Free Ruby on Rails workshops for women and their friends.
A RailsBridge event is:
• an InstallFest on Friday night (6pm - 9pm), with drinks and snacks, where we help you set up your computer with the software you’ll need;
• and an all-day Workshop on Saturday (9am - 6pm), including breakfast and lunch, where you’ll learn to use both Ruby and Rails to build and publish a web application.
You’ll be given sufficient background and confidence to continue developing their Rails skills independently. We’ll be teaching in English and Afrikaans.
The Friday night InstallFest is about software, snacks, and sharing. It's about unwinding from your day and preparing for the next day's adventure.
The Saturday workshop is quite informal. You'll work through the documentation (http://docs.railsbridgecapetown.org/) at your own pace, asking questions and getting answers from yourself, the other attendees, and from teachers who are close by in case you would like some help.
