We are looking for experienced Rails developers of all genders to volunteer at the RoR Outreach Workshop for Women: Day 1 InstallFest and Mixer (, graciously hosted by PivotalLabs ( at their San Francisco office.

The June workshop was a huge success thanks in large part to the awesome volunteers. As one attendee put it:

"... the frustrating task of installing the zillion incomprehensible little downloads it takes to run RoR was made tolerable, even pleasant, by the attentive corps of volunteers, who smiled even through the most cryptic error messages. "

As an InstallFest volunteer you will:

Answer questions about what is being installed (
Help troubleshoot as attendees set up their laptops for the next day.
Meet other Rails developers.
Have fun!

Food & drink will be provided, thanks to EngineYard (

Love to teach or just answer questions? We also need volunteers to help with RoR Outreach Workshop: Day 2 (
