ADA/curriculum/introduction.md: Timeframe for Students to Complete Ruby the Hard Way #22
Regarding the introduction to ADA for new students.
I've been working through Ruby the Hard Way (I was a wannabe ADA student, missed the deadline.) A quick scroll through the exercise list made me think that I could complete this assignment in a few days, however it's taking considerably longer. In fact, it seems to be by design: Exercise 22, for example, instructs students to spend a few days creating and recopying a list of commands and operators used thus far.
It could be helpful for future ADA students to see what would be a reasonable amount of time spent on that portion of the assignment.
We've had a compressed timeline for this first cohort of students, and I think we all wish it could be longer. I believe our general sense is that we'd like students to read as much as they can or RTHW, but recognize that not everyone will finish. I would edit the document to reflect that, but I really don't want to dilute anyone's sense of "do as much as I can"
(BTW - sorry you missed the deadline! Hopefully we'll see you apply for the next cohort.. if you get stuck on anything, have any questions, feel free to email me [kerri.miller at adadevelopersacademy dot org])
