Do you want to learn how to code and develop web applications for Ruby on Rails and have no idea where to start? Or, are you a company that has staff that need to get up to speed on Ruby on Rails?

You are invited to attend the Ruby on Rails InstallFest, an initiative by reinteractive (

What is it about?

This is your opportunity to get your laptop or computer set up with a full Ruby on Rails development environment. Most importantly, it's a FREE service!

Bring your Windows, Mac or Linux PC, our team can help get you running on any of these.

Once your laptop is set up, we get you building your own blog powered by Ruby on Rails. By the end of the three-hour workshop, you should have this up and running, online and published on the Internet.

Wait, what do I bring?

The only requirement is you bring your computer along with whatever power charger you need, and also, please, make sure your computer works :) Power boards will be provided, everything else is up to you.

OK, I need one more incentive. How about free food?

Yes, reinteractive ( will be providing pizza and drinks for you to enjoy while you are getting your system up and running.

I'm a professional Rails Developer, can I help mentor?

Yes, we are always looking for experts to come along and help :-) Just send us an email ([masked]) or RSVP to let us know you'd like to come along.
