posted message: Okay, I have Github and Git working and have forked, but can't get to the coursework exercises. I have followed the steps in the video, but not all of them work on my Windows system, and I get nothing back except error messages and a READ.me file when I try to fetch the coursework exercises. I have pushed a couple of my own files up from Git to Github, so I know part of the process is working. How, exactly, do I get to the coursework exercises on Github?

posted message: Hey everybody, we're in our last week of the course ( I know its been a long and hard road, but you've made it! ). However I wouldn't want to let all these resources get archived and be hard to find. So I've decided to make the course an open study group! So take time to absorb the material and please ask questions if you get lost / stuck / learned something cool
posted message: How does Saturday 12pm EST sound for everyone who can make it? We will meet in the IRC room #p2pu-754-learn-ruby and move to video/voice chat that everybody can use. It will probably be skype, so the sooner you install that the better. See you then!
posted message: Hey everyone, back from the weekend and I hope your's was well also. I'd like to plan a time to have a chat session to answer any questions that you may have. I'm thinking this coming Saturday, what time would be best for you individual and I will elect the majority time as when we will meet.
posted message: Hey everyone, it looks like we've got half of the classes week 1 submissions. If you haven't posted your work, don't fret, just deliver your work when you can. We'll be moving on to week 2 now that includes an exercise outside of Learn To Program, this will overflow into week 3 and I'm thinking of conducting two chat sessions for questions and help. Also I'll still be accepting participants, just know you'll be playing catch up.
posted message: Hey everybody, so we hit the ten participants mark and I'll be starting the course next week Monday. For the first week you will need to complete the first five tasks 1) Installing Ruby, 2) Choose a Programming Editor, 3) Setting up Git and using Github, 4) Submitting Exercises, and 5) Week 1 Exercise. I look forward to learning with you all and hope you everybody gets something out of this course.
