Completed Tasks

  1. Successfully installed Ubuntu. Went smoothly other than having to go through motherboard BIOS to enable virtual machines.
  2. Used Ubuntu's terminal to install the Discourse web app. Had trouble creating a file and saving it within Ubuntu but pulled through!
  3. Have a basic understanding of the syntax of Ruby. Was easy thanks to the very quick and informative YouTube tutorial provided by Mike Dane as well as background knowledge in OOP and Python.
