About the workshop

Want to learn to code? We can teach you, and we do this for free 😃
All, to make technology more approachable for women.

How it works:

Rails Girls London is an event (well actually it's a hands on workshop!), that runs over a day and a half, Friday evening, from 18:30 (we finish around 21:30) and Saturday from 9:00 to 18:00. To understand how we split the time of the event you can see the timetable below.

We are now expanded to 300 people per event! That is around 110 coaches and 190 students ( you can imagine how much networking one can do with that 😉 ).
Students come from all kinds of professions, backgrounds and even countries, yes, amazingly people fly over to UK just for our event (a lot of times we even get coaches coming from different countries just for this, we love you guys!).

Our coaches, are all volunteers, in their day to day jobs they are all software engineers, working hard on making all that awesomeness you see online. You can see list of coaches are coming to the event below. We are adding new ones every day, so check again after. Some of our coaches have attended Rails Girls London as students at some point, since then they got a job as a developer, and now they come back to teach others 😃

At the event, we put students in pairs, and assign them a coach. Dont panic, we make sure that the two students in a pair are of the same level. And no, you dont need to have any previous knowledge of programming. Your coach will explain everything starting from the basics. By the end of the workshop you will have your own website online (and you will have that proud feeling of achievement probably as well) 😃

And to make this all is even more awesome, we have amazing support from our sponsors! Thanks to them, we can make this all happen, and have beautiful comfortable venues, full catering and the cool goodies (you'll see what we mean). You can see the list of our sponsors below, and talk to them all at the event, they are incredible!

Got a question?

We are always happy to answer it!
We have multiple channels and many awesome people to help you.

Friday - Installation Party

We call Friday evening a party because its going to be fun, there will be loads of networking, getting to know your fellow students and coaches, sharing pizza and drinks, and of course a DJ, you'll regret it if you miss it!
Bring your laptop!

Please note: We kindly ask you to be present both days.

Saturday - Workshop

9:00 - 9:45 Registration & Coffee

Saturday is the hands on workshop day.
We kick off in the morning by having a breakfast and loads of coffee (you will need it, it's gonna be a lot of brain work on this day 😃)
Light breakfast - (we cater for all dietary restrictions, just make sure to tell us what you don't eat in the application form)

9:45 - 11:00 Welcome & Sponsor presentations

We'll let you know the schedule for the day.
Our sponsors will introduce themselves and do brief presentations for the attendees.
We will then split everyone into pairs and assign you a coach to proceed with the workshop.
