Installfest

6:00pm Thursday, June 6th

Our event is broken up into 2 days of instruction. Thursday night will be the Installfest to make sure that your machine is ready to ride come Friday. We will make sure Ruby and Rails is installed and your development environment is sufficiently for you to build your first application.

Workshop

9:00am - 5:00pm Friday, June 7th

This workshop is intended for anyone who is interested in learning Ruby on Rails.

In this workshop, we'll take you through the steps to build a web application using Ruby on Rails. We'll have different classes depending on by experience level. Total novices can start with an Intro to Programming, while experienced programmers can jump right into Ruby and Rails. By the end of the workshop, you'll have an application on the internet that connects to a database and reads and writes information.

Student Checklist

- Each participant needs to bring their own laptop and power supply.

- If you have a Mac, download and install Xcode on your laptop before coming to Installfest on Thursday. (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 is still wise to download ahead of the Installfest on Thursday.

FAQ

Q. Can men attend?

A. Men are welcome, but because this is a female outreach program, we ask that you bring along a female friend to introduce her to Ruby! (Sharing is caring!)
