This workshop is intended to reach out to women, people of color and LGBTQ/Nonbinary people who are interested in learning Ruby on Rails. Students who do not identify as a member of these groups are welcome to attend as a guest (+1) of an attendee who does. RailsBridge is emphatically queer and trans friendly.
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.
We'll meet up Friday to install all of the software needed, and then spend Saturday learning and writing code. Programmers of all skill levels are welcome and students will be separated into different classes based on the experience level they choose when signing up.
