I’ll toss in here.. I started the railstutorial.org this week, currently on Chapter 3. I did chris pines Ruby site first.
If you broke up each Chapter into its own separate post, then once I hit say, Chapter 5, I could read there, see what other people needed more info on and discussions revolving around that chapter. Then a next thread for Chapter 6.
Would enable us to go at our own pace (a chapter a week would be so slow, since they can take about 3 hrs each), but you’ll see familiar faces posting in different chapters with whoever you’re matching your pace with.
I think http://www.reddit.com/r/Learn_Rails/ is more update today with the Learning Rails Community.
I’m interested as well. I’ve been trying to make it through Mr Hartl’s book since the first edition. I keep making it to chapter 4 or 5 then something else comes up and by the time I make my way back to it, it’s been updated for a new Rails release and I want to start from scratch to make sure I don’t miss anything. I believe a study group would help keep me focused. Looking forward to more details!
Count me in.
Let’s do this!
I’m also interested

Does this mean one thread / one chapter a week? I have a lot of time to dedicate to this and would prefer to do it quickly, though I do realize I may be an outlier.
OO OO IM INTERESTED MEMEMEME.
But seriously this is a great idea. Working through Hartl’s book as well, and would love to talk it out. See you guys there!
