Optional workshop on learning your computer more. Meeting time: TBA
Things to do week of Oct. 9
Install the Sublime Text editor
Learn how to get to the command line
Set up Ruby
Google instructions on how to get the Ruby programming language installed on your machine. If you are on Mac OSX 10.8+, it will already be installed.
How do you know if it works? Go to your command line and type in:
OSX: Set up homebrew
If you are on a Mac, install homebrew. You will also probably have to setup some XCode things…email me or google around if you have problems.
Install the t gem
Find out who your most popular follower is
Use the t gem (again, the instructions are more or less here) to:
- Download a CSV file of all your followers
- Find the follower of yours who themselves has the most followers
Hint: You can do step 2 in a spreadsheet if you wish.
If you don't have a Twitter account or a popular one, find Peninsula's Press most popular follower.
