What we're about

The workshops are geared to help, primarily, women learn Ruby On Rails. The workshops will be free and any level of experience is accepted; from having never coded to years of experience - all are welcome! Men are welcome, provided that they are a guest of a woman registered for the event. If you are interested in attending, supporting, volunteering or just want to know what is going on with the group please feel free to join.
