Q&A panel


How much does the workshop cost? Nothing, it's free! You just need to be excited!

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. Most of the program is run in english and please bring your laptop.

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

Does sending my application earlier increase my chance of being accepted? Nope. Either you send it 5 seconds after applications open or 5 seconds before applications close - you're fine. So take your time to fill it with all the relevant information. We are looking for the person with the highest motivation and who will benefit the most from the workshop, not someone who is the fastest

Is this going to be in English? Speaches will be given in English but workshop part will be in English or Polish depending on the group. Make sure to specify which language you feel comportable with in the application form.

What's your code of conduct? Rails Girls is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Read the full code of conduct
