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 Saturday, the workshop day learning and writing code.
RailsBridge workshops focus on providing opportunities for under-represented populations in tech. The primary outreach is to women, but we support diversity in gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, and class. So, if you think you belong to an under-represented population in tech, you’re probably right - join us! 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.
