Update from the RailsBridge Triangle Organizers

We on the RailsBridge Triangle organizers team are appalled at the most recent instances of police murders of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and Dion Johnson. We stand in solidarity with the protesters across the world that are taking to the streets and making their voices heard against a constant stream of police violence.

We will be evaluating how we can best be of service to our community, and that may mean cancelling / postponing the Intro to Rails event. This movement deserves our full and undivided attention.

Thank you for your understanding and please check back on this page for updates.

Workshop Description

This [ONLINE] workshop is for members of underrepresented groups in tech who are interested in learning Ruby on Rails.

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. We'll meet on Friday to install all of the software you need, and then spend Saturday learning and writing code. All skill levels are welcome.

Check out the RailsBridge Triangle site for more information.

Transportation and Parking

This event will be done virtually, so no transportation or parking info to share!

Food and Drinks

We normally provide pizza and drinks for the Installfest, and then breakfast and lunch during the Workshop, but this will be held online, so...


We normally provide childcare for the workshop on Saturday. We're planning on offering some activities for kids -- some offline -- including an online music-for-kids-focused session of their own.

Please register for "child care" if you think they'd be interested, and let us know if you think they'd be able to be online at the same time at you (maybe on a phone or tablet?).We'll be in touch the week of the event to make a plan with you based on the number of registrations, ages, etc.
