How much does the workshop cost? Nothing, it's free! You just need to be excited!

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. Speeches and workshops are in polish or english. Please bring your laptop.

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

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

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