  • Enphase Energy

Friday March 11, 6:30-9pm (REQUIRED): software install fest
Saturday March 12: 9:30am-4pm: workshop
5pm: AFTER PARTY! for volunteers & attendees, location TBA

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

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

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. Snacks will be provided Friday evening and lunch will be provided If you have questions or ideas for us, the best way to get in touch is to send a message to the organizers.

We are looking for additional volunteers! both folks who know Ruby on Rails to TA and people who are willing to help with logistics. Please sign up here:


If the event has filled up already and you want to be on the announce list for future workshops, we have a google group: http://groups.google....

    So happy to have had the opportunity to learn about Ruby on Rails. I have had an interest in it for some time and this pushed me in the right direction. I haven't done much programming in quite a while and needed to get back in the game! It made me realize how much I enjoy this kind of work.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
