Nice one man. I’m in a similar groove. I found that the tree house tutes are a fantastically quick and funky way of grabbing the basics. If I have to pick up the basics of a new language quickly, I will probably re-subscribe to them.
Plus one for the meetups. I’m amazed at how much community is out there. You have to be there to soak it up.
I’m attending a cool hackathon in a few weeks. It should be a pretty awesome experience.
