Event Details

This is a charity workshop put on by Rocky Mountain Ruby.  Please read more about the event on our workshop page.

Railsbridge: Intro to Ruby and Rails

In this workshop, we'll take you through building a complete web application using Ruby on 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. We'll meet up Tuesday night to install all of the software you need, and then spend workshop day (Wednesday) learning and writing code.

Total programming novices, system administrators, developers in other languages, and folks who attended our previous workshops are all welcome.

We'll be using the RailsBridge format and materials for this workshop. You can find out more about RailsBridge at and

Once you register you'll be provided with more details on the workshop as well as asked a few questions about your operating system, level and type of programming experience. NOTE: This workshop runs the entire day (both morning and afternoon sessions).


Each participant will need their own computer. We will have an installfest Tuesday night for each participant that you should plan on attending. The installfest is a crucial part of the workshop, even if you’ve already gone through the instructions independently. If on OS X, you will need to install Xcode from your home network as this will take a long time and must be done before the installfest or the workshop. There are a ton of moving parts when setting up a development environment, and the reason that we’re able to get through the curriculum on Wednesday is that every single student has had their dev environment checked and has been awarded a sticker for their successes. There are also enough changing parts that even if you’ve been to a workshop in the past, you should attend the Installfest to get re-verified.

If for some reason you can't make it to the installfest on Tuesday night, we'll help get you set up! Just let us know beforehand if you won't be able to make it.

Donation Required

These workshops, while free to secure a ticket, are all about raising money for local charities.  You will need to make a donation to cover the sessions you wish to attend.  You can do this at the event or ahead of time.  If you are making a donation beforehand you will need to bring your printed receipt of your donation.  Most sessions require a $30 or more donation.  There are special reserve tickets for supporters that donate $100 or more for a session.  We are offering a few seats at this level as a way to encourage those to give more than the minimum and be recognized for it.  For instance, if you wished to attend Play with Ruby and The Hashrocket Way, you could make a single $60 donation to cover both sessions as the minimum.

Our overall goal is to top $5000 total.  Please be generous and help our meet our goal!  Here is the list of our local charities:
