RailsBridge Women's Ruby and Ruby On Rails Workshop

  • Oct 18, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

If you want to learn Ruby on Rails, this is the place!

Friday, October 18th, 6:00-9pm (REQUIRED): software install fest
Saturday October 19th: 9:30am-4pm: workshop

4:30pm: after-party for volunteers & attendees, location TBA

NOTE: We will most likely have more seats available, so if we fill up, please RSVP so we can see how many people are interested.

This workshop is intended to reach out to women who are new to Ruby and Rails. Men are welcome to come: please find the woman in your life who wants to learn Ruby and Rails and she can sign up and bring you as her guest. When registering, guys, make sure you let us know who you are coming as a guest of.

Total programming novices, system administrators, developers in other languages, and folks who attended our previous workshops and need a refresher are all welcome. We'll have different groups separated by experience level. Each participant needs to bring his or her own laptop to work on.

The workshop is FREE of charge!

In this workshop, we'll take you through building a complete web application using Ruby on Rails. By the end of the workshop, you'll have an application on the internet that connects to a database and reads and writes information.

We'll meet up Install Fest day to install all of the software you need, and then spend workshop day learning and writing code. You must attend the Install Fest on Friday so we can all get working on our Rails project first thing Saturday.

When you RSVP you'll be asked a few question about your laptop operating system, level and type of programming experience, and whether you will be bringing any children. If possible we prefer to find other arrangements but let us know in the questionnaire if you need to bring children and we'll sort something out.

Snacks will be provided Friday evening and lunch will be provided on Saturday.
If you have questions or ideas for us, the best way to get in touch is to send an email to [masked].

    This was such a great workshop! Does anyone have any leads on great RonR for-pay classes/bootcamps for the general public? My son is looking for a more in-depth class, and any recommendations are welcome! [masked]

      Bootcamps in the area that are worth considering are Turing.io and gSchool. Feel free to email me directly to discuss further.

    Wish I could come. I am commuting a long distance daily and also busy with my family.

    I'll try to do it later.
