Join us for an introductory dive into Ruby, a beginner-friendly language used on servers in backend web development (i.e., the stuff that goes on between entering a URL and getting a web page back).

In this workshop, we will walk you through the basics of the Ruby language and how to use it to set up a basic web server.

Key Takeaways:

• All the tools you need to get up, running and coding with Ruby

• Ruby syntax for basic programming concepts like variables, loops, methods, strings, arrays and hashes

• The basics of how the World Wide Web works under the hood

• Setting up a simple web server and sending HTML pages to a browser

• Using your server to interact with Twitter via its API

Prerequisites and Preparation:

• Please bring your own laptop (Mac, PC or Chromebook).

• Please download and install Sublime Text ( (Hint: the download button is on the home page).

Light snacks will be provided.

*This event is open to adult (18+) beginners and is an introduction to concepts covered more deeply in the immersive program.
