FAQ

How much does the workshop cost? Nothing, it's free! You just need to be excited! And please bring your laptop.

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. Workshop and presentations are in Polish or English.

I think I might be too old for Rails Girls. You're not. It's about "girl power", not your age.

Can men attend? Yes, but women are given a priority.

But I know nothing about programming. Great, apply right now! We all have been absolute beginners at some point in our life.
