An Introductory course to Ruby on Rails for students and new programmers!

Have you considered programming, but just don't know where to start? Have you tried programming but it was just too daunting, and you need a helping hand? Come on out to Rails Bridge and work with a group of awesome volunteers who are excited to help get you started down this incredible career path!

NO previous experience is necessary!

This workshop is intended for members of under-represented groups in tech, such as women and racial minorities. Bonus points if you're new to programming, changing careers, or a young adult.

The Plan :

We'll start with the InstallFest on Friday night and make sure you have everything you need on your computer. If you can make it through the InstallFest process on your own, you don't need to come Friday night.

Saturday, we'll start with an introduction to programming so you can get the basic concepts, and then we'll dive into building a web application!

Sponsored by the Knoxville Entrepeneur's Center, Rails Machine, and the Tech Knoxville Community.

Parking is available in the Market Square or State Street Garages in downtown Knoxville.

Lunch and Snacks to be provided on Saturday.

Afterparty TBD

2 volunteers!

13 students!
