Hello Girls!
Rails Girls comes to Szczecin in October 2016! During the free two-day workshop we'll dive into the magical world of Ruby on Rails. Applications will be open in September

You learn designing, prototyping and coding with the help from our coaches.

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

How much does the workshop cost? Nothing, it's free! You just need to be excited!
Can men attend? Yes, but you need to be accompanied by an interested lady. Also, girls are given a priority.

Who is this aimed for? The upcoming edition is for girls with basic knowledge of working with a computer. Most of the speeches and small group work is done in Polish. Please bring your laptop.

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
