RailsBridge workshops are a free and fun way to get started or level up with Rails, Ruby, and other web technologies. RailsBridge organizes and teaches free workshops on Rails, Ruby, and HTML & CSS in cities all over the world.
Led by an all-volunteer team of seasoned, enthusiastic Ruby and Rails developers, this workshop introduces women of all backgrounds to the concepts, tools, and techniques of Ruby and Rails development. Our audience is those with no or little programming experience.
Ruby on Rails, often simply called “Rails,” is an open source web application framework which runs on the Ruby programming language. It is a full-stack framework: it allows creating pages and applications that gather information from the web server, talk to or query the database, and render templates out of the box.
Ruby on Rails emphasizes the use of well-known software engineering patterns and principles, such as:
- Active record pattern
- Convention over configuration (CoC)
- Don’t repeat yourself (DRY)
- Model–view–controller (MVC).
Space is donated by Sony and Workshop will be held at Sony DADC/rGenerator.
