Seattle RailsBridge Rails for Women Workshop

  • December 13, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Friday, December 13th, 6:00-9pm (REQUIRED): Software Installation Fest

Saturday, December 14th, 9:30am-4pm: Rails Workshop

4:00pm: Workshop Afterparty

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 that wants to learn Ruby and Rails who will register and bring you as a guest.

The workshop is  FREE of charge!

We are still looking for teachers, TAs, and logistics help. Sign up for the Volunteer event if you'd like to help out: http://www.meetup.com/SeattleRailsBridge/events/150975792/.

The workshop will be held at NIRD HQ,[masked]th Ave #201, Seattle, WA 98122.

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. Be sure to attend the Installfest, especially if you are on Windows, because Rails 3 can be a bit tricky on Windows.

Total programming novices, system administrators, and developers in other languages are welcome to attend. We'll have different classes separated by experience level. Each participant needs to bring his or her own computer.

When you RSVP you'll be asked a few question about your operating system, level and type of programming experience, and whether you will be bringing any children. We will plan for a playgroup on site if you're bringing a child.

Food will be provided Friday evening and breakfast and lunch will be provided on Saturday.

If you have questions, please send a message to the organizers.

    I am so appreciative of you experienced Ruby folks! Thank you for being extremely generous with your time and patience. It was beautiful to see all the women stepping out of their comfort zone. My fellow classmates are Amazing Rock Stars, and I'm grateful to now know you all!

    Sorry to have to cancel only a few hours after I signed up, but it looks like I wouldn't be able to get to the Friday part until after 7. I will try for the next time the class is offered. Thanks for your understanding.

    It might be a bit late to ask, but is there parking? The bus to Capitol Hill from Mountlake Terrace is less than ideal...

      There's on-street parking (paid until 8pm), and several paid lots in the neighborhood. The neighborhoods nearby have 2 hour parking, but you may need to drive around a bit to find an empty spot. The nearest unrestricted parking is the street parking at 18th and Pike. Hope this helps!

    What you don't want to do Conway's game of life with me?? You'll really get a lot out of the Railsbridge day but I will give you an update as soon as I can.

    Like Denise, I wish I could go to both RailsBridge and Global Day of Code. I'm choosing RailsBridge because I need it more. (Hi Denise. It's Val from the Accessibility workshop at Filter.)

      You should compare notes with Denise afterward, share what you each learned!

    What a bummer. There is a Global Code day on the 14th I've already committed to. I will hope to go to the next one.

      We'll see ya at the next Railsbridge, and give our regards to Global Day of Code!

    Hi, everyone :)! I originally signed up to help out but I'm really stuck with Rails and I think I need to be a student this time around.

    November 24, 2013

    • NIRD S.

      Cool! You can TA next time for sure :)
