Workshop Description

Join us for a day of HTML, CSS and JavaScript learning at Google! By the end of the day, you should be familiar with the concepts that go into building sites for the web, and have built one of your own!

Attendees should identify as a woman, and can bring a guest of any gender. You should be comfortable using a computer, but no programming experience or hardware expertise is required. You should have your own laptop to bring along. Mac, Windows, and Linux machines are welcome.
And if you sign up but don't get the confirmation email, check your spam folder!

Our Policy on Kids

We think having kids between the ages of 8 - 18 attend RailsBridge is awesome!! But, because we're barely responsible adults ourselves, we don't want to be responsible for them. But, we'd love it if parents and kids attended together! So, if your kid wants to attend, you should both sign up and come together! We'd love to have you!

Things to Consider

We've "sold out" most of our events so far only to have people not show up or cancel at the very last minute. That makes it really hard on the folks on the waitlist who don't get bumped up until the last minute and can't make it and means we can't get everyone in who wants to attend. We work really hard to put these events on and we'd love it if the people who sign up show up, or at least cancel with enough notice that folks on the wait list have enough notice to make it.


You'll need the following things to be able to successfully participate in RailsBridge:

- A reasonably up to date laptop running Windows, OS X or Linux
- The power cord for that laptop
- A text editor like Brackets or Sublime Text
- A little patience
- A little curiosity


A huge thank you to our sponsor who are giving of both their money and time to make this event free for everybody!

Transportation and Parking

Free parking is available right next to the address, and there should be plenty for everyone.

Food and Drinks

We'll have breakfast, lunch and snacks, so come with both an appetite for learning and one for food!


The after party will be at Sports Page Bar & Grill. There's a huge patio outside and even a volleyball net!

19 volunteers!

51 students!
