Workshop Description

RailsBridge is a weekend workshop geared towards introducing women to Ruby on Rails in a safe and welcoming environment. RailsBridge is emphatically queer, non-binary, and trans friendly.

In this workshop, we'll take you through 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 and reads and writes information.

PLEASE NOTE: Installfest is required for participation in this workshop. We'll meet up on Friday to install all of the software you need, and then spend Saturday learning and writing code. Programmers of all skill levels are welcome. We will have different classes separated by experience level (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced).
