Hi Everyone, I’m excited to have you join us next month. Its going to be great. If any of you are interested in going ahead there are some core skills you could work on now that will help you get started.
We’ll be working primarily in Linux. So if you can get your hands on the latest version of Ubuntu and get that installed on your laptop. That would be a good start.
If you’re more ambitious you can go ahead and get the whole LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack set up on your computer. http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_lamp_for_newbies
If you’re really ambitious you can install and start learning Git http://git-scm.com/book/ch1-3.html
For less technical preparatory reading you can go throught the Agile Scrum guide
And read up on the Lean Startup Methodology
