Workshop Description

We are hosting a free beginners Rails Bridge workshop in Brighton, the day before the fabulous Brighton Ruby Conference.

To participate in learning Ruby on Rails at this workshop, you must consider yourself to be underrepresented in the tech industry (this includes women, transgender people, BAME and non-binary people). If you are a cis white man, you are welcome to attend as the +1 of someone who is underrepresented in tech. If you are unsure whether you are eligible, please get in touch first. Mentors can be from any demographic.

The focus will be on developing web apps and programming using Ruby on Rails. You can find all the curriculum materials here.

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.

This is an introductory workshop, no prior coding experience is required.

You can find out more about Ruby on Rails here.

Some examples of websites that are built using Ruby on Rails include Github, Air BnB, GOV.UK, Kickstarter and Soundcloud.
