What is Rails Bridge?

A free, two-day Ruby on Rails workshop for women and their friends.

When and Where?

Friday, April 12th - 6 pm to 9 pm and Saturday, April 13th - 9 am to 6 pm at Envy Labs in Downtown Orlando

What will I learn?

  • How to install Ruby via RVM or RailsInstaller
  • Basic Ruby syntax
  • How to try your Ruby code (irb)
  • How to go from requirements to a new working Rails application
  • How to get your application online
  • The basic tools a RoR developer uses (source control, editor, console, local server)

By the end of the workshop, you'll have an application on the internet that connects to a database and reads and writes information.

Do I have to attend both days?

Friday night will be the Installfest, where we'll meet one another and install all necessary software. Saturday will be spent learning and writing code. Attendance at the Installfest is mandatory if you want to participate Saturday.

Who should attend?

Total programming novices, system administrators, and developers of other languages are welcome to attend. We'll have different classes separated by experience level. Please fill out this survey to help us assign groups: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RMRQ6DJ
