Workshop Description

San Diego RailsBridge Workshop for Women is a day and a half workshop that will take students through building a complete web application using Ruby on 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. We'll meet up Friday night to install all of the software you need, and then spend workshop day learning and writing code.

RailsBridge workshops focus on providing opportunities for under-represented populations in tech. This is an Outreach to Women Workshop. It is emphatically queer and trans* friendly. Men are welcome as the guest of a woman. The workshop provides an opportunity for you to participate in outreach efforts and encourage someone to attend with you who might not otherwise come.

Transportation and Parking

co-merge is located downtown San Diego at 330 A St., San Diego CA 92101. It is very close to the trolley (Civic Center or 5th Avenue stations) and a number of bus lines. There are lots of parking options nearby, none of them free.

Please refer to co-merge's parking page.

Food and Drinks

Food and drink will be provided. There will be pizza and beer Friday night, light breakfast (probably bagels) and coffee and lunch will be provided Saturday.


Child care arrangements have been made. It may still be possible to accommodate further requests, but we'll have to confirm that on a case by case basis at this point.

On-site childcare will be available if people need it. Please indicate that you require child care when you sign up if you will need it so arrangements are made. You will need to bring any food, drink, toys, supplies, etc. you need for your child or children.


Volunteers and students are welcome to join us after the workshop on Saturday for a drink and some shared appetizers at Downtown Johnny Brown's. DTJB's is a short walk away in the Civic Center Plaza.
