RoRo Sydney Community: Ruby on Rails InstallFest - Evening 1 of 2

We are officially full for May! So, please RSVP for our June event here.

Did you miss out on April's InstallFest? Fear not! We are back and better!

Do you want to learn how to program and develop web applications for Ruby on Rails and have no idea where to start? Or, are you a company that has staff that need to get up to speed on Ruby on Rails?

Sponsored by reInteractive, Australia's largest Ruby on Rails focused development company, you are invited to attend the second Ruby on Rails InstallFest.

What is it about?

This will be your opportunity to get your laptop or computer working with a full Ruby on Rails development environment, all setup and working. Most importantly, it's a FREE service!

Evening 1 of 2

The first night we get your laptop up and running on Rails. This can take a bit of work. You are welcome to bring your Windows, Mac or Linux PC, our team can help get you running on any of these.

Once you are up and running, we get you building your own blog powered by Ruby on Rails, by the end of the night, you should have this up and running, online and published on the Internet :)

Evening 2 of 2

The second night starts with a review of Ruby on Rails and it's power, followed by another self paced tutorial on getting your now published blog personalised, with Javascript, CSS and headers and footers.  All the while learning more about Rails.

This runs over two nights, so be sure to register for the second evening to keep your place!

Free Stuff!

Not only do you get time with some of the reInteractive development team, you also get vouchers to various training tools and sites... worth real money :)

Wait, what do I bring?

The only requirement is you bring your computer along with whatever power charger you need, and also, please, make sure your computer works :)

OK, I need one more incentive. How about free food?

Yes, we'll organise pizza and drinks for you to munch on while you are getting your system up and running. Power boards will be provided, everything else is up to you.

What did they say about the first InstallFest?

“I’ll recommend it to anyone wanting to get into programming or ROR. The reInteractive team was so helpful and I’m so glad they’re running this for free!!” - Dhyana Scarano

“Everything was great- I loved that you guys could mentor us, walk us through the steps and help us troubleshoot.” - Solal Fitoussi

“Really enjoyed the chance to work through an example with assistance from the reInteractive team.” - Eddie Gock

How can I find more info on reInteractive training?

Just sign up here and we'll keep you up to date with all of our Ruby on Rails training, interesting tidbits, goings on and technical advice.

    Hi all :) As you know I have been given the task of collecting the blog URL's from all of you that have attended the InstallFest. I know some of you may still be working on yours and it is not perfect yet, but it would be a huge help if you could just take a second and email me or post your blog URL below. Once we hit 100 attendees we will also be running a competition for the best blog- it could be yours! Thanks for your help!

    Really good to get an end-to-end view and a test app going. Still lots to learn, but a great start. Thanks to all who made it possible.
