Workshop Description

This workshop will teach programming using the language Ruby. We'll be using this curriculum to learn programming in small groups of students with a teacher to student ratio of 1:3. Students can work closely with a group or work independently and check in when they need help.

No prior programming experience is required but all experience levels are invited. If you have already attended a RailsBridge workshop we'd love to have you back again as a student and can accommodate for more learning with some advanced topics.

  • If you have never programmed before, this workshop is for you!
  • If you are dabbling in programming and want to learn more, this workshop is for you!
  • If you have been studying independently and would like some guidance from experienced community members, this workshop is for you!

However, if you are already a professional programmer, this may not be the best workshop for you.
