STUDENTS: RailsBridge Workshop for Women

**IMPORTANT**Please read to the bottom of this message**

This Los Angeles Women’s Ruby on Rails Group workshop is intended to reach out to women in the Los Angeles area who are interested in learning Ruby on Rails. Men are welcome to attend if you bring a woman who wants to learn Ruby on Rails too.

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 on a Friday evening for introductions and to install all of the software you’ll need. We will then spend Saturday working through the curriculum. Total programming novices, system administrators and developers in other languages are all welcome. Each class will be separated by experience level.

In order to participate in this workshop, each participant needs to bring her/his own laptop and power supply. Please also note that we will be sending out emails on a regular basis with updates, notifications and to-do’s prior to the event. So please make sure the email address you have listed on Meet-Up.com is one that you check frequently. You will lose your spot if you fail to respond in a timely manner.

If you have a Mac, you must install Xcode on your laptop before coming to the first part of the workshop on Friday. (Xcode is the software that creates a coding environment for you to build your app.) Xcode is a very large file that takes 2-3 hours to download, and only one the first step in a more involved setup process. **If you need help, please contact Tiffany . When you have it completed, please add the words "XCode Complete" to your RSVP. Please do this step, if you do not, you will be unable to participate in the workshop. If you do not have a mac, you do not need to do this--please simply add your OS to your meetup RSVP.

      I don't currently have the next one planned. Probably mid January due to the holidays.

    Hi everyone,
    I'm Raymond from Redondo Beach! I've been dying to meet people who want to learn Ruby on Rails from scratch. I've set up the installation environment on my laptop already and created the sample first application. It's too late for me to go to tonight's Santa Monica event, but I plan to go tomorrow. I hope it's ok. (I used to be a web developer years ago, but I'm returning to it.)

    Please let me know how it went tonight!

    Hi. I'm running Mac OS X Leopard[masked], so I'll have to install an older version of Xcode -- will this affect my ability to participate in the workshop?

    Also, how late will the Saturday event last?

      Go to https://developer.appl...­ Once you've "Registered as an Apple Developer" for free, go to >> Dev Center for Mac >> Additional Downloads/View all downloads >> Search for Xcode 3.1.4 >> Download the .dmg file.

    I'm bringing my husband. Is it okay if he's the one installing software on Friday night as I have another obligation? I will be there all day Saturday.

    September 18, 2012

    • Tiffany D.

      Will you be sharing a computer? Or will he install the software on two different machines? It should be fine either way, but you will get more out of the workshop if you each have computers to work on.

      Hi Tiffany. Two separate laptops. He's going to be installing and we'll both be attending with those two laptops on Saturday!

    How late does Installfest go on Friday? I'll be coming from work in Burbank, and may not be able to leave the office early.
