Rails Girls Leipzig 29-30 August 2014


Rails Girls Leipzig comes back for a second round! During the free two-day workshop we'll dive into the magical world of Ruby on Rails. We take you on a tour through all the development stages of an app. Sure, it's not a super fancy app but maybe it's the first step to you multi-million dollar company. Or just the beginning of a wonderful friendship with all things code and programming!

Applications: here.

You learn the process of developing an app: designing, prototyping and coding with the help from our fantastic coaches.

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

Want to help? We are still looking for Rails coaches and sponsors - the more, the better! Help us to make Rails Girls Leipzig happen. Email us.

How much does the workshop cost? Nothing, it's free! You just need a laptop (literally any laptop. We don't care if it's Mac or Windows). But feel free to contact us if you know about any interested sponsors.

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. The workshop language will be german. If you're not a native speaker, no problem - we'll find a group for you which is comfortable working in english. Please bring your laptop.

Can men attend? Yes, but you need to be accompanied by an interested lady. Also, girls are given a priority.

I know how to program - How can I help? We’re also looking for people to be coaches. You don't need to be a wizard with Ruby on Rails, since the workshop is really basic. And we are more than happy to chat with you before the event and to walk you through the curriculum. Email us
