Rails Girls is back in Sydney! During the free one-day workshop we’ll dive into the magical world of Ruby on Rails.
We are offering two tracks:
For beginners: We'll dive into the magical world of Ruby on Rails. You'll learn designing, prototyping and coding with the help from our coaches. You don't need any previous coding experience. You do need your own laptop, curiosity and a sprinkle of imagination!
For not so beginners: Rails Girls Next, We'll be diving even deeper into programming in Ruby, covering topics like Test Driven Development, API's with the support of our wonderful coaches. To participate in this workshop, you're required to have either done the original Rails Girls day, or have some prior programming experience.

You need your own laptop, curiosity and a sprinkle of imagination!
