Learn the basics of programming a web application in this friendly and easy to follow workshop! Ruby on Rails is an extremely popular technology that powers thousands of websites and web applications throughout the world. Its strength lies in its ability to help developers create web applications quickly and with little hassle, which makes it particularly popular within the startup community. Rails was invented here in Chicago, so there is a lot of community around it right here in our city, and many Chicago companies have built their platforms upon it.
In this meetup, developer and educator Jay Wengrow will introduce you to Ruby on Rails and get you started working with it hands-on. No previous exposure to programming is required. This class will also serve as the foundation to the Ruby on Rails Level #2 Workshop which will be scheduled in the near future.
