Rails Girls goes Krakow: join the two-day bake off to the exciting world of building web applications with Ruby on Rails, with some jam-making action with fellow Railsberry attendees.

The applications for 2012 are closed. The 2015 RailsGirlsKrakow is here.

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