This is a Ruby on Rails event. The focus will be on developing web apps and programming in Ruby. You can find all the curriculum materials at docs.railsbridge.org.
San Diego RailsBridge Workshop for Women is a day and a half FREE 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 Sunday, the 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 LGBTQQIP2SAA friendly. If you are not a member of an underrepresented group, you can attend as a student if you're the guest of someone who is a member of the workshop's target population. The workshop provides an opportunity for you to participate in outreach efforts and encourage someone to attend with you who might not otherwise come.
Parking around Little Italy on Friday evenings can be a little congested. We advise students to carpool, take public transportation, or UBER whenever possible!
If you are driving, here are some good parking options:
Food and drink will be provided. There will be pizza and beer Friday night for the Installfest. A light breakfast (probably bagels) and coffee as well as full lunch will be provided on Sunday.
On-site childcare will be available if people need it. Please indicate that you require child care when you sign up 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 Sunday for a drink and some shared appetizers. Location TBD.
