Workshop Description

We are excited to announce that the next RailsBridge NYC workshop will take place Sept. 26-27 at Dev Bootcamp, 48 Wall Street, 15/F.

This will be specifically for ADVANCED students, NOT beginner students.

If you identify with any of these levels as designated within BridgeTroll, feel free to attend this workshop:

Gold - Some Rails Experience
-You're comfortable using the terminal, but not necessarily a Power User
-You have a general understanding of a Rails app's structure, perhaps from a prior workshop or tutorial
-You know how to define a method in Ruby
-You have a decent handle on Ruby arrays and hashes

Orange - Other Programming Experience
-You're proficient in another language and understand general programming concepts, like collections and scope.
-You're new to Ruby and Rails
-You might be familiar with version control and basic web architecture

Purple - Ready for the Next Challenge
-You've exhausted the fun of the Suggestotron/Intro Rails curriculum
-You're comfortable with the terminal
-You want to problem-solve instead of copying other's code
-You want to build an app without using scaffolds

This is a free Ruby on Rails workshop for women and their friends. If you identify as male, we ask that you please bring along your favorite woman to introduce her to Ruby on Rails to forward our mission statement. Please make sure you and your friends RSVP on the event page.
