***There are a limited number of spots available for this event. Please register via Bridge Toll (http://www.bridgetroll.org/events/68) to secure your spot. *****

Installfest:

Location: General Assembly (902 Broadway 4th floor

7:00 - 9:00pm Friday, November 8th

Friday night will be the Installfest to make sure that your machine is ready to ride come Saturday. We will make sure Ruby and Rails is installed and your development environment is sufficient for you to build your first application.

Workshop:

Location: General Assembly (902 Broadway 4th floor)

9:00am - 5:00pm Saturday, November 9th

In this workshop, we'll take you through the steps to build a web application. We'll have different classes depending on experience level. Total novices can start with an Intro to Programming, while experienced programmers can jump right into Ruby and Rails. By the end of the workshop, you'll have an application on the internet that connects to a database and reads and writes information.

Handybook Sponsored Afterparty:
Location: Handybook (134 W 29th st, 5th floor)

6:00 - 8:00pm Saturday, November 9th
After students have successfully concluded the workshop we will head over to Handybook for 2 hours of open bar, appetizers and lots of other good stuff!!!

Student Checklist:
Required to attend both days of the session
Each participant needs to bring their own laptop.
If you have a Mac, download and install Xcode on your laptop before coming to Installfest on Friday. (Xcode is the software that creates a coding environment for you to tinker with during the workshop.)
Xcode is a very large file that takes 2-3 hours to download and cannot be done at the Installfest.http://installfest.railsbridge.org/installfest/install_xcode
Download the version of RailsInstaller that is right for your machine. This is not as download-intensive as Xcode, but it is still wise to download ahead of the Installfest on Friday.http://www.railsinstaller.org/
