Workshop Description

The course presented by Railsbridge Honolulu and Aloha.rb is for women who want to learn Ruby on Rails in a friendly and warm environment. Men that wish to attend must be the guest of one of the women.

The event will be broken up into two days of instruction and all experience and age levels are welcomed.

RailsBridge for providing all the course material.

The Sullivan Center for Innovation and Leadership - ‘Iolani School for hosting this event.

Transportation and Parking

There will be limited parking available. We encourage people to take TheBus, bike, and carpool if possible.

Food and Drinks

There will be a pizza dinner for the Installfest and an early dinner during the Workshop.


We will have babysitters and a space set aside for your children.

Student Checklist

Each participant needs to bring their own laptop.
If you have a Mac, download and install Xcode on your laptop before coming to Installfest on Friday. (Xcode is the software that creates a coding environment for you to tinker with during the workshop.) Xcode is a very large file that takes 2-3 hours to download and cannot be done at the Installfest.

Download the version of RailsInstaller that is right for your machine. This is not as download-intensive as Xcode, but it is still wise to download ahead of the Installfest on Friday.
