Seattle RailsBridge Rails for Women Workshop

Friday, April 11th, 6:00-9pm (REQUIRED): Software Installation Fest

Saturday, April 12th, 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/171102422/.

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 on Friday night for the Installfest to install all of the software you need, and then spend the Saturday workshop learning and writing code. Be sure to attend the Installfest, especially if you are on Windows, because Rails 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 have to give up my spot but can't see how to change my RSVP! I hope this is enough and that a waitlist gal can attend tomorrow. Sorry for late notice.

      No worries. We got everyone in from the waitlist at the last minute. Hope to see you next time! :)

    Hi! I'm getting out of work late so won't be able to make it until around 7 :( I have a Mac that already has ruby so I hope there won't be issues! I hope this is okay! :)

    Would it be okay if I arrived around 20 minutes late?

    I'm sorry, I can't make this! I didn't realize I'd gone from the waiting list to the Going list. Sorry for the late notice!

    I'm looking forward to this! I'm all set up with ruby and rails (thanks, GDI!), so I'll see everyone on Saturday.

    I've never been on a waiting list on Meetup. If magically a spot opens up for me (crossing my fingers), will I get an email notification? Or just an alert here? I'm just wondering how frequently I should be checking back here. :)

    • cheri a.

      I think Meetup will send you a message, or you just get shifted up into the "Going" group. Also, we usually send out an email to all the waiting list folks on Thursday to let you know what the situation is. I wouldn't worry about checking back in before Friday, I don't think it's possible that spaces will open up but you'll miss out on getting into them.

    I'm in from the wait list, yes! As a 'total novice' what should I bring, other than a macbook and enthusiasm?

    2 · April 8, 2014

    • cheri a.

      Well, your Macbook's power cord.... And that's it! See you Friday.

    I would like to give up my spot. I'm moving on Sunday and need Sat for last minute chaos.

      Ok, good luck with the move!

    I've been hearing a lot about Nitrous, a Vitrual-boxy kind of thing to let Windows (or others) users develop in Rails with a little less pain. Would it be appropriate for Railsbridge? https://www.nitrous.io

      If we already have a setup, can we skip the Friday night install?

      April 7, 2014

    • Renée H.

      Yes no problem. As long as you have ruby and rails installed you will be all set for Saturday.

    Rails Girls is running a summer internship program for green Rails Devs. http://railsgirlssummerofcode.org/blog/where-to-start/ It could be a fun way to build on what we learn at Railsbridge. :)
