Ruby For Beginners

Tuesday, March 15

6:30pm - 9:00pm

Join us for an introductory dive into Ruby, a beginner-friendly language used on servers in backend web development (i.e., the stuff that goes on between entering a URL and getting a web page back). In this workshop, we will walk you through the basics of the Ruby language and how to use it to set up a basic web server.

Key Takeaways:

    • All the tools you need to get up, running and coding with Ruby
    • Ruby syntax for basic programming concepts like variables, loops, methods, strings, arrays and hashes
    • The basics of how the World Wide Web works under the hood
    • Setting up a simple web server and sending HTML pages to a browser
    • Using your server to interact with Twitter via its API


    • Please bring your own laptop (Mac, PC or Chromebook)
    • Please download and install Sublime Text (Hint: the download button is on the homepage). 
    • Light snacks will be provided
    • This event is open to all adult (18+) beginners
