This is a meet up for anyone who wants to learn web development (Ruby and Html/CSS), with a view of attending more complex sessions in the future.
Big thank you to Rosario Rascun of Coderwave who have kindly sponsored this event and are delivering this material.
We also have special guest, Emer Coleman (CEO of Dsrptn), who will share her experience and story of what it's been like being a woman in tech and how she has gotten to where she is today.
Knowledge of Html/Css is not necessary as we will start from the basics.
You will need your laptop, and a list of software which I have listed below.
This event is open exclusively to people who identify as female.
We will cover the following in this session:
1) Introduction: Internet, web servers and browsers.
2) How to use the Terminal and Command Prompt.
3) Basic Ruby Programming.
4) Setting up working environment.
5) Sublime Text Editor.
6) Ruby Framework for Server Programming: Sinatra.
