We are FULL!? This is fantastic, if you do want to come, put your name down on the waiting list, we'll be hosting another Install Fest in May! For more information on the next Install Fest and other events please follow this link .
Do you want to learn how to program and develop web applications for Ruby on Rails and have no idea where to start? Or, are you a company that has staff that need to get up to speed on Ruby on Rails?

Sponsored by reInteractive, Australia's largest Ruby on Rails focused development company, you are invited to attend the inaugural Ruby on Rails InstallFest.

What is it about?

This will be your opportunity to get your laptop or computer working with a full Ruby on Rails development environment, all setup and working. Most importantly, it's a FREE service!

Evening 1 of 2

The first night we get your laptop up and running on Rails. This can take a bit of work. You are welcome to bring your Windows, Mac or Linux PC, our team can help get you running on any of these.

Once you are up and running, we'll direct you to the first tutorials you should start on.

Evening 2 of 2

The second night is a wild and fast ride through getting your first Ruby on Rails application working. It will be quick and aimed at an introductory level so that you can get a high level view of how the bits and pieces fit together.

This runs over two nights, so be sure to register for the second evening to keep your place!

Great! Tell me more!

On the first night, we'll be working with you to setup your Ruby on Rails development environment, all ready for the second night when you start developing!

Wait, what do I bring?

The only requirement is you bring your computer along with whatever power charger you need, and also, please, make sure your computer works :)

OK, I need one more incentive. How about free food?

Yes, we'll organise pizza and drinks for you to munch on while you are getting your system up and running. Power boards will be provided, everything else is up to you.


Simply join the Ruby on Rails Oceania Group by following this link and RSVP for the event. Don't forget to register for the second evening of the InstallFest.

RSVP today! Spots are limited and will fill up fast!
