Public WiFi



This is the first study group meeting for CS169.2x, UC-Berkeley's second edition of its SAAS class on edx.org. See https://www.edx.org/courses/BerkeleyX/CS169.2x/2012_Fall/about

The course teaches "software as a service" fundamentals using Ruby on Rails. The courseware just opened this past Monday, November 5th, so a few of use are hoping to form a study group in the physical here in pdx. Feel free to join us! Email me at [email protected] for any questions.

Description from EDX:

CS 169.2x is the second half of University of California, Berkeley's semester long course on Software as a Service. In the first half of the course, CS 169.1x, students use Agile development methods to deploy a simple SaaS app in the cloud. In the second half, CS 169.2x, students create more sophisticated apps by adding relationships between models in apps and by enhancing their apps with JavaScript. They also learn about what happens after the apps are deployed to real users, including how to monitor performance, identify and fix common performance problems, and avoid compromising customer data. Finally, students learn how to apply Agile techniques to enhance and refactor legacy code, a critical skill for professional programmers.
