Here in DC, we're about more than just politics and monuments, we have a strong technology community that loves Ruby and Rails. This summer, Rails Girls DC is hosting a 2-day workshop leading up to RubyNation.
Come to learn or teach about building web applications with Ruby on Rails.
More details coming soon! Follow @RailsGirlsDC for the latest updates.

Do you have a code of conduct? Yes - it is here. We expect attendees, coaches, and sponsor representatives to behave respectfully to make sure everyone has a great time.
