Hello world!

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

This year we will have a parallel rails kids event from a growing community of kids that have met for the last three years learning to code with ruby on rails.

Apply now! Applications are open until the 20th of April.

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