Event Details

DESCRIPTION

About this event

A free event for people who are underrepresented in tech to learn how to create web applications using the Ruby on Rails framework.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our curriculum is designed for people who are complete beginners to programming!


What will I learn?

The workshop will teach the basics of creating a web application in the Ruby on Rails framework.

Over the course of the workshop, we will cover:

  • What happens when a browser requests a dynamic web page?
  • What is a web framework? Why would you want one?
  • Dividing up code responsibilities with the Model, View, Controller architecture
  • Saving data in a database with Rails' object-relational mapper

HTML and CSS will NOT be covered.


Who should attend?

Total programming novices, web designers, system administrators, and developers of other languages are welcome to attend.

There is no age restriction, but if you're under 18 and would like to attend, please bring an adult.

Parents: If you cannot find a babysitter for that weekend, we can provide free onsite childcare. A huge thanks to thoughtbot for this opportunity!


What if I already know some Rails?

Experienced programmers should note that the class is geared to beginners. If you've completed the Hartl tutorial, you've gone well past what we'll cover.

Consider coming to Boston Ruby's monthly Project Night instead. There are many friendly Rubyists available to help you over configuration bumps and answer questions.
