Hello world!

Rails Girls comes to Raleigh-Durham! During the free two-day workshop we'll dive into the magical world of Ruby on Rails.

Applying for the event has closed. We'll let you know on September 20th whether you've been chosen.

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

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