Intro to Ruby

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased from Eventbrite.  

Why Learn Ruby?

For this workshop, we say goodbye to the web browser and hello to our computer, literally. Ruby is one of the many languages your computer understands and that you can use to speak to it, but is known for being more elegant and natural compared to other programming languages.

In this workshop, you will learn about programming fundamentals – but it will be fun! Join us to learn how to speak to your computer and tell it to do things for you.

Is this workshop for you?

The Ladies Learning Code Intro to Ruby workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience. During the session, you will learn:

• basic programming techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages

• fundamental information about Ruby as a programming language

• how to speak to your computer in Ruby and return various value

• show to re-create popular math and word games using Ruby

• what resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will)

This workshop has been designed for absolute beginners. If you know absolutely nothing about coding or computer programming, you’ve come to the right place! Our only expectation is that you know how to open up a web browser and do something online like checking your email. (But if you’re reading this, we’re pretty sure you know how to do that.)

For more information, check out our guide on What to Expect from Your First LLC Workshop.

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased from Eventbrite
