January Meetup

Come mingle with other women from the Boston Ruby community over some food and drinks!

All levels of Ruby knowledge are welcome, so bring anyone you think would be interested.


Food and drinks will be sponsored by Metis.

Metis provides intensive courses teaching you job-ready skills for the new economy. Their first course is a 12-week in-person Ruby on Rails bootcamp in Boston.  The course is created and taught by thoughtbot developers.

    Will this meeting happen every month? I'd like to go, following RailsBridge, but I don't have much to show and much to ask at the moment. I'm planning on building and app, I'd love to come to a February meetup if that's happening!

      And yes - what Leslie said! The meetup is super informal, and we intend to keep it that way! But of course, we also allow room for anyone who might want to do something specific.

    Any interest in talking about how to do coding demos at interviews more successfully? I've been on both sides of the table, and have some recommendations. Let's share our experiences.
