Did you know that the first international version of
Rails Girls (http://railsgirls.com/)happened in Singapore in 2011?

Read about it on e27.co:
- Rails Girls Singapore: Not so beginner, after all (http://e27.co/rails-girls-singapore-not-so-beginner-after-all/)
- Rails Girls from HEL to SIN (http://e27.co/rails-girls-go-from-hel-to-sin/)

Well.. It's been a while, but we are going to do it again,
on 28 June 2014, the day after RedDotRubyConf 2014 (http://www.reddotrubyconf.com)!

Have you always wanted to learn about Ruby on Rails?
Yes! This is your chance to get acquainted with RoR,
and there'll be coaches who will guide you along!

What is Rails Girls? (From the website..)

Our aim is to give tools and a community for women
to understand technology and to build their ideas.
We do this by providing a great experience on building things
and by making technology more approachable.

Learn sketching, prototyping, basic programming and
get introduced to the world of technology.
Rails Girls was born in Finland, but is nowadays a
global, non-profit volunteer community.

What's going to happen on 28 June?

We'll start the day at 9:30am with registrations and coffee,
and end the day at around 4:30pm.

You'll go through a crash course of building web applications
using Ruby on Rails with the help of our coaches.

At the end of the day, you would feel inspired and confident
to continue your Rails journey on your own!
