Rails Girls Frankfurt

Welcome to the local branch of the global Rails Girls community

Rails Girls workshops and meetings are about spreading the fun of code and to discover the world of web development in a joyfull and relaxed atmosphere.

Participants can be of any age, with basic knowledge of working with a computer. We’ve had people of all ages and knowledge levels taking part. For more details, see the FAQ below.

The events and workshops are free. In Frankfurt, we are a team of about 15 coaches, there to helping you code and answering all questions. Find our team names below.

We just had our 2nd workshop in march 2014 and it was blast! A date for the next one is not set yet. However, we do have regular meet-ups now, every 4-6 weeks, where we continue to code and have fun. Everybody interested is welcome!

An impression of our Rails Girls Workshop 2013:

At workshops, you will learn prototyping, coding and designing your web ideas with the help from our coaches.
We introduce you to web coding in general and Ruby on Rails as one of the open-source web developing frameworks.

How much does the participation at Rails Girls workshops cost? Nothing, it's free! You just need to be excited!

Who is this aimed for? Women of any age with basic knowledge of working with a computer. We’ve had people of all ages taking part. Most of the speeches are given in english, but small group work is done in german. Please bring your laptop.

Can men attend? Yes, but you need to be accompanied by an interested lady. Also, girls are given a priority.

I know how to program - How can I help? We’re also looking for people to be coaches. We’ll have a two-three hour workshop before the event to walk you through the curriculum. Email us
