About Rails Girls London
We are making technology more approachable for women.
Workshop participants can learn sketching, prototyping, basic programming and get introduced to the world of technology. Our aim is to give tools and a community for women to understand technology and to build their ideas. We do this by providing a great experience on building things and by making technology more approachable. We've got an amazing group of coaches and students who are always happy to answer questions and share their experiences on our Slack channel.
Aimed at complete beginners, it's OK if you have never touched any code before.
Everyone is a volunteer, coaches are all developers working in all kinds of companies. Some of our coaches were once our students, since then they pursued a career in web development. They want to make a difference! :)
You want to learn something new and exciting.
You want to promote the idea and help us teach our students to understand the basics of programming.
It's a 1.5 day FREE workshop. Friday evening & Saturday full day. All you need is to bring your laptop.
You get to help students with everything from installation to deployment of the app during the 1.5 days.
We put two students with one coach, by the end of the workshop you have a live working app on the web! It's awesome :)
We provide a tutorial for you to explain to your two students at the workshop. You can be very creative and make cool things. It's awesome :)

Helping us with the workshop financially
We rely on the generosity of our sponsors to provide us with a venue, catering and refreshments, while also covering the costs of making the whole experience memorable for our attendees. Without this, we would be unable to continue to make such a big impact in the community. Sponsorships and contributions at any level are most welcome. Please get in touch to find out more.
