Witaj Warszawo!

Rails Girls comes to Warsaw: join the free, two-day crash-course to the exciting world of building web applications with Ruby on Rails.

Applications are now closed.

Rails Girls aims to give tools for girls and women to build their ideas.

You learn designing, prototyping and coding by doing it with help from our coaches.

What we have done during the event?

Most of the participants were begginers- either they have never been programming or just a little in the past. During the first day they were learning how to code using tryruby.org and during second day they made their first applications.

One of the groups (coach Tomek, Ania, Paula, Ola and Wojtek) developed an advanced version of the app. It’s an application for making a record of Rails Girls events – together with photos and videos of the participants. Every event is described with the date when it was held and location marked on the map. You can add photos of the participants and videos from the event. Every member might add her name, e-mail and few words about.
You can see it here: Meet Rails Girls!
