  • Have a breakable toy side Rails project. It anchors your learning. Apply new skills/techniques here.
  • Put the code in Github. Give mentors access to the project. They'll review your code.
  • Understand the code review process and other style guidelines.
  • Deploy your breakable toy to Heroku.
  • Set learning goals weekly (e.g. X chapters of the Pickaxe, X Railscasts/week).
  • Keep a text document (using vim) to record interesting commands/concepts/things you've learned.
  • Review the text document daily for comprehension.
  • Use a Mac OS X laptop. Set it up using this script and these dotfiles.
