Details

We had a really productive idea generation session at the last project group! The aim was to come up with ideas related to women in tech - ideas that somehow solves a problem the Rails Girls participants are facing. We came up with a lot of cool ideas, and ended up with 4 ideas that all have the aim to solve this problem, are technically feasible to realise, and aims for doing common good. This evening we will finally decide on one of the ideas and start the planning phase of it in the new year. Join if you'd like to contribute to our Open Source project!

17:15 - Get into groups and start working on the project

19:30 - End of the evening

What is a Project Group:
A project group is a meetup where we regularly get together to learn from and with each other. You're warmly invited to join us regardless of you level or what you're working on. If you bring a project or coding homework we will do our best to match you with a skilled coach for your questions, or if you'd just like to learn, we will make sure to get you started on tutorials and resources.

Our beginners groups study the basics of programming in Ruby, javascript and react. The next level groups learn the basics of building a web application. More advanced groups maintain previously started projects and continue learning more advanced topics.

As an addition to the regular Project Group format, we are also having an idea workshop where we will come up with new project ideas together. It will be nice for attendees that there is always an ongoing project to contribute to and learn from. All coding levels and languages are welcome - we will try decide on a project where the workshop attendees' skills can be used best.

Food:
Throughout the evening we will have coffee, tea, soft drinks and dinner, all kindly sponsored by our host company Karnov.

We hope to see you! Get in touch if you have any questions.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR RSVP UP TO DATE.
We are limited to 20 guests, so if you plan to come and realise suddenly, even at the last minute, you can't, please let us know by sending an email to [masked].
