This is a Ruby on Rails event. The focus will be on developing web apps and programming in Ruby. You can find all the curriculum materials at docs.railsbridge.org.
This free workshop is intended to reach out to women and nonbinary people who are interested in learning more about web development, or who are just curious about the world of code.
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.
If you have never coded at all, you are especially welcome to join us!
AffiniPay is sponsoring dinner & breakfast, and is providing swag for attendees.
Bear & Giraffe is sponsoring lunch.
thoughtbot is providing our event space and sponsoring free childcare.
Please note: We can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options, but if you require special accommodations, please make sure to tell us your dietary needs so we can order the correct amount.
