Curriculum Notes To Self: 1

I'm noticing a couple things about the timeline I have for the intensive Ruby section. I have two week set aside for that - as I've gotten started I'm realizing how much I'm not starting from scratch. I've been learning on my own for a while. Because of this, the first nine chapters of Learning To Program by Chris Pine (which is the Ruby book I'm starting with) has gone very fast. This won't be true for everyone who follows the Storming The Castle curriculum timeline. It might be worth it to figure out a minimum recommended level of progress before moving on. For instance, recommending to just take however long it takes to complete the Chris Pine, and if you finish that quickly use Beginning Ruby by Peter Cooper to shore up any fuzzy areas.
