Rails Girls Tampere 25-26 September 2015

Rails Girls comes to Tampere again! During the free two-day workshop we'll dive into the magical world of Ruby on Rails. The application period is over. We got over 260 applications! All applicants have been informed personally about the selections.

The official after party is organized in Skål (Koskikeskuksen ravintolamaailma) in Hatanpään Valtatie 1.
The party is open to anyone looking to meet like-minded people and listen to impressive speakers and live music. Welcome!

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

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