How much does the workshop cost? Nothing, it's free! You just need to be excited! And please bring your laptop.

Who is this aimed for? Women of any age with basic knowledge of working with a computer.

I think I might be too old for Rails Girls. You're not. It's about "girl power", not your age. We’ve had people of all ages taking part.

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

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

But I don't have a laptop. Let us know and we will arrange one for you.

But I don't speak Polish. Polish is not required.

I signed up for the event, am I automatically attending? Nope - since we have limited space you will get a confirmation mail if you are selected.

How do you choose the attendees? We want a diverse group of people who are motivated and curious about learning.
