Ruby & Web Tuesdays

  • June 27 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is a study group and you are welcome to work on anything you would like in our friendly and helpful environment. Organizers and core team members of the Ruby Study group will be present to help you with any Ruby or JavaScript related questions. We welcome many levels of attendees: beginners, coders new to Ruby or JS, and anyone in between. Work on tutorials, personal projects, or just network! 

WWCode events are intended for all women (trans and cis), trans men, and genderqueer folks who are interested in attending. We are emphatically queer and trans friendly and committed to matters of social justice as an organization. Select events may be open to the general public, which will be clearly noted in event descriptions. If you have any questions (or identify differently and want to attend), please message the Directors of this Network. Please read and abide by our Code of Conduct
