Overview

This is an idea that came up during a break at a daylong session at Lone Star Ruby Conference and I quick registered the domain name. I thought it would be fun to find people who are willing to pair program in your area. So this is this start of such a project. Hopefully I can find others to help me with it and get it going (and keep me on it).

Plan:

  • Page where Developers can login and make a profile, including the following:
    • twitter, linked in profiles, github
    • areas of code you like (tests, views, database, etc)
    • city, state (optional)
    • prefer in-person or online pair programming
    • link to coderwall
  • Page to search/browse people similar to you
  • Comment on profile (talk positively how it was to pair with that person)

Future:

  • Maybe a reward system (stars? rubyies?) that people can award someone who was helpful. Maybe sponsors can offer prizes.

Get up and running

  1. Fork the repo It's just this easy
  2. Clone your shiny new repo git clone git@github.com:username/rubypair.git
  3. Get you some bundler gem install bundler
  4. Get you some gems bundle install
  5. Copy the example config file into the config directory cp config/examples/app_config.yml config/
  6. Register your application (This makes authentication work) Register Here!
  • Main URL for development may vary some but mine is http://localhost:3000 since I just use Webrick
  • Callback URL is http://localhost:3000/auth/github adjust your accordingly.
  1. There is no 7! You should be ready to hack.
