If you want to learn Ruby on Rails, this is the place!

Friday, November 4, 6-8pm (REQUIRED): Software InstallFest
Saturday, November 5, 9am-3pm: Workshop

This workshop is intended to reach out to underrepresented minorities (including but not limited to people of color, women, and LGBTQ* folks) who are new to Ruby and Rails.

Total programming novices, system administrators, developers in other languages, and folks who attended our previous workshops and need a refresher are all welcome. We'll have different groups separated by experience level.

Each participant needs to bring a laptop to work on.

The workshop is FREE of charge!

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.

You must attend the Install Fest on Friday.

We provide all meals for the event so that you can focus on the code! We do not have the resources to provide child care, but we welcome children to the space if you need to bring them along.


The Pivotal office is located about a quarter mile from Union Station, the transit hub of Denver. Participants are highly encouraged to make use of available public transportation options. There are also several paid parking lots, including one directly north of the office on Platte St. and one by REI. If you don't mind a short walk, there's a footbridge crossing I-25 from the Highlands neighborhood, where street parking is free.
