Workshop Description

Our event is broken up into 2 days of instruction. This is a special, smaller RailsBridge to test out how Nitrous.IO works as a development environment with the RailsBridge curriculum. Because there is not much to install when using Nitrous.IO, Friday night will be an introduction to the tool that we will be using and we will go over Ruby basics.

On Saturday, we will dive right in to the RailsBridge curriculum.

Because this is a proof-of-concept RailsBridge, space is limited to 15 students, so make sure you reserve your spot ASAP.


Space is donated by Sony.
