Rails Girls Brisbane 8 June 2019

Rails Girls comes to Brisbane! During the free one-day workshop we’ll dive into the magical world of Ruby on Rails.

We are offering two tracks:

For beginners: the regular Rails Girls tutorial

For not-so-beginners: Rails Girls Next exercises to deepen your understanding of Ruby, Rails, Sinatra and the web.

You learn more about Ruby, how the internet works, and test driven development.

You need your own laptop, curiosity and a positive attitude!

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

Do you have a code of conduct? Yes, it is on the ruby.org.au website. We expect attendees, coaches, and sponsor representatives to behave respectfully to make sure everyone has a great time.

Will there be coffee? Hells yeah!
