About this event

NOTE: RSVP's for this event will not be handled on Meetup -- sign up HERE on Bridge Troll!

Also, follow Rails Bridge Chicago on Meetup if you want to be informed of other future workshops!

Are you interested in learning how to create dynamic web applications?  Want to get an in-depth introduction to Ruby on Rails? RailsBridge is back, ladies; it's time to level up!

RailsBridge is a 100% free workshop that does not require any previous programming, Rails, Ruby, or computer science knowledge. If you’re a beginner, we’ll teach you how to rock the command line in no time. If you have experience, we’ll get your WebDev expertise even closer to final-boss-fight status.

This is a two-day event hosted at Braintree. Friday evening we'll have an installfest, where we’ll help set up your computer with all of the things that enable you to dive into code cranium-first. On Saturday, Braintree will be code central from 10:30am sharp until the crack of 6:30pm, when we’ll move to the after party location (TBA) and party down!

Dinner on Friday and breakfast + lunch on Saturday will be provided, free of charge. Childcare is also provided free of charge.  If you need childcare and haven't told us yet, please get in touch right away for details.

This event is primarily for people who identify as women. Others are welcome to participate as an attending woman’s guest.

Note: we're capping this event at 70 students, but plan to host many more workshops in the future. If you sign up you are committing to attending both days. If, after you’ve signed up, you realize you’re actually scheduled to go skydiving with Laverne Cox and Ruth Bader Ginsburg that weekend, please please please update your RSVP. There’ll be no hard feelings! We know that life has a way of happening in unpredictable ways. If you sign up and don’t show up for one or both days, my roommate will find you and scowl at you most fearsomely.

If you are experienced with Ruby on Rails and would like to TA for this workshop, TA sign-up is available through the Bridge Troll page (sign up as a Volunteer and select “TA” as your volunteer preference).

Don't forget - all RSVPs are managed through Bridge Troll, so click through to sign up for the workshop. Looking forward to ruling the web with you!
