Workshop Description

This workshop is intended to reach out to women and non-binary people whom are interested in learning web development!

In this workshop, we'll take you through the process of building a complete web application using Ruby on Rails. By the end of the day, you'll have an application that connects to a database, reads and writes data, and renders html in a browser. If you've never attended a RailsBridge event or used Rails before, please come to the Friday night Installfest. We'll meet up Friday to install all of the software you need, and then spend Saturday learning and writing code. Programmers of all skill levels are welcome and students will be delineated into different classes based on the experience level you choose when you sign up.


Transportation and Parking

The closest BART stop is Embarcadero. It is about half a mile from Bugcrowd. When you arrive, look for someone who looks like they're looking for you, and say "RailsBridge?". If the response is "Welcome!", you've found the right person. If the response is confusion, look around for someone else :)

There will be bike parking available inside Bugcrowd.

Food and Drinks

Bugcrowd is sponsoring dinner Friday night as well as breakfast and lunch on Saturday.


Childcare will be provided upon request, please e-mail the organizer to set it up.
