Workshop Description

This free workshop is intended to reach out to women who are interested in learning modern 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.

Here is a video walking through more details of the workshop:
